Begs the question why from the tonearm stand point :p, though all that mass must have some kind of benefit. Interesting head shell.



Would look awesome in a mid-century home :king:

If I had that rig, I would be worrying about air currents and floor flex. Happily, I have a Sony linear tracker.

What is that, aluminum? Why?

Carbon is where it’s at! That thing will be heavy and flexy. Long is good for a tonearm to reduce tracking distortion. But you will have an effective mass of... STUPID with that rig. Maybe if the arm was filled with helium...

I can make it work, but I’ll need $750,000.00 six months and a case of PBRs.

Just get a pterodactyl like the Flintstones. That does look a little obscene.

My plan is to set it at a downward slope to reduce the effect of gravity on the massive arm. Then make it from triple butted magnesium with a helium fill.

You should see the dust cover! We call it the “dog house”!
