    MY TAKE: This is it, Vinylphiles, the very best cartridge alignment system you can buy. As you know, your analog rig is only as good as the set-up, and cartridge alignment is the cornerstone. It’s absolutely critical that your alignment is spot-on, and there’s no better, more accurate tool on the market than the cartridge alignment system from Dr. Chris Feickert. - Galen Carol

    If you are really serious about analog, the Feickert Cartridge Alignment system is worth every penny, and then some.


    New NG version is smaller and even easier to use!


    REVIEWS:

    "Enthusiasts with even moderately priced analog setups will find this protractor to be indispensable…No more guessing over crude paper or plastic overhang markers or mirrored devices; this thing works like a charm." – The Absolute Sound's 9 "Must-Have" Analog Accessories – Wayne Garcia, The Absolute Sound, June/July 2007


    "Okay, let's get this said early; I consider this a must-own tool for anyone who cares about proper tonearm setup and cartridge geometry. This beautifully manufactured precision device, the work of Dr. Chris Feickert, incorporates both Baerwald and Lofgren geometries, the two principle approaches to cartridge alignment – one on each side. It's also a universal device, handling arms of 200 to 440mm effective length! It's easy to use and as far as I'm concerned, simply the best. It is an essential tool for your vinyl toolbox and with proper care, will last a lifetime. Highly recommended." – Richard S. Foster, Hi-Fi+, Issue 48


    "Feickert's kit is impressive, especially if you want something more than a cardboard or plastic template. Most impressive is the metal jig for measuring the pivot-to-spindle distances – nicely made, if industrial…It looks more complicated than it is; a thorough reading of the instructions will have you setting up cartridges in minutes…trust me: it will provide peace of mind for even the most truly neurotic of vinyl users." – Ken Kessler, Hi-Fi News, August 2006


    "Rather than taking a one-size-fits-all approach, the Feickert Universal Protractor takes into account the distance from the tonearm pivot to the platter spindle, as well as the tonearm's effective length, making it truly universal. "Ruggedly built and an ingenious design," said MF. Proper overhang and zenith angle were easily and reliably set. "I highly recommend the Feickert Universal Protractor." - Michael Fremer, Stereophile
