SMARTractor By Germany's Acoustical Systems Offers Precision Cartridge Alignment

The SMARTractor appears to be among the most precise devices available to set overhang and zenith angle. The designer even provides a variety of spindle insert to insure a snug fit.

It features set-up for Baerwald and Lofgren alignments and comes with a pivot to spindle setting device as well as a precision magnification jig that assures correct parallax when setting zenith angle.

I got a quick demo at the show from Immedia's Stirling Trayle. The SMARTractor, which sells for $550 will be available "late Spring." I hope to get one to evaluate for you some time soon.
