Thomas Schick 12" tonearm.
The bearings in the Schick arms have a 0 µm positive tolerance and 7 µm negative tolerance. This means that there may only be a maximum of 7 µm small ‘holes’ in each ball respectively to its race. However, there are many balls in the bearing, so the probability that several deviations form this 7 µm clearance at the same time is very low. This principle results in a connection that is practically free of play. Leaving enough ‘air’ of course to rotate freely.
This low tolerance has other properties that are advantageous when building the tonearm: Low running noise. Running noises are undesirable. In the form of resonances, they also contribute to the loss of information. The low tolerance of the polished raceways and balls as well as a synthetic lubricant ensure the lowest possible running noise.
The tonearm includes a lift and arm bench, as well as fixed lowest resistance and capaticance, symetrical cable with Neutrik RCA plugs.
The cable is 1,1m long.
Else you can choose a 5 pin tonearm connector made by me. Teflon isolation and electronic test pins.

The mechanical structure of the SPU A95 cartridge has also been re-engineered, as well as many of its internal assemblies. At the mechanical heart lies a revolutionary customized SLM (Selective Laser Melting) manufacturing procedure. The use of Titanium in SPU A95 has provided a further improvement to the internal damping capabilities as well as to the overall rigidity of the structure.
