the scale lines up with the centerline marked along the top of the tone arm.
g. Rotate the counterweight including the downforce scale counter-clockwise (as seen from the front of
the turntable) until the scale shows the value corresponding to the pressure required for stylus.
NOTE: The recommended downforce for the factory fitted cartridge is 3.5g
Set the anti-skating control knob to the same value as the stylus pressure.
Install the turntable lid to the hinges.
Place the turntable on a flat, level surface. To help ensure the turntable is level, the height of the legs can be
