Internal constrained layer damps minute residual vibrations making the tone-arm acoustically inert.
Unique headshell to tone-arm coupling readily allows cartridge azimuth adjustment. The Anti-Skate control operates through an Anti-Skate weight and filament and is adjustable for up to 5g of cartridge vertical tracking force (VTF). The lowering/raising control gives a smooth positive action and allows for the lifting height of the cartridge above the record to be adjusted. Tungsten-alloy balance weight inserts allow for 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 is applied in 0.5 increments via the rider weight and graduated wayrod. Thumbwheel cartridge vertical tracking angle (VTA), height adjustment. Bedplate affords +/- 12.0mm movement to facilitate horizontal tracking angle (HTA) adjustment.
