Compliance & Weight
The SL1 MC Cartridge compliance and weight match very well the 12g effective mass of the Technics SL-1200 tonearm.
Please refer to the reference Cartridge Resonance Evaluator hosted at vinylengine.com for more information.
The SL1 MC Cartridge height is 17mm, and the perfect Vertical Tracking Angle (VTA) is attained when the Technics SL-1200 tonearm height is set at about 0.
The wood body shape allows all alignments methods with the Technics SL-1200 headshell, including Baerwald.
The SL1 is easily installed via 2 bolts – no nuts required.
