Acoustand ALT-12 12" Tonearm.


Acoustand ALT-12 12" Tonearm.

The acoustand tonearm has been further improved and now comes with SME fit adjustable base as standard, the price reflects these changes and the slight increase in materials costs.

The Acoustand tonearm is a high quality static balanced high effective mass design available in 12 inch and finished to the highest standards using the latest CNC technology and hand finishing and assembly. It is a no fuss easy to operate design incorporating a socket for a removable headshell (Headshell not included) for easy cartridge swaps using the common H4 type socket used by many manufacturers such as SME and Technics. This tonearm uses high quality deep groove bearings for pivotal movement, the main pillar and pillar bearing is Acoustand’s own unique single point bearing. Interconnects are supplied by Van Damme, a super quality OFC cable and fits to the tonearm above the arm panel for easy fitting and to avoid any possible restrictions and to avoid rubbing. There is an adjustable anti skate mechanism, and high quality machined manual arm raiser.

The tonearm utilises a one piece foam damped polished aluminium arm tube.

Mounting pattern uses SME type fitting with adjustable sliding base for ultimate adjustability and precise distance.
