Another distinguishing feature is the integral vta adjuster wheel shown above.
May 2007 is the time Mk3 arms were introduced.
MK3C The C represents a special Carbon tube introduced throughout 2009 starting with the Enterprise.
The carbon tubes can be identified by the distinctive headshell joint with the tube – see photo or the black gloss portion of the tube itself.
Linear Flow 2 external arm cable – a balanced and fully shielded cable was also introduced for all arms as an option but fitted as standard to all Conqueror MK3C and Enterprise MK3C arms.
Linear Flow 2 external arm cable is easily identified as it has a black braid covering aso opposed to the smooth insulation on the other external cables.

– Exchange of MK1 or MK2 Illustrious for MK3C Conqueror – order payment is £1700
– Exchange of MK1 or MK2 Illustrious for Enterprise C – order payment is £3065
To order an exchange arm, you can phone or email your order with your address details.
We will then send you a pro-forma invoice
You can then pay using paypal or credit card (please phone credit card details and do not email them as this is not secure).
Lastly send your old arm to our address as shown in our contact details (often at the bottom of our web pages) and as soon as we receive your arm we can send you the new one. When posting the arm please do not put a value higher than £30 on the arm as we will then wrongly be charged import duty etc.
If you have a different arm that you wish to upgrade then please e-mail or phone us.
