BRINKMANN Tonearm 10.5
The »10.5« is considered one of the best tonearms in the world and is used as a reference (and highly recommended) by magazines and reviewers alike throughout the world. The »10.5« is a true allaround tonearm. With a dynamic mass of 12 grams, it works well with any modern cartridge; and with 10.5'' length, it is still short enough for most turntables designed for 9-inch arms, yet also long enough for 12-inch arm bases. For optimum resonance control and high torsional stability, the »10.5« is made from aluminum and stainless steel; a high tech synthetic material is also used. For the same reasons, the headshell is nondetachable and the surface of the arm tube has also been treated with special anodizing. A double gimballed suspension, with precision ball bearings free of play, ensures precise and frictionless tracking. The vertical downforce and the dynamic mass can be adjusted over a wide range thanks to the split collar counterweight. Skating is compensated for without any contact by magnetic force. (Too bad you actually will hardly ever notice any of these efforts. Because simply put, the better a tone arm works, the more you'll hear what has been cut into the vinyl: music!)
The »10.5« features an infinitely variable Azimuth adjustment. A small clamping screw from under the arm tube holds the headshell in position. The headshell can be rotated by about ± 5° after untightening this screw. A precision-made plastic part mounted instead of the cartridge allows for aligning the headshell parallel to the platter or record surface. This plastic part has the same height like our EMT-ti cartridge and allows additionally for alignment of the arm height. If a cartridge has some deviation in azimuth, adjustment can be done by rotating the headshell in the desired direction to set the stylus of your cartridge vertical to the record surface.
