Products - Analog - Tone Arm
Product Brand : Tri-planar
Product Name : Triplanar VII Ultimate tonearm
Product Genre : Analog
Condition : NEW

The Tri-Planar flagship tonearm is the "Mk. VII," commonly referred to as the "Tri-Planar Precision Tonearm."  The arm creates a musical sound stage unmatched by any other. It has been described as powerful and dynamic, solid yet expressive, delicate and tactile. The outstanding quality of this arm, commented on time and again, is that it is invisible, lacking the colorations that plague so many of our competitors.  After over 30 years in the industry, the Tri-Planar continues to be rated among the world's best.
