    • Engage the tonearm clamp.

    • This will secure the tone arm in place to reduce movement while handling.

    • Twist the counterweight counterclockwise to tighten it onto the tonearm.

    • Disengage the tone arm clamp from Step 1.

    • Adjust the counterweight until the arm is in a balanced state.

    • Counterclockwise adds weight.

    • Clockwise removes weight.

    • Once balanced, the tonearm should freely float above the rest without moving higher or lower.

    • At this stage we are not worried about the state of the numbers showing on the counterweight.

    • Engage the tone arm clamp from Step 1.

    • Adjust ONLY the front dial of the counterweight such that the 0 mark is in line with the mark on the tone arm.

    • If the whole counterweight moves this will cause the tonearm to become imbalanced. Go back to Step 2 if this occurs.

    • Twist the rear of the counterweight counterclockwise until the front dial's 2 position meets the mark on the tonearm.

    • The front dial is just an indicator, and does not control the weight itself.


After setting the weight to 2 grams (or otherwise specified by the manual of the stylus), the tone should drop into the rest when lifted.

If the problem you were experiencing is still occurring, these issues could be linked to:

  1. Dirty record and/or stylus.
  2. Damaged record and/or needle.
  3. Incorrect audio output selection for accompanying speakers.
  4. Damaged and/or disconnected RCA cables.
  5. Stuck pin(s) on headshell connection (for models with removeable headshells).
  6. Damaged internal components
  7. Faulty speakers
