Little Fwend Tonearm Lift Reviews
“The Little Fwend, the name of which you will hate or love, is one of the most well-conceived, well-packaged, well-made audio accessories I have encountered. I recommend it without hesitation.”
– Art Dudley, Stereophile
“The lift cylinder is smooth-operating and well-damped, which results in a gentle rise, free of bouncing or “violent upheavals” as the arm rises, regarding of its mass or tracking force. Little Fwend provides excellent set-up instructions and includes both magnetic and adhesive ways to fix the base to your turntable.”
—Michael Fremer, Analog Planet
Height Ranges: Do You Need a LOW or HIGH Model
The LOW model can be used under tonearms with clearance between the underside of the arm wand and the mounting surface as low as 32mm and up to 49mm. The HIGH model works with ranges from 49mm to 82mm. Height is adjusted by a set screw in the base. A hex key is included to make these adjustments. Please measure the distance from mounting/plinth surface up to the underside of tonearm wand. Take the measurement when the tonearm has correct VTA and the needle is in the groove. Subtract approximately 1mm from this distance to make sure there will be safe clearance between the rubber beam and the moving tonearm. Little Fwend comes with a metal mounting plate and an adhesive tape circle to adhere the mounting plate to the turntable.
