TNTAudio - G.Husband. I've long admired 12" arms, but they are invariably expensive & need a compatible turntable. Well with this kit you get a 12" arm for a 9" price. The arm reminded me strongly of the Morsiani, so that is very high praise, as I consider the Morsiani can lay claim to the Best Sounding Arm in the World
Chriswhgree - Fantastic, Initial results were excellent-more open & relaxed than many arms-I've owned just about ever one you could think of ? Ittock($3,000), Not/Analogue(2,500), Morch UP4(2,400), Opus 3 Cantus(1,950), Clearaudio Satify($2,350)
calnic - Arm Is fantastic value for money, I can certainly say it blows away my fully modded RB 250. I bought the Wizard getting a massive upgrade
jbblake - Arm sound is unbelievable for the price combo. Huge sound-stage depth & base is tremendously deep, agile and fast.
rmoonknight - I just wanted to say it sounds great. Very smooth & big. Thanks so much for a great, affordable product. It's amazing to me how it sounds better than my Jelco.
Jkcdesign fantastic arm, moving to 12" certainly gives a fantastic fluency to the music, makes you feel as you are actually at the performance, Better than my old SME. Highly recommended.
David Lev - Overall, images seems to be more independent, more like they are floating (in a realistic way) within the sound-stage.The alleged loss of bass slam that many people claim unipivot have, does not seem to occur with this arm.
KWong - Have my Merlin arm hooked up to a modded Lenco 75, Goldring Elite and Pass Pearl 2, all I can say is simply stunning.
