Product Description

Uses a double knife edge that is a bearing system with no diameter and resistance.
In the WE-407/23, the processing accuracy has been improved, and the ultra-high accuracy of ± 1/500mm or less has been realized. In addition, the miniaturization of the double knife edge has been succeeded by the latest high-precision processing technology and the hand processing which can be called craftsmanship, and the flexibility of high-compliance lightweight cartridge has been obtained.

In addition to the mechanical equalizer that optimally brakes low-frequency resonance, a newly developed mechanical damping mechanism has been employed to successfully reduce Qo without sacrificing critical motion.
The bearing part that supports the knife edge is made into a comb-shield by ultra-precision machining of hard steel, and it is designed not to be displaced or lifted against any force.
Uses a thread suspension type inside four scan cellar.
This mechanism also has the function of SAEC's own automatic needle pressure increment mechanism which increases the needle pressure as it goes to the inner circumference of the record. In particular, by preventing the needle tip from rising in the inner circumference, it stabilizes the high-frequency range and enables playback with less distortion.
The arm pipe uses a highly rigid light alloy pipe with a special treatment to thoroughly suppress the pipe squeal characteristic of metals.
The main weight uses a helicoid type that allows accurate needle pressure application and has a built-in damping mechanism that absorbs external vibration transmitted from the arm bearing.
