Graham Phantom II

 

 

Introduction

 

Excel Stereo strives to bring you the best of high end analog products.   Introducing the Graham Engineering Phantom II B-44 Tonearm

The Phantom II represents the culmination of refinements resulting from years of research into design theory, materials analysis and repeated testing.   This involved not only testing of the individual design components as they were being evaluated, but also comparing the several prototype models against our own Model 2.2 and the available competition.

 

Features:

 

Graham Phantom II has the ability to perform fine repeatable adjustments on ALL analog Parameters:

 

  • Magneglide (TM) adjustable system - With this unique, patented system, all lateral stability, and a portion of the damping, is provided by powerful neodymium ("rare-earth") magnets, placed in a horizontal line from the pivot point of the tonearm.   Working as an adjustable system, Magneglide (TM) provides the following six benefits: increased lateral stability, easy azimuth adjustability, a higher intertial lateral component for improved bass reproduction,  augmentation of system damping,  true vertical pivoting of the stylus tip with no rotation as the arm is raised, and easily adjusted anti-skate compensation. 
     

          

 

  • VTA Adjustment on the fly

  • Removable Titanium Armwand, available in 9", 10" and 12".    The arm tube of the Series II tonearm is removable for quick changing of phono cartridges, and features Grahamís patented alignment system.  The removable arm tube also facilitates the off-turntable mounting of phono cartridges.

  • The Graham Phantom II B-44 is available in three effective lengths, with a choice of two mounting systems, and  two finish choices.  Replacement arm wands, tonearm cables, and a factory upgrade option of existing Series I Phantoms to full Series II are also available.
