Michael Fremer, the senior contributing writer to Stereophile Magazine and an expert in all things analog, presents his Practical Guide to Turntable Set-Up! Shot in his listening room, Fremer sets up a Project RM-5 (known outside the U.S. as the RPM-5), a VPI Scoutmaster and a Rega P5, which he feels are among the most ubiquitous and popular 'tables in the world and covered both fixed bearing and unipivot set-up.
"The video was designed to allay the fears of many audio buffs about setting
up their turntables, and it should be most successful at that effort. Veterans
can pick up some pointers too... The DVD is sure to be of valuable functional
service to many audio buffs..." - John Sunier, audaud.com

Featured in the October 2006 Wired Magazine's Playlist section!
This DVD includes a tech section explaining all of the terminology complete with animated graphics and a PDF file embedded in the disc's DVD-ROM section including even greater technical detail that allows buyers to print out a complete tutorial.
This DVD Video is both informative and entertaining, including much mirth and comedy along with many bonus surprise features. Fremer commenting that "Perhaps the disc will not be as exciting as "The Terminator," or "T2," but it should give "T3" a run for the money, though with fewer explosions."

"21st Century Vinyl (Fremer's Practical Guide to Turntable Set-up) is
a helpful bridge between the first flush of analog enthusiasm and a longterm
survival strategy. Have you rediscovered or inherited a good collection? Or
found a hot flea market full of $2 discs? Worried about what'll happen when
you're face to face with the contraption that plays them? Quit fretting. When
the moment of truth comes, just set up a worktable in front of your TV (or vice
versa) and go through the setup process step by step with a master." - Mark

“Before I watched your DVD I have to admit I was hopeless at setting up my
turntable, needing to call my dealer to the rescue when something went amiss.
After watching you explain and demonstrate the possible adjustments I was
somewhat at a loss, but after getting out my toolkit and following the process
step by step it seemed as if I was a seasoned professional. I breezed trough it
and thoroughly enjoyed the process. I feel I can finally and confidently say
that I’ve begun to master the setup of my favourite source and I’m sure I’ll get
better at it too. Your DVD has been a godsend, thanks for making it !!!” -

"It's awesome" - Bob Weston (recording engineer, record producer, bass
player in Steve Albini's band Shellac)
"Now, about the disc, I love the whole thing..." - a buyer in Australia
"Your intro to the DVD (that's as far as I've gotten) was so f...king
funny....the US vs Brit vs German approach to LP liners had my WIFE laughing and
making me pause the disc so she wouldn't miss anything when she was getting
ready for bed." - Joe Harley, record producer, VP product development,
