Practical Guide to Turntable Set-Up DVD With Analog Expert Michael Fremer to Debut at Home Entertainment 2006 Show

Wyckoff, NJ–June 1, 2006–Vinyl guru and analog expert Michael Fremer has taken the confusion out of setting up a turntable with the production of his new DVD entitled “21st Century vinyl: Michael Fremer’s Practical Guide to Turntable Set-up.” Fremer is known globally as Stereophile magazines senior contributing editor and analog expert who offers his experience and knowledge of everything relating to vinyl each month to his loyal fans.

Combining Fremer’s experience, knowledge and sense of humor, this surprisingly entertaining, almost 3 hour-long instructional DVD introduces vinyl enthusiasts to the “lost art” of turntable set-up. Experienced analog fans will also find the disc useful.

Detailed visuals–including close-ups and animated sequences–show how to set up a Pro-Ject RPM-5 a Rega P5 and a VPI Scoutmaster. Every aspect of set-up is shown in “real-time,” including cartridge installation, horizontal and vertical tracking angles, tracking force, anti-skating and azimuth adjustment.

Using the information provided in these three segments, Fremer says any vinyl enthusiast should be able to set-up any turntable and tonearm “ever made.” Animated sequences explain procedures and principles, while a lengthy, informative PDF file in the disc’s DVD-ROM section goes into even greater detail.

Also included is an interview with Sterling Sound mastering engineer George Marino, a “tour” of Sterling’s Neumann cutting lathe and an opening segment called “Why We Love Vinyl,” guaranteed to elicit some laughs.

The $29.99 DVD will be available at HE2006 at the Music Direct, Acoustic Sounds, T.H.E. Music and Stereophile magazine booths. Wider distribution is planned for early summer. Fremer says a PAL version, with translations into various languages, should be ready for worldwide distribution by the fall.
