Looking at the Aro version with the 400% zoom the Akula mounting collar seems to be higher than the original Aro mounting collar. Am I right or is it an optical illusion?

Well spotted Smile
Yes, it is a few mm higher, because we no longer use the original collar for mounting we thought it worth trying several heights and this was better.

Roger,
how do you ensure that the tiny tonearm wires do not touch the higher Akula mounting collar?
Thanks

As long as the wires are dressed sympathetically then it's not a problem Matt.

Roger,
it would be very nice to see a picture of a LP12/Akula/Aro.
Thanks

It is stateside already. I have been running an Akula sub-chasis for over a month on my LP12. This is a brilliant piece of engineering. I love the improvement over the GSA Keel clone. I also appreciate being able to preserve the retro look with the original arm board. I have just received a Keel on loan and will be able to do a comparison. Cheers to Roger for the design with pleasant conversation and help.

Regards
Mike

Good stuff Mike, glad you like it. By the way, many thanks for your tip on the inserts for the arm board. I've now gone back and implemented these on all of the first batch, so really appreciate that!

RE: Tiger-Paw Akula sub chassis
Morning all, I'm interested as it's some 5 weeks since the last post on this, does anyone have any updates/opinions on the Akula ?

I'm a fan of Tiger Paw products (Khan and Skale fitted) and thought the Akula would've generated a lot more discussion by now…………………….

Mike,
would you please shed some light on your Akula - Keel comparison?
Thank you.
