The Ariston Magnus Opus is a UK manufactured version of the budget Japanese Opus tonearm.

The Magnum Opus sound quality attained a good standard, sufficient for some modest moving coil cartridges, Moreover, it made for a worthwhile combination with the RD80 player, and recommendation is clearly in order - £80 HFC 1984
