avid altus tonearm

AVID ALTUS turntable tonearm,

The newly developed tonearms means that AVIDHIFI can now provide a fully analogue front end - turntable, arm, cartridge, and phono stage. The ALTUS is an ideal partner for their more VOLVERE and SEQUEL turntables.

AVIDHIFI's tonearms have been developed using the same criteria as their other high class components - the reduction of vibration being of paramount importance. Therefore, you'll see no weight-saving holes or tin foil arm tubes - rigidity is the name of the game, and you can't achieve that by saving weight or material costs.

AVIDHIFI at the little audio company,

As a tonearm nears the centre of the record, the forces acting upon it (trying to push it outwards) increase, causing distortion. A conventional bias system doesn't address this, but AVIDHIFI's tonearms use a mechanism which increases its force gradually as the arm nears the centre of the record, maintaining a more consistent sound quality across the whole side of the record.
