Audio-Technica AT120Eb + Headshell/Cartridge Plug~n~Spin Combo Kit - STRAIGHT Arm

You will receive a complete solution that is ready to plug into most any Japanese-style Straight tonearm. You can be up and spinning in a few moments. Upon receipt in almost all cases, all you will have to do is:

  • Perform tracking adjustment per below instructions.

For additional details and write-up, please see our AT120E page.
Note that the cartridge arrives mounted to the headshell 'well-enough' aligned but not custom precision-aligned to your specific turntable. This means that in most cases it will work out of the box but the more discerning ear will likely want to do some additional alignment.

How do I adjust tracking pressure and anti skate?
If you are lucky enough to have these two adjustments, move tracking force counter weight until the needle hovers perfectly balanced above the record. Now rotate the dial with numbers (not the weight itself) to zero. (this is zero grams pressure on record) then rotate weight AND numbers together to the recommended tracking pressure for your needle. Then rotate anti skate to have a setting of equal value. Basically you want the least amount of needle pressure pushing down on the record as possible without it skipping or sounding bad. That will give you the longest life from your needle and records.

NOTE: Anti skate is adjusting side to side pressure WITHIN GROOVE of record. Tracking pressure is how hard the needle is pushing down inside the groove.

If your tonearm has a height-adjustable base, make sure the arm is parallel with the record surface.
