    4It works, but needs better instructions for non Pro Ject turntables
    By Howard Kipfer
    I would give it a 5 star rating if it had better instructions, especially for non Pro-Ject turntables. I was able to verify with other methods that this alignment gauge works and it does not take hours like a baerwald method where you find the overhang with two points and trial and error. How about a DVD instruction disk or a web site with video instructions? I would have paid a little more for that as I do not want to be ALMOST sure my cartridge is aligned, I want to know with confidence that it IS aligned. It does solve the problem with alignment to the tonearm pivot that is the issue with the GEO DISK where one has to use an imaginary line of sight to the pivot to use as the base of cartridge alignment. The Pro-Ject is expensive, but, my Beatle albums I bought in the 60's are worth it!

    4Almost perfect
    By Jee Chung
    For owners of Pro-ject turntables, this is a must-have. I have other cartrige alignment tools as well, but this one was built for Pro-ject turntables and makes the job easier. The ONLY additional feature I would ask for is for the grid lines and the mirror to be combined into one. If you put the alignment grid over the mirror, then visualing aligning the cartridge against the grid becomes much less error-prone.

    3Not the fool proof alignment tool you're looking for
    By rolls
    This alignment tool is not at all worth the price. Is it more accurate than a free paper protractor? Maybe. Is it easier to use? Not quite. The item does feel well made and sturdy, however I highly doubt it really gives better results than a paper protractor. It uses a beam to determine the tonearm pivot point, but it still requires the user to estimate the exact center of the tonearms vertical axis. It gives beam length points for certain pro ject tonearms, but those points are only indicated on the beam with a number, no dots or vertical lines, so when lining up the number to the reference mark, it's anyone's guess as to which portion of the number should line up with the reference mark. This makes setting the beam length for a specific tonearm a bit ambiguous. After I spent about two hours trying to get everything lined up perfectly, I checked it against Project's paper protractor and the offset angle was off according to the paper. I suppose the only way to truly tell if it can improve your alignment is to do a before and after comparison with a test LP
