12", 10.in and 9.5" arms

On paper, 12" arms offer a 30% reduction in distortion compared to a 9in" arm. We have been 'converted' to 12" arms, because while the essential tonality is the same there is an increase in musical detail and image depth.

Our new 10.3" arm is a great way of having 2/3 of the benefits of the 12in arms in a more compact package. It is designed explicitly to be the longest arm you can fit on a Linn LP12 or Technics SL1200 family turntable (or similar compact turntables). Special mounting kits are available to make this even easier.

The Wand Classic

The original model of The Wand. This arm is pared back to offer maximum musical bang for buck. It doesn't have a mechanical arm lifter and uses a different mounting but it sounds great!
