Tapping in to the vast CAM collective once again if I may. I have acquired a nice NOS Jelco LAD370D from an esteemed member, and will be mounting it on my modded TD-160 mkll. I have the beautiful cherry wood plinth installed, now the arm upgrade is next (the LVX is quite good on the table, but I believe an improvement will be realized with the oil damped 370). I've always been a Jelco fan, having had both the SA-250 and an SA-750 over the years, both very nice tonearms. In any event, I need an arm board. The LAD370D is a Jelco 9" S shaped arm that shares the same geometry as the 250 and 750, however the base has a different bolt pattern (it's not the same as the SA-370H - the H is a 9.4" arm).

I've put a Wanted ad on CAM last night for the above (long shot I know), but can you advise on who could produce this arm board locally (as in Canada)? I've tried Soundsupports overseas a few times, but can't get a response. I've also inquired with Vinyl Nirvana earlier today, and hopefully will hear back tomorrow. But, it would be nice to work with someone in Canada if possible. Many Thanks.

Hi Chris,

Looks like Vinyl Nirvana gets their armboards from Soundsupports.

Good Luck and Happy Listening
John

Thanks John, good lead. I'll try Soundsupports again too.
