A modern classic example of comeback of vinyl trend. Usage of traditional materials - wood, stainless steel and aluminum - and joining them into one piece of precisely crafted product creates unique visual experience. Its innovative technical design enables changing major tonearm parameters - VTA (Vertical Tracking Angle), cartridge azimuth and antiskating - on-the-fly, i.e. while playing a record. An exciting thing about the azimuth adjuster is that during the adjustment process the cartridge "swings" around the needle tip, hence keeping all other tonearm parameters intact. Reed 3P tonearm also features unique bearing setup, which allows listener to enjoy the slightest music tones.
