So similar to the HR1000S that there shouldn't be the significant price difference that exists. Pure titatinium arm. Best for moving coil cartridges that need a high compliance arm. Perfect for the application. Only rated a 9 because of the HR1000S

Hi-Fi Choice 1983-1986:-
'On audition, it proved hard at first to separate this model from the well rated HR100S. The Xenon showed a solid overall control with firm sense of image focus over a wide frequency range'
'with a high standard of engineering, a basically good finish and fine lab performance, the Xenon comes strongly recommended'
