Hi Mark. I’m trying to make sure the P2S is 290mm, that’s all.
According to the designer, at 290mm, the SPU G-type pick-up will be aligned perfectly with the Timestep T-612, which has different geometry from the Groovemaster II arm. I could use the included protractor and slide the arm base for best fit, but the SPU is so bulky and low-riding that I can’t see under it properly to make sure it’s on the grid correctly. Also, I can’t use the Dr Feickert tool for any other set up criteria than P2S with the Timestep arm, as Audio Creative confinmred that the Feickert is set up for DIN Loefgren A rather than IEC Loefgren A, so will not work. The Smartractor device - which the arm was designed around) would be perfect but it’s around £400. So just need an accurate ruler-type tool to set the P2S to the correct 290mm, then it should be perfect. I’m currently waiting for a setscrew and Allen key to arrive from Holland so I can move the sliding base to 290mm. I should probably wait until these arrive before going any further really.
