The MA-505, an ideal dynamic balance type tonearm, permits tracking force to be applied linearly during playback.
The spring tracking force application system which allows linear tracking force adjustment between 0.25-3g, is totally uninfluenced by factors such as turntable location conditions or record pressings.
Furthermore, at low tracking force settings, the tracking is exceptionally stable - resulting in unsurpassed performance with high compliance cartridges.
Precision spring and tungsten wire ensure long life and unchanging accuracy.
