The Zeta can be recommended as one of the worlds finest tonearms. It is well made and finished, and while the price is undoubtedly high you do get a lot of precision engineering for your money - Zeta VdH £549 HiFi Answers 1986

A UK built, front rank audiophile product. It's construction quality, finish and sound are all first rate and would satisfy the most discerning of purchasers - £399 HiFi Choice 1983

Of all the exotic arms, the Zeta for us is the best made and most competent. The Ittok is still better on sound, but the Zeta should not be dismissed - £399 The Flat Response 1984
