2mm Arm height adjustment spacer – universal.
Lower cost version of the 2mm stainless spacer. Laser cut from 2mm aluminium and anodised black. Fits all Rega three point tonearms including the 2016 range of Planar turntables.
This spacer replaces the previous plastic spacer and offers better performance and support for the tonearm.
Note: On Rega turntables spacers should not be necessary unless you are you using an exceptionally deep bodied cartridge from another manufacturer.
Arm height or V.T.A adjustment can be a controversial subject. Rega believes that the integrity of the arm fixing onto the arm mounting board is much more important than the questionable facility of arm adjustment. The arm should be reasonably parallel to the record surface or slightly lower at the mounting. The only time a spacer is necessary to raise the arm height is if the rear of a cartridge is hitting the record whilst playing.
