Top of the line high end tonearms

The next generation in 9, 10 and 12 inch

The tonearm is one of the most important parts of a turntable and therefore not only influences, but also shapes the sound in a specific way. We did in-depth listening tests with different bearing types, tonearm materials and also cartridge combinations to develop the sound we are looking for.

What you need to know

The new Premium EVO tonearm uses an inverted cardanic Swiss ABEC 7 quality bearing with 4 stainless steel tips. This bearing type is very stable and low friction, which guarantees a clear tracking. This results in a detailed and open sound stage. All the microinformation from the groove is preserved. The bearing sits in a heavyweight stainless steel housing, which provides the needed stability. The massive outside ring is open to avoid resonances.

For the EVO Premium AS tonearm, we use a special aluminium s-shape tube with the highest internal damping, paired with a SME headshell. The s-shaped tonearm is not only an eye-catcher on every turntable, it also brings technical advantages. The arm benefits from much less groove angle distortion and an excellent tracking ability. The SME headshell allows you to quickly change your cartridges. We also offer headshells made of different materials to find the perfect fit for your cartridge. The arm tube is fixed by a single screw to allow rotation for an easy azimuth adjustment.

The inner wiring is made of matched crystal silver to preserve every musical detail of the signal. Also the cartridge connector leads are made of matched crystal silver. Each lead is fitted with a gold-plated connector clip.

The tonearm height can be continuously adjusted by loosening the two grub screws. It gives you the option of adapting the tonearm to height changes to always achieve the best sound quality. Setting and experimenting with the VTA & Azimuth is crucial in extracting every last bit of performance out of your cartridges.
