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.
