Mayware Formula V
Professional Laboratory Variable Mass Silicone-Damped Pick-up Arm
The Formula V was developed from our highly acclaimed mkIV model with the following important improvements: better engineering with much more rigid structure, damped arm pipe, optimised larger damping capacity, more viscous silicone fluid and a lockable cursor.
A damped unipivot arm such as the Formula V gives a much more natural open sound with no listening fatigue compared to a gimbal arm and also has the very important advantage of less record wear due to the suppression of instantaneous tracking force extremes caused by record warps.
A gimbal arm is only required for MC type cartridges having excessive vibrational energy eg Koetsu, Supex, Linn etc which give a personal romantic type sound beloved by the synthetic gurus of the press.
