Anti-Skate Device - JMW-9 & JMW-10
For use with JMW-9
You will see three rubber rings on the straight shaft; these are used to set the anti-skating force.
The two rubber rings on the shaft with the grooves are used to set the height of the monofilament. Set the rubber ring on the lowest groove if it is not there already and slip the loop of monofilament over the grooved shaft. Push the second ring down to lock the loop in place on between the first and second groove. Try to keep the monofilament as level as possible but don't go crazy, it is not audible and causes no problem if it is slightly off level.
You can adjust the settings of the mechanism using the 1/16" Allen wrench provided. Adjust it so the arm can travel to the inner grooves of the record without the mechanism pulling it or causing it to skip grooves.
Minimal anti-skate force is needed do just enough to keep the image stabilized and the cantilever centered in the groove.

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!
180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP
These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectables, commanding a higher price.
Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
