The dullest arm I ever use, but logic datum instead much better in every way.

This has to be the worst tonearm I have ever used even on an LP12, dull and lifeless tried several cartridges from Linn Basic to Denon DL110 all sound poor. Even as a starter tonearm this is best avoided.

An acceptable arm to replace a poor stock arm provided you do not pay too much. Good balance but slight resonance in the upper bass / lower midrange. I think lack of rigidity of the tube and mediocre pivot bearings. I replaced the Lenco stock arm by this arm and it is not better, just different and lighter : better for MM cartridge with high compliance.

Others marked this down, but in the Linn range, it is the one for folks who change carts according to the type of record, the sme fit removable shell makes life easier (you can accumulate a few headshells and load them). Decent upgrade with the right vintage look in a thorens 160 etc over the stock fitting. Antiskate usefully adjustable whilst record is playing.
