Illustrious 12" arm tube option instead of standard 9.5"
"...and the winner is... the Origin Live Illustrious, a pick up arm that is quite simply breathtaking."
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.
