Arm tube: stainless steel
Mounting distance: 222mm

Well finished with very good geometry. It was easy to set up and demonstrated low bearing friction. Bias compensation was set to sensible levels and the cue worked well - HiFi Choice 1983

Acos-built arm with pleasant enough sound but easily bettered by the later RB arms. Anti-skate belts crumble with age.

Robust, simple, mid-high mass sounds wonderfully with Denon DL 103, 110 and Koetsu Black. A very good alternative to the well known tonearms.
