The SMARTractor - Tonearm Alignment Tool

The SMARTractor - Tonearm Alignment Tool

With the SMARTractor the user can precisely alignment and position tonearms with up to 410 mm P2S / mounting distance!!

An unique bundle of features:

The SMARTractor comes with 5 (five) tangential curves combined in 1 (one) template.
the SMARTractor’s template is made from 3mm (= same thickness as 180 gr LP) strong premium grade german XT mirrored acrylic supplied by Evonik.
no-error-possible single-point alignment with 3mm deep parallax (for ALL helping lines) – an extreme precise, easy and fast alignment.
super easy to use with 1-point fixed setting for every tangential curve.
all alignment lines are cnc-laser cut hairlines.
incorporates real glass aluminum-frame magnifier with automatic focus jig for unrivaled precise magnified view during alignment.
all 5 tangential alignments are based on true triangular positioning and thus are independent of effective length and thus suitable for ALL pivot tonearms, no matter what their effective length or mounting position.

The SMARTractor further comes with in-built direct mounting distance – P2S -measurement with 0.05mm accuracy.

The total of 5 tangential options of course includes the old audio phono standards set by Loefgren and Baerwald in the late 1930s and 1940s in both – IEC and DIN – norms.

  • Loefgren A / Baerwald DIN
  • Loefgren A / Baerwald IEC
  • Loefgren B DIN
  • Loefgren B IEC

 

and: …..

 

furthermore the SMARTractor features the critically acclaimed UNI DIN tangential curve.

An all new tangential curve which is the latest calculation and the first one which does really take into account the special requirements and circumstances of a stereo stylus tracking a non linear stereo groove with increasing differences between the two groove walls.
