The return of a classic. The predecessor of this arm sold hundreds and has almost achieved cult status. In response to demand, a redesigned MK II version has now been released.
The modifications to the MK I are concentrated on the total redesign of the base unit for the tone arm. With high-gloss nickel finish and improved lift plus anti-skating mechanism and a lifting base that can be adjusted in two planes, it makes the comfort of operation and the reliability much better than ever before.
The principle of a unipivot bearing and tried-and-trusted features such as the single-piece tone arm made of laser-cut sheet aluminium folded into a U-shaped profile with optional black or white powder coating, the nitrogen hardened and polished unipivot bearing for minimum friction and the standardised cabling running right through to the cinch plugs remain nevertheless as unparalleled as ever. Azimuth adjustment, lateral balance and anti-skating are built-in components of the arm.
What has not changed is of course the excellent sound and the unbeatable price for an arm of this quality.
The Classic MK II is available in two versions:. a 10-inch version with a pivot-to-spindle separation of 227 mm (effective mass 11 grams) and a 12-inch version with a pivot-to-spindle separation of 293 mm (effective mass 14 grams).
The 12-inch version of the arm is as ever the perfect partner for the Denon DL-103. A well-kept secret!
