Introduction

The result of years of research and design, the Tri-Planars' unique dual-pivot design offers maximum adjustability and watch-like precision. 

1. Adjustable azimuth
2. Adjustable vertical tracking angle
3. Vertical bearing at record height 


A design which completely addresses all three planes of tonearm geometry.

The arm creates a musical sound stage unmatched by any other. It has been described as powerful and dynamic, solid yet expressive, delicate and tactile. The outstanding quality of this arm, commented on time and again, is that it is invisible, lacking the colorations that plague so many of our competitors.
