The tracking geometry is based on a unique tetragon solution that reduces the tracking-error to 0,006°. Our new TTF-bearing-technology makes sure the performance achieves a level never reached before, as the micro-ball-bearings are arranged in a tension-free setup. The intrinsic frequencies of the two tonearm tubes are carefully tuned to improve on the damping properties of any single arm tube design.

Bearing with five axis and ten micro ball bearing
Fine-adjustment mechanism for VTA and Azimuth
Chrome plated brass-parts
Anodized aluminium-parts (bronze, black or grey)
