phonograph 1. 2003.

In a classic melding of form and function, the design integrates sound reproduction technology with fundamental principles of structure, form and materials.
The titanium tonearm is cross-drilled to achieve the structural rigidity and lightness of a three dimensional truss. Milled aluminum and Delrin are used in the pivot “knuckle” for a virtually frictionless rotation.  The chassis, supports, and tonearm base are machined from solid aluminum and arranged to absorb any vibrations or resonance within the system. The unique geometry of this structure is designed to minimize tracking errors across the entire playing surface of a record.phonograph 1.
