This Pro-Ject Signature 12 unipivot tonearm comes fitted as standard on Signature vinyl turntables. It is available in three formats: 9, 10 and 12 inches. It uses a cardan system with a needle bearing which significantly reduces friction. This tonearm does not allow for lateral rolling, unlike traditional unipivot models.
The ingenious counterweight balances phono cartridges between 5-25 g (excluding headshell). You can mount true heavy weight Hi-Fi cartridges depending on the headshell you use! (up to 37 g with the Alu, 39 g with the Carbon and 41 g with the Wood) these two last models are optional. They all offer a different sound and enable tonearm effective weight adjustment. It also directly supports Ortofon SPU cartridges.
VTA is also very simple to adjust without using any tool. You can use a precise thumb wheel to make the assembly go up or down. It also comes fitted with a hydraulic tonearm lifter. The cable is connected via a phono 5-pin Din. It is delivered in full, in a beautiful wooden shrine.
This tonearm boasts remarkable build quality and versatility. It is proof that Pro-Ject’s expertise does not end with record players!
Highly recommended... Franck
