Ortofon TA-210 Tonearm
The TA-210 is given a precision machined slit in each end of the aluminum tube. A piece of Ortofon special vibration damping compound is integrated into each slit: Rubber inserts with high vibration damping properties and Special proprietary TPE compound with excellent damping properties are integrated respectively in the bottom and top slit of the arm tube. Due to these two different materials an extended damping effect is obtained in the largest possible range. Both inserts integrated in the tonearm tube are manufactured at the Ortofon technical facilities in Nakskov, Denmark. TA-210 armtube is a lot less stressed than conventional armtubes due to the Technical rubber and TPE excellent damping properties. TA-210 is the product with great benefits for the discerning analogue user The TA-210 can ideally be combined with MC Windfeld, MC A90, SPU Series and the new Ortofon Xpression. The combination of Xpression, ST-80 SE Moving Coil transformer and TA-210 gives a supreme experience! The new High-end headshell LH-10000, incorporating damping technology similar to the TA-110/210 tonearms, will be a perfect interface between the tonearms and Ortofon Cadenza Series, MC Windfeldt and MC A90.
TA-210 is a static balanced gimbal type arm, easy to use and adjust for optimal VTF settings TA-210 has a standard 5-pin DIN connector for tonearm cable The tonearm geometry allows for a Baerwald alignment (also the IEC recommendations) Counterweight with Inner/outer scale Inner scale to be applied with main counterweight Outer scale to be applied when extra mass ring is added Counterweight will work with headshell+cartridge mass approximately in the range 20 to 28g TA-210 is fitted with a standard headshell connector and can easily be adjusted in accordance with the included mounting template Extra mass ring for heavier cartridge and headshell combinations included (the extra mass ring may need to be attached to achieve proper tracking force) Extra mass ring weight 45g

I have a TA-210 partnered with a Merrill WIlliams 101.2 turntable and an Ortofon Cadenza Black Cartridge. Arm is as neutral as you'll find and also gives you the ability to experiment with Ortofon SPUs which is tremendous fun.....
