When Rega arms are fitted to turntables from other manufacturers, it may be necessary to add our Adjustable arm height spacer to achieve the correct arm height. Adjustment is rarely required on Rega turntables. If adjustment is necessary, it is recommended to remove the lid when using the 4mm and above setting as the balance weight may contact the lid. A smaller diameter tungsten weight is available from your Rega dealer for use with the RB303 to solve this issue.
Note: On all Rega turntables, spacers should not be necessary, unless using another manufacturer’s cartridge.
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.
