Your arm does have VTA adjustment. There is a set screw on the right hand side, facing the turntable, of the arm, loosen it and the arm can be moved freely up or down. Tighten it and it will stay in place. What you are referring to is that Sumiko sold a base that allowed the VTA to be continuously adjusted, by turning a screw the arm would move up and down. This is a lot easier than releasing a screw and having the arm free to drop. To make it easier I use a deck of cards. If I need more height I add a few and then release the screw and bring the pivot point up to that height. If you need to lower the arm a bit, just remove some cards and loosen the screw.
