Analog Porn
« on: May 25, 2018, 02:47:43 AM »
I got this photo last night from Pete Riggle.

Obviously, it's my new tonearm, being shipped next week. This was a MAJOR exercise in patience. I put my deposit down last August. Talk about delayed gratification. But it's a hand built piece of art and state of the art as well so double bonus points.

My plan is to put my vintage Shure V15 VxMR with a new stylus on when I change the arm, because I have to set everything up again anyways so it's a good time to make a change. I've had my Grado sliding for a few years already and I'm ready for a change.

Hello Aural Roberts,
I bought this arm about 2 years ago.  I have a Shelter 501 mkII with a Soundsmith retip.  I used to have an Origin Live RB250.  It was a good tone arm for the money but the String Theory is so much better.

I find everything is better.  But the biggest improvement is soundstage and imaging.  It does these things in a superlative fashion.  Have fun and let us know what you think of the sound.
