The Clearaudio Magnify tonearm delivers the world's first 'hybrid' bearing design. It combines a high quality ball race bearing for vertical movement, with a brand new magnetic bearing for horizontal movement. Anti-skating is also applied magnetically. Other key features include:
•A two-piece arm tube constructed from a carbon fibre weave for exceptional rigidity. •A lightweight one-piece aluminium headshell with adjustable azimuth.
•An offset, underslung counterweight.
•Precision micrometer adjustment of tracking force.
•Anti-skating control which is applied by an innovative magnetic system acting on the side of the bearing housing.
•An unbroken run of Clearaudio's own Direct Wire cable which provides a continuous link without solder connections from the cartridge to phono plugs. The Magnify is supplied as standard with a Linn-type mount or can be used with the Clearaudio VTA-Lifter, which allows fine adjustment of VTA even during play. Like all Clearaudio tonearms, the Magnify is designed for use with a wide range of turntables and cartridges.
