SKU: JA-TECNOARM
The Tecno Arm “A” is a fundamental mechanical rebuild of the well-known RB250 tonearm, to which is added monolithic wiring of the highest quality. The arm tube is bead-blasted and perforated, which disperses structural resonances and yields a lower effective mass. The arm wand is internally damped to reduce resonance further, and the headshell is machined flat, to allow true azimuth relative to the bearing cradle. After modification the bearings are re-adjusted for highest possible performance, according to original Rega procedures.
Features:
  • One-piece perforated arm casting with internal foam damping
  • Proprietary silver litz cable in a continuous run from cartridge to amplifier
  • PTFE dielectric, metal braided shielding, separate ground wire
  • Silver-plated cartridge clips and phono plugs
  • Two counterweights, matching cartridges of 4-7g and 7-13g
  • Vertical tracking force adjuster in steps of 0.1g
  • Vertical tracking angle adjuster
  • Finger locknut for easy arm removal or VTA adjustment
  • One year warranty

    This tonearm is an exceptional performer with an outstanding build quality. Undoubtedly one of the best tone arms in this price range. Love it.

    I have been very satisfied with this product. I own a gyro se and it is a great match, I found no other arms a this price point with vta adjustability , if you are carful, on the fly. Perfect for getting it sounding perfectly right on an individual record, because I run modern tip shapes, very sensitive to VTA. I had read that this is the last design personally done by Mr. Mitchell , who also did the gyro table. I read he designed the gyro using the SME arm, so having the same guy voice this arm to the table helped my purchase decision. I consider this arm a quality knock off of the SME V arm, since it probably sounds as close to one in action as Mr. Michell could manage at a lower price. Very easy to use , I like the feature of no breaks or connections in the wire from cart to end plugs.

    I have owned this tonearm for a few years now, and I am very impressed with its tracking. I use a Sumiko EVO III cartridge and the arm lets all the brilliance out while being respectful to the media.
