This tonearm is in excellent cosmetic shape. It is virtually free of any or surface wear along the pipe and metal surfaces at its base. If any surface wear should be present it would be negligible. The end of the queuing lever that controls the arm lifter has faded/ worn on one side.Some surface scuff may be noticed particularly on the counterweight, in the crevasse of the counterweight and scale piece, as well as on the upright that holds the anti-skate weight. However such scuff is barely noticeable. the arm appears to be free of any rust. One thing to mention would be on the bottom side of the threaded assembly that is inserted into the plinth where the the 5 pins are located that connect to the tonearm cable. Two of the gold pins on the connector do not appear perfectly straight, with a slight bend but nothing serious. I did not bother fiddling with it as it is such a minor issue and did not want to risk breaking. Once again, overall the tonearm is in beautiful cosmetic shape!
The Audio Technica cartridge has been tested and appears to be working, producing sound as it should and is in excellent shape. However the needle/stylus appears to be quite worn with little life left as indicated by by the photo in the listing.
The cartridge is a generic one and not the one that originally sold with the tonearm
The tonearm cable seems to not be the original if I am not mistaken, however it is a high quality one that is made by the company Mogami which is a manufacturer of high quality audio cables. The cable is the Mogami Neglex 2505 interconnection cable.
The canceller weight for the anti skate is NOT ORIGINAL and was a part that I had lying around from another tonearm. It weighs around 2.4 grams. not sure what the weight of the original one was, but I guess it does not matter as it depends on the wight of the cartridge, also the canceller post can be adjusted as well as where the weight is seated on the canceller bar allowing to adjust the anti skate force precisely regardless of the mass of the canceller weight.
The tonearm has been mounted and tested on a turntable and seems to function as it should, having used it on my personal turntable and listening to a few records all the way through.
This tonearm is a great and solid performer and made/engineered to high standards. Some reviews as well as manufacturers data and brochure will provide some great info on this piece.
