Internal constrained layer damps minute residual vibrations making tone-arm acoustically inert.
Anti-skate control operates through Anti-Skate weight and filament, adjustable up to 5g VTF. Lowering/raising control gives smooth positive action. Height of lift can be adjusted. Thumbwheel (Vertical tracking angle VTA) height adjustment. Bedplate affords +/- 12.0mm movement to facilitate (Horizontal tracking angle HTA) adjustment. Base slides on bedplate for horizontal tracking adjustment with double null-point protractor. Tungsten-alloy balance weight inserts allow maximum centre of gravity shift to balance a greater range of cartridges up to 38g in S2-R headshell and direct plug-in heads up to 46g. Precise vertical tracking force up to 5g applied in 0,5g increments via rider weight and graduated wayrod.
