Picked up a MINT LP Protractor

Got a deal on the 'gon. Someone just happened to be selling one made for the Rega arm on Michell (standard Rega offset). I have several protractors, mirrored ones, ones that came with the table, custom printed, printed on paper, etc. All work well, and I'm familiar with the process.

This thing is not rocket science, but it is more precision than any of my other protractors. What it does do is allow very precise adjustments. Very fine lines are printed, plus a nice set of lines to make sure you're on center using the mirror parralax effect.

Anyway, after a couple hours of tweaking (this thing will test your patience...and my setup wasn't that far off, but it was off) I was rewarded with better stereo separation, imaging, and clarity. It really wasn't subtle.

Franky, I was surprised by the difference.

Great tool!
