The THALES STATEMENT TONEARM confirms again the unchallenged reference status of analogue music reproduction. It proves experience, thorough reflection, and careful craftwork to be able to achieve considerable progress in sound quality with this 130-year-old technology even today. In order to surpass their in-house reference products they had to combine tried and tested solutions with completely fresh approaches.
Based on tetragon geometry, reducing the tracking error to a maximum of 0.006°, the THALES STATEMENT combines perfect tracking geometry with optimized mechanical energy derivation.
The THALES STATEMENT TONEARM comes with an integrated mechanism and a scale for fine adjustment of VTA and azimuth, allowing precise angular alignment of the cartridge. The support of the tonearm lift, coupled directly with its lever, works by a high reduction ratio so that the needle may be lowered in a perfectly controlled manner.
Options for tonearm wiring are either an integrated 5-pin-DIN-connector or direct wiring to the amplifier. Five different counterweights allow the use of cartridges weighing 7 to 20 grams.
