ABIS SA-1 Tonearm

ABIS SA-1 Tonearm

Substantial strength, made with great care by Japanese craftsmen.

The major key to tonearm quality is the sensitivity and stability in retrieving delicate signals, for which the bearings are the determining factor. The SA-1 employs miniature radial bearings for both horizontal and vertical movement. Very high performance is achieved at a reasonable price.

  • The rectangular arm-wand is machined from a solid aluminum block having an advantage in rich and tight bass reproduction, as bass sound is mainly recorded in the horizontal plane of the groove.
  • Tonearm wires run through separate aluminum tubes inside the arm so that stereo separation is maximized.
  • Reproduced sound is precise and clean, thanks to hand assembly by highly skilled craftsmen.
  • Comes with detachable headshell, phono cable (RCA output plug, or optionally as XLR), screws, washers, wrench and marking pin.
