Viscous Damped Transcription Tonearm

Gray Research 108


The Gray 108 transcription arms incorporate a radical advance in suspension principle.

A silicone damping fluid is placed at the interface between a ball and socket.

An adjustable cone-point pivot screw allows the degree of damping to be readily controlled, and at the same time provides practical freedom from static friction with arm movement.

Damping virtually eliminates troublesome low-frequency resonance which frequently causes groove hopping and distortion on loud passages.

With low vertical stylus forces, accidental jarring of the turntable seldom causes groove jumping.

Vertical damping also prevents damage to record and stylus due to accidental dropping of the arm and improves the tracking of warped records.
