Get the Most Accurate Speed Reading from Your Turntable
Proper turntable alignment is critical to getting the most from your LPs, speed stability is an essential part of any turntable setup. Every aspect of a turntable's performance is affected by speed; bass, midrange and treble, tonal balance, even imaging can be affected by incorrect speed.
The Speed Strobe Test LP is half of the very popular Clearaudio Speed Strobe Kit.
Clearaudio’s Speed Strobe Test LP, formerly known as the Strobodisc, is an LP which when used with Clearaudio's Speed Strobe Light, allows the user to very accurately tune the speed of a turntable.
“[Clearaudio's Speed Strobe Kit], a two-sided white strobe
disc, with markings for calibrating both 33 and 45 speeds, as well as a
special groove that allows you to break in a cartridge. Shine the [Speed
Strobe Light's] little blue light on the disc, and, voila, speed can
easily be calibrated. The Clearaudio Speed Test Disc and Speed Laser
have become part of our reference accessories list. And much welcomed!”

The Clearaudio Speed Strobe LP is unique in that it is the first test disc we are aware of that allows the user to account for stylus drag when calibrating speed. The Speed Strobe LP features a unique groove which allows the strobe disc to be played just like a regular LP, allowing the drag of the stylus to finally be taken into account. As an added bonus, the drag groove is perfect for breaking in new cartridges!
