Arko, the latest tonearm from Linn, is a stunner. It features an ultra-stable gimbal platform which facilitates superb bearing concentricity and alignment. Its arm wand travels in space with minimum hindrance; the affixed cartridge moves with the warps and grooves of the record, with finesse and fluidity.
Special care was taken to ensure 7075-grade aluminium be used exclusively throughout the arm wand assembly – from headshell to gimbal – with the resultant material synergy and coupling effectively removing resonances away from the delicate cartridge generator, and out through the sub-chassis.
Marry Arko to its perfect partner, the aluminium-bodied Kendo moving coil cartridge, and this energy transfer is improved even further. A truly remarkable combination!
