The vinyl renaissance

Anybody who hasn't been living under a rock is well aware that vinyl is going through a renaissance . The major stumbling block to joining the fun is that many people have no idea how to properly set up a turntable. The abysmal documentation included with nearly all turntables isn't making the situation any better. Most manufacturers assume that whoever is assembling their turntable has previous experience, and thus takes a certain level of knowledge for granted.

Planet of Sound, a Canadian Hi-Fi store has made a short video explaining how to set up Project's extremely affordable Debut III.

When purchasing a new turntable a good dealer should offer to set it up for a nominal cost, if not for free. Watching how it's done and asking a few questions is never a bad idea.
