Sorane tonearms ZA12 transcription tonearm
ZA12 - The purist 12" transcription tone-arm.
The NEW for 2018 ZA12 Transcription Arm takes the strengths of the Sorane SA1.2 tonearm (already recognized as a Class A component) and marry these strengths into a purist 'no compromise' purist tonearm, with a fair price.
No compromise meant giving up detachable headshells and lengthening the arm for lower tracking error.
While the ZA12 is 3″ longer than the SA1.2, the total mass of the ZA12 is lower, guaranteeing that the new arm will be compatible with a broader range of high quality cartridges. And if you want more mass for very low compliance cartridges, you can easily add it.
There is a counter-weight accessory for balancing out very heavy cartridges.
