Thanks for the response...Unfortunately, the system will not permit me to email other users...I've emailed the Webmaster; hopefully my "full member" status can be expedited...Any other suggestions in the interim?

My thanks to NetList...The email system does indeed work now...

But it seems the Fates are against me...MosFet, the other user with a Sansui XR-Q7 turntable (and hopefully an Owner's Manual) has turned off email reception...Is there any other way I can reach him?

Sorry, I don't have the original owner's manual for the XR-Q7. What is it you want to know? They are similar to other top-end Denon and JVC turntables in operation - I also own a JVC QL-Y3F which is almost identical in operation, and looks very smilar.

Thanks for the reply...I do have a service manual, but other than "Lead-in Position" it deals only with internal adjustments...My immediate question is "How do I adjust the arm VTA?"...Your assistance would be greatly appreciated...By the way, I still hope to find an Owner's Manual...

Thanks again

The VTA is adjusted by raising and lowering the rear of the tonearm. This is achieved by turning a small knurled screw on the right hand side of the tonearm base to unlock it, and then pulling up or pushing down on the tonearm at the pivot point. The knurled screw is just to the rear of the black knob for setting anti-skating (see the attached picture). Clamp the tonearm to its rest before you start. Turn the knurled screw anti-clockwise to unlock the height setting adjustment. After setting the height of the tonearm, turn the knurled screw clockwise to lock the setting. The idea is to make the tonearm roughly parallel to the surface of the record. After that, it can only really be set by ear, apparently. However, it's really only a happy compromise, because records vary slightly in thickness.



I wouldn't hold too much hope of finding a manual - the XR-Q7 seems to be pretty rare, and they seem to be offered for sale on Ebay very rarely. If I had an owner's manual, I'd be happy to copy it for you, but I'm in the same boat as you, unfortunately.
