RE: Tiger Paw sKale
I don't like sKale because of its asymmetry with respect to its horizontal axial axis.
It is symmetrical with respect to its vertical axial axis but if this axis is not perfectly aligned with the vertical axis of the tonearm it can stress the horizontal bearing of the tonearm.
And perfection is not of this world.
Regards.

I guess you haven't heard/seen one then.......................because if you had you'd realise its impossible to stress the horizontal bearing of a unipivot like the Aro.
As for the Ekos SE, its built like a Panzer tank, so even if you have wonky eyes and can't see when the cwt is on straight, the bearings aren't going to complain for at least the next thousand years............

I didn't talk about the Naim Aro.

It's a like a Panzer tank in the normal audio use but not in the abnormal use. Linn LP12 and all of their parts are designed to last forever in their own context.
I don't have wonky eyes but not even with built-in ruler to do perfect things in an imperfect world. regards.

RE: Tiger Paw sKale
I'd argue that the bearings in a Panzer tank were somewhat more fit for purpose. I never read of any instances where the turret had to be removed in order to re-load!
