my mixture of the Acoustical Systems tonearm Axiom and my Toho pipes/headshells- called ToXiom led me to the conclusion going for a complete Acoustical Systems tonearm some day.
A new project (I may write later about it – modern DD-drive) allowed me to implement a 10 inch Aquilar tonearm.
I used my AS mounting alignment tool to bring the arm into position – of course UNI-Din related.
My Audio Technica ART 1000 cartridge was put into the Arche headshell pretty precisely, also setting VTA/ SRA via the Arche headshell into position.
The result is stunning. It is not only an easy mounting tonearm of the modern kind. It is also a wonderful sounding instrument making me really happy. I do understand why the Aquilar won prizes in Japan and some other countries.
