That's a nice table. Is the cartridge mounted? Or is that the help you're looking for?

Quite honestly then your "setup" consists in making sure it is perfectly level. That's it!
You might want to get a stylus force gauge, just to check and be sure that didn't shift in moving it. I would assume the previous owner set that along with VTA and everything else when mounting the cartridge. Most guys get close on VTA and call it good. You being new, that is definitely what you will do.
Everything else beyond this and the sky is the limit. You can get help with the rack, the shelf, you can put it on a Townshend Platform. You can put it on a sand box. You can build a whole separate room for it. You can tweak it with PHT, ECT, fO.Q tape, on and on. There literally is no end to it.
But as far as "setup" goes, don't make it harder than it has to be. It is level, you are done. Enjoy!
Thanks all for the advice-
Over the last day i have got the table sounding really nice-
it actually came to me setup but the first record i played i just picked one out of the nice collection that the seller gifted to me and the reason i could not get it to sound right was bc i did not realize it was a 45 edition of Dire straights Brothers in Arms and table set to 33-i sweat i am not that air headed but go figure the one record i choose to test the table is the rare 45 in this collection
once i figured out my error and the correct belt spindle groove the table was off and running-
Glad to be sitting back and enjoying some fine Vinyl this Easter Weekend
