Alphason Specialist Audio Unveils HR-200S Tonearm - UK Audio Show 2021
Alphason's HR-100S tonearm set new standards for vinyl replay when it landed in the early eighties and has since amassed somewhat of a cult following. This weekend company founder Mike Knowles unveils the HR-200S at the UK Audio Show 2021.
Just as the HR-100S featured a one-piece titanium cast arm-tube and headshell design, the HR-200S sports a one-piece composite headshell and arm-tube with internal damping. We are told that this is unique and sets the industry standards for tonal purity, clarity and resolution of fine detail.
Additionally, ceramic bearings that are said to be far superior to those used in competitors' tonearms can be found in the Alphason HR-200S. We are informed that these “set new levels for sound staging, definition, and focus”.
Finally, bespoke pin-jacks and the “highest quality, single-piece wiring” round off the features of this new tonearm.
You are cordially invited to visit the Alphason Specialist Audio trade stand, where Mike is looking forward to meeting friends old and new.
