find one of these and your questions are gone. has a quality design and delivers all needs (VTA, Azimuth) A great design, and even today serviceable trough audio origami - i think its a better performer with mid to lightweight carts, endless drive and pressure with e.g a ZYX RS20, 30, 50 Cart, blows every CD Machine!

Too little use as yet to give it a 10, but, rewired with Cardas, an extraordinary tonearm when used with my Shelter 501 Mk2 on my Once Analog turntable - tracking is nothing short of mind-blowing and musicality is far beyond my previous arm with the same cartridge (Linn Akito II). Hard to imagine a better sounding arm.
