The Arm One/II is an exquisitely made arm which use a single piece of machined aluminium for the one piece arm tube/headshell, which is internally tapered to keep the arm both stiff and light. Another solid block of aluminium is machined to make the bearing housing which contains ‘captured unipivot’ bearings.

The arm uses the same geometry and fixings as Rega arms, so can be fitted to almost any deck, and thanks to a wonderfully simple and effective collar, vta can easily and repeatedly be adjusted in tiny increments (there’s a clear marking for every 0.25mm increment). The supplied nut can be done up by hand so you don't even need tools (although a spanner can be used too).

At first the most striking thing about the sound of this arm is the sheer speed of transients, the leading edges of notes are captured brilliantly and seemingly not at the expense of their natural decay (as is often the case with many ‘fast’ sounding products).

 It has a very focused and tight sound, like it’s always in control but it doesn’t ‘sit on’ the music at all. In fact I it’s a very hard product to fault - all I could really come up with was that the finger lift doesn’t hook around your finger and so at times feels like it could slip off, but the superb lift/lower mechanism makes this redundant anyway.

If you’re in the market for an arm at this level then you really should get an audition, I can think of no other arms that combines this level of precision, speed and musicality.

The arm is available in silver or black finishes and this Arm One/II version is the start of the family and uses Copper wiring throughout (AN-A for the external cable).
