I am selling my Kuzma turntable + tonearm (this is the 12” version, which I very much prefer to the regular 9”) rig since I am taking a different direction with my sound system.
These items are less than 2 years old. They were stored in their box for most of these 2 years. Basically like new.
I am the first owner, I have the boxes, documentation etc. Both the tonearm and the table were purchased from an authorized dealer in Montreal.
Don't hesitate to be in touch with questions.
------------- From the manufacturer website:
Its unique shape and construction of solid brass rods provides an extremely rigid connection to platter, bearing and tonearm support. There is no flat plate to resonate and transmit vibrations, only solid brass rods 50 mm in diameter.
These two brass rods provide stability, and are clamped together in a T- shape. The motor is housed independently in its own tower, which dampens vibration of the motor itself.
A precision-ground flat belt provides drive from the motor pulley to the sub-platter. The bearing is made from highly polished, fine grain carbon steel with a one point contact, while the bearing sleeve is of a resin/textile material which has excellent damping, non resonant properties.
The rigid headshell is made from a solid aluminum block and a base of solid brass, which control all vibration and facilitate stability of the tonearm as a whole. All parts of the arm are machined from blocks of solid metal, in order to provide damping and minimize resonance. The polished pivot point is sited in an oil well, which provides extremely low friction and bearing vibrations. The height is at record level for optimum tracking.
The silicone damping, controls resonance of the cartridge and also gives stability in azimuth direction. Three counterweights allow easy adjustments of tracking force and azimuth.
Fine azimuth adjustment is achieved by rotation of a horizontal screw in the counterweight, which does not affect other tonearm parameters and which makes adjustment very simple. Wires are in one uninterrupted piece from headshell to RCA or XLR connectors.
