Stereo wired tonearm, as fitted to the Empire 598 and 598 mk2 Troubador turntable systems.
The Empire 990 pick-up arm is fully stereo balanced, to the front as well as the rear of pivots.
Stylus force of 0-4g can be dialled in with a calibrated clock mainspring, more accurate then any commercially available stylus pressure gauge.
The Dyna-lift automatically lifts the arm off the record at the end of the music.
Vernier calibrated anti-skating adjustments can be set exactly to match any operating stylus force for conical or elliptical styli, eliminating uneven record wear.
Cartridges can be instantly demounted and interchanged.
The inline stylus to pivot axis means no warp-wow or cosine error distortion.
The 990 has the lowest fundamental resonance of any arm, an inaudible 6 Hz.
Finally the dead centre cueing control floats the arm up or down from the record surface, bathed in light to pick out the exact selection you want.
