Yamaha Straight Tonearm


An exciting addition to Yamaha's long list of audio innovations, the Yamaha straight tonearm offers a number of improvements in phono reproduction quality.

Unlike other tonearms of similar design, however, the Yamaha tonearm does not have to be used with a specific type of cartridge to get optimum performance.

Since your choice of a cartridge is generally a matter of personal taste (and budget), Yamaha engineers were careful to make sure that this revolutionary tonearm will give you the stunning performance it was designed for with virtually any available cartridge.

The key word is versatility. Of course, the straight tonearm also features Yamaha's first-class craftsmanship using the highest quality materials so you enjoy long-lasting, top-precision performance.
