The need for a digital gauge?

I can't say I see the need for the precision of a digital gauge for initial cartridge set up. So long as the VTF is within the recommended range, is not the final setting then done by ear?

The value I see with a digital gauge is to measure VTF after the optimal setting is determined. Then for those who swap out cartridges it would be easier/faster to reset to that value whenever that cartridge was put into play again.
