See link for review:


"The Wilson Benesch arm is quite honestly the best tonearm that I have ever used, and I don’t think that I am going out on a limb by saying that it is better than the Graham arm in many respects. The Graham 2.0 is a superb arm (at $4000 Canadian, it better be) that is much easier to adjust than the Wilson Benesch ACT 0.5. The Wilson Benesch arm just has that funky, soulful groove thing going that the Graham lacks. There is a greater sense of immediacy and naturalness with the Wilson Benesch arm. Listening to Bruce Springsteen’s The Ghost of Tom Joad [Columbia C67484], I could clearly hear the differences between the Wilson Benesch arm and the rest of the group. Springsteen’s voice was much more natural-sounding and his harmonica playing didn’t send me running from the room. The difference in the degree of immediacy was significant. I felt more involved with the music".
