"Loaded with clear and easy to understand instructions which fully cover three different levels of turntable setup (good, better, best), this is the perfect instructional disc to allow any vinyl fan to lose that last excuse or overcome any remaining fears about changing cartridges and setting up and maintaining their own turntable."
"Michael walks the adventurous analog lover through the step-by-step set up process with a Pro-Ject RM 5, a Rega P5 and a VPI Scoutmaster. His affable sense of humor, combined with his vast knowledge on the subject, often merge to make these video primers as entertaining to watch, as they are instructional."

"21st Century Vinyl: Michael Fremer’s Practical Guide to Turntable Set-Up is a product that should have been around long before August 2006. It provides easy-to-follow, practical advice for obtaining the tools and knowledge necessary to complete competent setup of most turntables. The world is still filled with many technicians capable of providing excellent service when it comes to setting up analog gear. I don’t believe a person needs to worry about being at the 'mercy of a stranger' if he or she doesn’t want to attempt the job. That said, Michael Fremer has produced a resource that will allow many to recapture the hands-on nature of this hobby and have their record-spinners making fine music in no time. DIY? Go for it."
