There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I noticed evidence that the seller cares about customer satisfaction. The scale came with two uncoated batteries packaged in separate baggies to prevent discharge (as opposed to coated batteries - something complained about in previous reviews when the coating interfered with the batteries' function); this means the seller became aware of the problem and made an adjustment. And the seller emailed me on the day of delivery to check in with me; this means the seller followed the shipment closely, noted delivery date and time, and cared enough about my response to pro-actively open a line of communication with me. I am impressed by this.
My only complaint is a small one: that the scale does not return to zero when I remove the stylus. It settles in at a reading of .4 grams when I remove the stylus. So if I want to remeasure the tracking force, I have to turn the scale off and on again to get it back to zero. But that is a minor complaint and is completely outweighed by the confidence I feel that my styli are now tracking with the correct force.
I recommend this product and this seller.
Recently, I upped my game a bit, and bought more expensive cartridges (Denon DL-110, AT-440Mlb, AT33Mono, etc) and became just a little more cognizant of what the tracking force and VTA were. I am confident in my manual method, but always wondered if the weak link was the counterweight / numbers, and how fine pitch the threads on the tonearm were - or in other words how accurate was the counterweight.
I bought this scale to verify the TF, and learn if my counterweight was accurate. Out of the package, the scale turned on fine after installing the included batteries, and out of the box it measured the expected 5g using the included calibration weight. Then, I put it on my turntable mat and tried it out - I like it! Very easy to use. I also like the fact it turns off after a short time so battery life stays high.
Better news is my manual calibration method was fairly accurate too - with my manual method on both TT's, I am able to get within 0.1 - 0.2g accuracy range - I never would have known that without the scale to verify. What the scale did was help me dial in my "zero" point when balancing the tonearm, before adding the weight. It helped me find the right spot, and now my manual method is even better thanks to the scale. I will double check periodically to ensure everything is in order with the scale....
Five stars, for the money it does what I wanted it to do, and I am sure the accuracy is fine. The only question mark is how long it will last, and will it maintain accuracy. It has a calibration weight included, and can be calibrated, which is a plus.
If your expectations are not too high, and the product comes working I don't see how it can be anything other than five stars The only thing that will affect that rating will be if it dies in a shorter than expected period of time.
Thanks for reading.
Pic included: Scale, batteries, instruction manual and calibration weight - I received this all in a nice pouch well boxed. The pouch is not included in the pic - it is just a cheap pouch with a velcro closure, nothing special but a nice touch.
The cost is extremely reasonable (finally!) considering how many years that digital gauges like this one have often run hundreds of dollars. You won't use this all that much in that you probably won't be changing out cartridges very often, but it's essential for when you do. I usually double check mine one a year anyway because over time the compliance of the cantilever (needle assembly) can change, and thus your tracking force will need adjusting.
A bonus is that they give you an extra battery- though I can't see them running down for about 3-5 years anyway.
