My Music Hall MMF-5’s setup is lacking after professionals in an audio specialty shop set it up and I set it up again using the HiFi News Test LP. Though this is a modest deck, I don’t feel I am getting the most out of the records I play. Luckily, in June Stereophile Magazine’s Michael Fremer will be releasing his 3 hour long Turntable Setup DVD.
Music Direct says:
How does Michael Fremer (Stereophile Contributing Editor and Analog Guru) start off his new turntable set-up DVD? With over 10 minutes of comedy, of course! But the coolest part of this three hour DVD is that it is filled with insight and expertise to help anyone get the most from their turntable! It’s a practical guide, no math and no complex geometric formulas. He goes through all the basic parameters on a Pro-Ject RM-5, a Rega P5 and a VPI Scoutmaster. There will be cool animation to highlight certain points and the most important part: he makes all this fun and easy, in a way only Mr. Fremer can! This is a project that will alleviate everyone’s fears regarding turntable set-up. That was his number one goal: To make everyone feel at ease attempting turntable set-up and optimization. This is a DVD that every analog lover will want on their shelves. Get a copy for yourself and one for your analog lovin’ friends! Turntable set-up has never been this much fun!
Joy, preorder pending.
