David Cope from Old Forge Distribution, part of Old Forge Studio, Recording and Hi-Fi, wandered the halls at The California Audio Show this year, carrying around the reasonably priced “Wand” tonearm manufactured by Design Build Listen.
Reasonably-priced, conveniently adjustable, carbon fiber unipivot tonearms.
Manufactured in two performance levels: “Plus” and “Master”, and three lengths.
These will set you back just a few hundred bucks [these days, we have to be specific about what reasonably priced means].
As you can see, there is even a tray for your favorite ‘goo’ if you want to add some damping
The arm is a drop in replacement for lots of low quality arms out there and there are already several Design-Build-Listen Wand tonearm dealers.
