It is now possible to achieve a level of performance that at least one reviewer did not think was possible from a tonearm upgrade ( and he had one of the best arms in the world). No other arm that we are aware of can offer the level of performance available in the Enterprise. This arm is packed with radical new thinking and technological advances, significantly elevating toneram performance beyond anything that has gone before. Rather than put forward all the technical advantages of the Enterprise, we invite those who want to experience ultimate performance to simply listen. The most obvious aspects of this arm are it's sheer speed and realism that is approaching live music. The tightness and depth of bass is a revelation and will expose you to your records in a totaly new light. We will leave it to the reviews to elaborate on an arm that is capable of everything you could ever want from one of the most important items in the replay chain.

"Overall, this is a superb pick up arm with a grippingly musical sound and lovely rhythmic ability. It has wonderful tonal shading (an SME SeriesV sounds monochrome, by comparison) and deep soundstaging with masses of detail........overall it's an exceptional performer — one which offers a brilliant mix of tonality and rhythmic grip." - HI FI WORLD May 2007
