Microscopic Stylus Analysis
We will inspect your cartridge under our optical microscope and custom jig for the quality of the stylus mount. This will result in identifying your cartridge's native Stylus Rake Angle (SRA) at a perfectly level headshell, nominal tracking force and perfect perpendicularity of the lens to the cantilever. You can then use this information and the WallyReference to adjust your tonearm very quickly to achieve 92 degree SRA in order to optimize your musical playback.
We will also analyze your cartridge's azimuth and zenith angle (if contact edges are visible) and provide instructions on how to quickly and easily align for ideal settings in your home.
Many stylii are improperly mounted by the manufacturer. If yours is too far off to achieve an acceptable SRA, we will help facilitate repair or replacement of your cartridge with the manufacturer.
Select the insurance coverage you want to have for the return shipping of your cartridge.
Once you place your order, WAM Engineering will contact you within one business day to arrange for receipt of the cartridge. Do not send cartridge until WAM Engineering has given instructions to do so.
WARNING: we are not responsible for cartridges which arrive at our laboratory in poor or non-functional condition nor are we responsible for cartridges delivered to us without signature required upon delivery.
