Transcribe Transcription Tonearm


New product

Balance, resonance, friction and the tangential relationship of the stylus to the groove are the fundamental factors that must be considered when evaluating a tonearm. The 13" Transcribe Transcription Arm excels in each of these areas, making it the ideal choice for archives, audiophiles and sound engineers.

Quality gimbal assembly incorporates four sets of steel ball bearings which provide free vertical and lateral motion; aluminum and steel machined parts assure rigidity and precision of alignment. Adjustments are provided for arm height, cartridge azimuth, cueing arm position, tracking force, balance and anti-skating force. Connection is accomplished via a plug-in, 5-pin right-angle cable harness. It is also equipped with a gentle, dampened cueing lever.

The Transcribe Arm is significantly longer than conventional tonearms, resulting in less tracking error. This enables even 16" radio transcriptions to be played back properly! Internal damping reduces minute vibrations, and the decoupled counterweight acts as an energy terminator. The dual stainless steel pin magnesium headshell provides rigid coupling, but is easily removed.

If you wish to purchase a Transcribe Arm with the CVS-14 turntable, we will mount the tonearm for no additional installation charge!
