What happens when you reduce the tracking to within Ortofon's recommended range, according to the digital scales?

I haven't used the built in stuff on tonearms for years.
I have a couple of stylus balances (cheap and cheerful Ortofon, and a Shure SFG-2), and now a digital readout job from Ebay, and I'd trust what any one of them tells me before I'd trust the calibration marks on a tonearm.
The only tonearm manufacturer's markings I'd trust are the one's on SME arms - the old man was a stickler for things actually working as defined.

Excellent advice Chris. FWIW I rewired a 3009 S2 improved recently and was impressed to find one full turn in either direction was + or - 0.5g.


Open mind and ears, whilst owning GSP Genera, Accession, Elevator EXP, Solo ULDE, Proprius amps, Cusat50 cables, Lautus digital cable, Spatia cables and links, and a Majestic DAC.
