When Rega arms are fitted to turntables from other manufacturers it may be necessary to add a Rega Arm Spacers to achieve the correct arm height.
This custom-made, three-point 2mm thick spacer fits Rega RB301, RB700, RB900, and RB1000 tonearms.
Note: On all Rega turntables, spacers should not be necessary.
Arm Height or V.T.A Adjustment
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.
