This newly developed S-shaped tonearm is a sophisticated performer, simple to set up and beautifully built. The statically balanced TK-850 features an extremely low-friction, precision-crafted knife edge bearing together with a detachable headshell. Finished in black and silver with polished alloy arm tube.
In most parts of the world detachable headshell arms are considered to be very good, this one certainly is. You could install a £3,000 cartridge on it without any problems or for the die-hard enthusiast have a different cartridge on a selection of headshells.
Supplied without a tonearm cable. All other fitting accessories and templates are included. Designed and manufactured in Japan.
