You’re looking at the world’s best-designed tonearm.
This is a Dual tonearm. It can make a big difference in the way your records sound. And how long they last.
The four point gyroscopic gimbal is widely acknowledged to be the finest suspension system for a tonearm. It pivots the tonearm precisely where the vertical and horizontal axes intersect. The arm remains perfectly balance in all planes of movement.
Further, the straight line tubular design achieves the shortest distance between pivot and stylus. That’s basic geometry. Curving the tonearm adds mass, decreases rigidity and makes the arm prone to lateral imbalance.
The vernier counterbalance permits you to balance the tonearm with micrometer like precision. Tracking force is applied so that the stylus remains perpendicular to the record, even if the chassis is not level.
All this serves to establish and maintain the correct cartridge to groove relationship. So the stylus can trace the rapidly changing undulations of the groove walls freely, precisely and with the lowest practical force. In short, flawless tracking.
