Souther Linear


The Souther is a classic, high end linear tracking tonearm, now produced by Clearaudio as the Master TQ1.


Arm type: Linear, tangential tracking

Maximum tracking error: 0 degrees

Cueing: Vertical and horizontal

Anti-skate: not required

Cartridge weight range: 1 to 20 grams

Headshell: Integral


The Souther SLA-3 is capable of excellent performance. However, making it produce these results will require a good deal of patient adjusting and readjusting by the user. The SLA-3 is the best of it's type that I have seen - $850 Audio May 1984
