This is one of the best sounding tonearms I've had in my home theater system. It's easily the best and closest to the orignal master tapes I've heard in my many years with highend audio gear. The mid range and highly detailed rock solid bass was the best I've heard from a vinyl play back using a Benz-Micro LP-S-MR and my fine tuned Manley Steelhead RC tubed phonostage. The fine detail and very high toleranced design of mechanical parts/bearings is +/-.0001" typical. Fit and finish are excellent in this arm designed by Herb Papier and Tri Mai. The VTA adjustments are dynamic and help make line contact stylus designed MC/MM very straight forward, fine tuning is wonderful with this arm and make a tweekers dream come true. This great arm is complete and 10/10 mint condition (one year old). The original box, tools, templates, extra weights, and manual are complete. Cable is Cardas highest quality one piece from cartridge to RCA connectors and ground. This ia a fabulous performing arm worthy of any MC cartridge on the market. This is one arm where beauty is more than skin deep!
