Clearaudio Satisfy Tonearm
The Clearaudio Satisfy Carbon Fiber features high quality handmade Swiss vertical and lateral bearings composed of a pure polished sapphire. It is wired with Clearaudio's Direct Wire in order to provide an unbroken low-resistance signal path from the cartridge pins through the arm tube to the phono-preamplifier. Its precision milled aluminum headshell is mated to a carbon fibre arm tube and allows for accurate cartridge alignment including azimuth adjustment. In addition, the Satisfy CF features an elegant, innovative magnetic anti-skating control and a precision aluminum cuing mechanism. The Satisfy CF uses the Clearaudio/Linn standard mount, making it compatible with all Clearaudio turntables and an ideal replacement tonearm for other brand turntables.

Ratings & Reviews
A very capable tonearm and when matched with a decent cartridge can really impress...it's a shame however that when designing the arm rest, they made it so tight that it permanently marks the arm.
