"I have fitted my new (Silver) tonearm and can now see why you were so excited about it. It gives a very clear focus to my music, the stereo effect is superb and the response is incredible. All the instruments in each piece I played have a new vibrancy about them. To say that I am very pleased with it would be an understatement. It was also extremely easy to fit and set up. It has only after such a short time given a new meaning to vinyl listening for me. Thank you for your advice."

"Two years ago I bought a Gyro SE with a Rega 600 arm and Ortofon Roman cartridge. This again, was a huge step up (from my Linn Axis). Recently I have purchased your Silver arm. I put it on my Gyro with the Ortofon cartridge and was completely blown away. I was amazed at how much better vinyl playback could still get. Every aspect of the music was improved with no compromise. Over the years I have made many improvements (some very costly) to my system, but this arm is by far the biggest improvement I have ever made.”

Now in MK3A form, the Silver has undergone significant upgrading since its introduction in 2002. When first launched, the arm received widespread acclaim for outperforming high end arms, but at a fraction of the cost.
Silver has a wide range of strengths which make it a great all rounder. Highly musical, it tracks dynamics accurately and gets right into the groove of the music. It has a natural tonal balance with excellent transparency and fine performance at both frequency extremes. A superb all rounder at a giveaway price, it has no obvious weaknesses and represents the first step on the high end performance ladder.
