The tonearm holds the pickup cartridge over the groove, the stylus tracking the groove with the desired force to give the optimal compromise between good tracking and minimizing wear of the stylus and record groove. The tonearm can be pivoted in several ways allowing it to be free to move in two axes (vertical and horizontal) with a counterbalance to maintain tracking pressure. It must do this while keeping vibrations at a minimum.
The new zero-play bearing is configured on 4 points. The 4POINT tonearm has an effective length of 280mm (11-inch), a very precise VTA adjustment facility and fits our standard mount with a 212mm pivot-to-spindle distance. The heart of this new design is the unique 4-po >>>

The Simplicity is the fellow of the revolutionary Thales tone-arm. Its geometry is based on a newly created tetragon solution which reduces the tracking error to a maximum of 0.008°. We agree - this value is too small to be of any interest.
