Weird - the last several arm ID questions have all been the same arm. I would assume that you might look around a bit before asking, but apparently I'm wrong. It does seem like Syntec/Sparta sold a ton of these arms.

It seems to be the tonarm of a Rotel RP-900 or RP-1500.

Hi, anybody knows what Tonearm this could be? It's fitted on a Systemdek IIX.

A nice arm, but rare. They cost £295 back in 1991 when an RB300 would have set you back just £139. Most owners went with the far cheaper Systemdek arm or an entry level RB250.

Thanks for the info @JaS! I am offered to buy this turntable from a friend. It is fitted with a Audio Technica OC07 MC cartridge. Anybody knows what would be a good replacement?

Hi all!

I found this old Jelco tonearm, but I cannot figure out what the model is. Does anyone know?
Hello.

That seems to be be a DSC-Jelco SA-100. I think, that it should have a badge at the back of the counterweight with the model designation. We had the same model on page four in this thread.

Thanks themisto462,

You're right! I never thought to look at the back of the counter-weight! The interesting thing is that this one just says Jelco Model SA-100 (not DSC-Jelco).

Weird thing about it is that the guy selling it says it has a SME headshell.. on the pictures it seems like a fixed headshell but this is definatly is no SME arm... weird

Would love to hear your thoughts!
