Features

Product specifications

High precision ball bearings in the vertical and horizontal axes guarantee that the tonearm provides the perfect conditions for the cartridge to track the record groove without adding any colouration or distortion. The arm tube is made of carbon, ultra stiff but lightweight, providing maximum stability and perfect tracking. The easy and exact setting of azimuth and VTA are child's play – and with the optional VTA-lifter the adjustment of VTA can be done even while playing a record. The Universal is compatible with almost all popular cartridges, thanks to easily interchangeable counterweights and a fine scale which makes the precise adjustment of Tracking Force elegantly simple.

Available in 9-inch and 12-inch lengths.
