RE: New UniPivot arm
Nice one Johnnie, what mount is it?

Send us one down and I'll put it on our new sub/armboard.

Cheers my friend.

RE: New UniPivot arm
Ekos SE beater?
Often wondered why no one had picked up where the Aro left a gap, interested to see more of the engineering when details are released. (Had been tempted to design one myself... Too late it seems lol)

RE: New UniPivot arm
It reminds me very much of the Notts Analog Omega Point arm from the 80's made for their Dias deck. Now that was a cracking arm. If Jonnies sounds anything like it it will be a winner. The Omega similarity coupled with the best bits of the Aro is definitely something to wet my whistle and pique my interest.

Well done I look forward to hearing it.

RE: New UniPivot arm
thanks for the comments guys

the UniArm sounds every bit as good as the for example nain aro and has a similar jem stone bearing and hardened tungsten pointed pivot
the whole arm wand can be easy removed from the base section and new spare wands are available
it has 6 things a aro does/did not have:

slots in the headship to fit any cartridge
built in arm cue as standard
arm clip that holds arm firm when not in use
choice of 2 types of base fitting and geometry (and even a 12 inch option)
choice of finish colour with anodised finish optional extra
effective mass can be pre orderd if customer wants the arm tuned to suit 1 cartridge compliance

hope that sounds tempting

any questions please just ask

RE: New UniPivot arm
Well the Aro is an SE beater so seems like the answer will be yes.

RE: New UniPivot arm
I think he has his tongue in his cheek there. The SE vs Aro battle is one that has its armies highly polarised. I'd say the best option is to have both.
