About Linn Tonearm
Even though it was one of the first musical devices with the ability to play recorded music, the phonograph is still commonly used; although, parts such as a Linn tonearm are much more high-tech now. The tonearm seems like a basic device because all it does is hold a stylus over the cartridge groove. However, a quality arm must move with zero resistance so that it can follow the grooves. It must also be lightweight and stiff so that it does not oscillate or vibrate and distort the music. Additionally, the arm has to keep the needle in place without applying too much pressure and scratching the record. A Linn tonearm is made with quality materials, like titanium, designed to minimise interference, scratching, and skipping. Low-friction bearings also allow the arm to move effortlessly through the tracks. Arms like the Ekos SE are built for particular phonographs, such as the LP12 turntable, so find the arm that is compatible with your device on eBay. Can you hear the music already?
