Hello,

What is in your opinion the best turntable level? Why?

- Ortofon - High-Precision Spirit Bubble Level

- Clearaudio Precision Bubble Level

- The Cartridge Man Digital Leveling Gauge (expensive)

- VPI Cross Check Turntable Level

- Avid - Level 45

- Other?

Thank you,

Dear Daytona600, than you for your input. I also know a person who is quite happy with the Cartridge Man Gauge.

I wonder what is the second best level, not as expensive as the electronic Cartridge Man Gauge.

I just use a small 3" bubble level. I sit it on the platter and rotate the platter in a circle very slowly. If the bubble stays in the middle all the way round I am good to go.

I had some custom vials made, and build them into the turntables I make. At least, people can remember where they are. :D

Thank you. Sounds like the Ortofon and the Cartridge Man levels are the top choices.

I like the Digi-Pas DWL-80Pro Mini Pocket Size Digital Level Electronic Angle Gauge, on Amazon. It fits into tight spaces better than my ClearAudio bubble level.

I checked it out. Looks interesting. Thanks.
