TRI-PLANAR

 


 

 

The result of years of research and design, the Tri-Planars' unique dual-pivot design offers maximum adjustability and watch-like precision:

1. Adjustable azimuth
2. Adjustable vertical tracking angle
3. Vertical bearing at record height

A design which completely addresses all three planes of tonearm geometry.

 

 
 

The Tri-Planar flagship tonearm is the Mk. VII, commonly referred to as the Tri-Planar Precision Tonearm,
The arm creates a musical sound stage matched by very few tone arms. It has been described as powerful and dynamic, solid yet expressive, delicate and tactile. The outstanding quality of this arm, commented on time and again, is that it is invisible, lacking the colorations that plague so many of our competitors.

After over 30 years in the industry, the Tri-Planar continues to be rated among the worlds best.

 

 


 

Features

• Damped headshell
• Annealed-aluminum coaxial damped armtube

• Silicone-fluid trough tonearm damping
• Bearings featuring hand-crafted, hardened and polished needle cones
• Progressive anti-skating design
• Sophisticated system of decoupled counterweights, allowing proper stylus force for any cartridge without altering effective mass
