Performance

The Zephyr arm is a considerable advance on the Silver with stronger, hard to machine alloys used throughout the yoke and base. It also includes additional stiffening and damping in the arm tube. All this adds up to a clear improvement in bass weight, dynamics, resolution and image stability.

Many people wonder how much to invest in a tonearm. The answer to choosing the right arm for your needs is directly related to the importance of a tonearm in system hierarchy. To understand how much, a better tonearm will dramatically improve your system performance please see our “analysis of leading arms” page. This also reveals the story behind our cutting edge performance and introduces many aspects that apply to all our arms, saving repetition that would otherwise occur on every tonearm page.

Further product information such as specifications are found on side menu items such as "Key information"

  1. Zephyr tonearm Review by Jon Berg

    I bought my Zephyr arm about 18 months ago and found it as easy to fit as my Rega 301 with a notable improvement in the sound.

    The arm worked well with various cartridges including a Goldring 2500, Musicmaker III and Denon DL-103. Great detail, low noise, and a rich musical sound.

    I am delighted with the Zephyr and expect to use it for years to come. Thank you!

  2. Origin Live Zephyr Review by F. Bennett Pearce

    The Zephyr tonearm replaced a modified Rega 250 on my Artisan Fidelity Thorens 160. A friend and I performed the installation in an afternoon and mounted and aligned the Grado Reference Sonata cartridge. This arm has performed beautifully in my system. I especially like the continuous wiring from cartridge clips to preamp inputs which eliminated connectors and additional wires. The grounding was excellent. I have made no changes since the initial installation and am looking forward to many more hours with this arm. I hope to use more Origin Live products in the future. (Posted on 18/05/2013)
