Ortofon TA-210 Tonearm

$2,145

Brand Ortofon

The TA-210 is given a precision machined slit in each end of the aluminum tube. A piece of Ortofon special vibration damping compound is integrated into each slit: Rubber inserts with high vibration damping properties and Special proprietary TPE compound with excellent damping properties are integrated respectively in the bottom and top slit of the arm tube. Due to these two different materials an extended damping effect is obtained in the largest possible range. Both inserts integrated in the tonearm tube are manufactured at the Ortofon technical facilities in Nakskov, Denmark.

TA-210 armtube is a lot less stressed than conventional armtubes due to the Technical rubber and TPE excellent damping properties.

The counterweight should be attached onto the rear of the tonearm with the inner number scale facing forward.  If the extra mass ring is needed, it must be installed prior to attaching the counterweight to the tonearm.  The extra mass ring should be installed on the back of the counterweight and may need to be twisted slightly to facilitate the installation.  Ensure that the extra mass ring fits tightly to the thick part of the counterweight. 

 

TA-210 is the product with great benefits for the discerning analogue user

 

The TA-210 can ideally be combined with MC Windfeld, MC A90, SPU Series and the new Ortofon Xpression.
