Acos Lustre GST 801
High Precision dynamic balance type tonearm featuring variable magnetic flux stylus force, anti-skating mechanism and high precision radial bearings.
Although the dynamic balance tonearm has been known as one that has an advantageous construction in providing high tracing ability, preventing skating, etc, tone arm designers have tended to underrate it because of problems such as the need for a spring, etc for application of stylus force and resultant increase in mechanical friction resistance.
The GST-801 is the first dynamic balance tone arm that has successfully solved all of these problems by introducing a contactless stylus force application system.
This Lustre's unique variable magnetic flux type stylus force application system is a magnetic contactless system of compact and simple construction using a rare earth magnet.

Built like a fine watch. Fantastic sounding tonearm with very smooth VTA adjustment. Works great with Lustre headshell and light SAEC ones. Today, that level of engineering would cost you big bucks. Worth seeking out on the used market...
