ClearAudio Ultimate U12 Tonearm


Product Description

Our pricing for this product is the "MAP Pricing."  This means that the prices shown here are the "minimum advertised prices" permitted by the manufacturer.

Manufacturer's Description:

Tri-Planar's first new tonearm design in over 40 years, the Tri-Planar U12 tonearm offers improved resolution, detail, dynamic range and provides a 27% angular error reduction over similar 9″ tonearms (17% over 10" tonearms).  The 12" U12 has the same effective mass as the 9" and 10" versions of the tonearm, making it a drop-in replacement for those 'arms and the cartridges used with them.

Gimbal bearing design which enables the bearing to be positioned at record height

Structural components are hand-polished and rounded to control resonance
