Ground-breaking design is behind the astonishing performance of the Illustrious arm. This award winning arm has been highly acclaimed as a true performance leader. The outstanding features that yield this are similar to the Encounter and are listed as follows.


Hybrid arm tube composed of 5 materials has better energy dissapating qualities and higher rigidity than the Encounter, yielding increased transparency, dynamics and bass performance.

Ultra low friction dual pivot bearings yield vastly increased clarity and sweet, precise treble free from smearing.

Floating vertical bearings decouple the armtube from the deck and prevents it adding colour to the sound.

High strength aircraft alloy headshell for increased dynamics.

High grade internal Litz cable with Pure copper bullet plugs on upgrade external cable for reduced signal degradation.

We suggest you order a stylus force gauge £8 to set tracking force if you don't have one.
