The Michell TecnoArm II has brought some improvements to this popular tonearm. Now using the latest 3-point mount, the TecnoArm II is based on the Rega RB202 tonearm and uses a new arm tube which is more rigid than its predecessor. The taper on the arm tube has a new profile to improve sound reproduction and there are larger webs to stiffen the bearing to arm tube interface. The headshell has been re-designed as well. A proprietary stress relieving process is applied to the arm tube to toughen the bearing housing and headshell areas. The arm tube mass is lowered at the headshell end, with 22 holes precision drilled on the underside. This increases trackability and reduces unwanted resonances. The underside of the headshell is aligned to the main bearings and precision milled in a jig, ensuring zero azimuth for the cartridge. The arm is internally foam-damped and rewired with one continuous length of Michell's proprietary 99.999% pure silver Litz wire between Michell's own silver-plated machined cartridge clips and Michell's own silver-plated billet brass RCA plugs. The underslung TecnoWeight counterweight is supplied with two weights: the lighter one for cartridges between 3 and 6 grams, the heavy one for cartridges between 6 and 13 grams. An optional extra heavy weight is available for cartridges weighing up to 16 grams. The TecnoWeight has a precision vernier adjustment for setting tracking weight in 1/10th gram increments without need for a stylus scale. Michell's hasn't forgot about VTA adjustment. Their ingenious 3-point VTA adjuster is included allowing for arm height adjustment without arm removal. The arm is supplied with 3 shorter arm board standoffs and 3 shorter de-coupling standoffs giving a wider range of adjustment on all vintages of Michell Gyro or Orbe turntables. Mounting template, mounting screws, alignment protractor and instructions are included.
