Description

Why Reference Tonearm?

    • The unique Vertical & Horizontal pivoting motion is provided by non-rotating polymer-metal laminate films. The result is the first truly ‘noiseless’ and stiction-free tonearm bearing.
    • The main counterweight is articulated in the vertical and horizontal planes through precision ball race bearings. To ensure proper tracking even on warped records.
    • For ideal rigidity, the arm tube & head shell are machined from solid titanium then fuse welded to form a homogenous component.
    • For ideal rigidity, the arm tube & head shell are machined from solid titanium then fuse welded to form a homogenous component.
    • Horizontal & Vertical bearings are offset by 23mm to optimise tracking accuracy and information retrieval.
    • Anti-skate force is applied using microns thick non-resonant, frictionless silicone polymer strip.
    • Unique Transit Clamping System which allows secure transportation keeping the arm/cartridge safe and perfectly setup. This ensures exact performance after shipment and reinstallation. The use of the clamp also assists with mounting the cartridge safely and precisely.
    • Custom built lift/lower mechanism, precision engineered to ensure smooth, firm & accurate cueing.
