For almost three hours, Fremer covers each step of turntable setup. Specifically, he tackles a Pro-Ject RM-5, a Rega P5 and a VPI Scoutmaster. From those, Fremer believes any viewer can set up any turntable. The disc's running time is just under three hours and contains a PDF file with additional setup details, including tonearm/cartridge matching and VTA adjustment. There will be simple animation and graphics to illustrate certain points. Fremer takes you as far back in the chain as the actual record cutting with interviews of George Marino, Senior Mastering Engineer at Sterling Sound in NYC.
This disc's been a long time coming. There've been attempts at set-up instructionals, but most have suffered the same math-class, bored-to-death fate. If you read Stereophile's Analog Corner, or Fremer's own musicangle.com, you know this one is going to make a serious attempt to engage your wit and come through with the goods on all things turntable.
