The Deluxe AcousTech gauge is set apart from the standard version by a full metal casing, AAA battery support, and a deluxe storage case. Includes mini screwdriver and calibration weight.

The AcousTech gauge will accurately read your tracking force within 0.002 grams, the finest reading available. Many imitators only read accuracy of 0.01 grams.

Accurate and simple to use – that's the essence of a great stylus force gauge, and that's what you get with this AcousTech model. We all know, or certainly we all should know, that dialing in your correct tracking force is absolutely essential for optimal record playback. If you miss on the heavy side, your sound becomes thick and sluggish. Miss on the light side, and your cartridge is more likely to mistrack and the sound will be light and anemic.

So stop messing with those mechanical stylus balances that aren't even accurate. This is one case where digital makes more sense when it comes to fine-tuning your analog.

Getting a quick and easy read on stylus force has never been easier. This is well worth the extra bucks.

I previously had a similar, and expensive, guage from another manufacturer. It was very difficult to use with a poor-reading display, hard-to-obtain batteries, etc. This one, by comparison, is reasonably priced, has a good display and uses AAA cells. It is also priced very fairly. It has allowed me to set the V.T.F. on pickup cartridges very accurately. Warmly recommended.

At first looks complicated, however, after you figure out the screw driver is to open the battery compartments, it is very, very easy to use and accurate. Place it on the table, turn it on, it self adjusts to zero, and place stylus on the "dot" (very important as you will get different readings if not on the center of the dot). Fast, easy, and accurate.

I previously used the "sure" mechanical, it this puts the sure at .05 grams too high. So the only consideration is the price difference.
