For Correct Arm Height
When Rega tonearms are fitted to turntables from other manufacturers it may be necessary to add a Rega Arm Spacer to achieve the correct arm height.
Circular spacers are available for the RB250, RB300, and RB600 in thicknesses of 2mm, 4mm and 10mm. An arm sleeve nut is also available for circumstances where the arm base does not protrude below the arm mounting board.
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.
