Superb arm ceramic bearings titanium arm tube silver wiring and fantastic sound and bar the SME V the best built tonearm what more could you want.

There’s something really right about this arm and works very well with my Zyx Fuji on my Dais turntable.

Purchased mine on a used LP12 10 years ago, a few years ago it had a rewire and check with J7 at Audio Origami, since I have added a DV D17D3 , the combination is fantastic, very holographic, the HR100 is a little bass light. I reckon I would have to spend a serious amount of money to better it. Rather spend the money on vinyl:)

I paired mine up with a Pink Triangle and a very nice Grado handbuilt cartridge, exceptional!

best sound for moving magnets

Not liked at all, silver wire makes the mid and top sound very brittle and unpleasant. Get it rewired with good copper wire and sound does improve somewhat. For me not a keeper. Posted 2015

This is the second one of these I've owned. I have had Ittok, Zeta, SME's - if you want holographic mids then get one!

Had a new one in the 80's cost £280 on a Systemdek 1V, nice arm but no match for the bigger SME'S that followed, a real stunning looking arm though, very stylish.
