    Default FS. Audio Technica AT1100

    Up for sale is my lovely Audio Technica AT1100 arm. This is a superb sounding arm and even though low mass (6g) I've used both a Grado Reference series cart and an Allaerts cart - both sounded sublime and tracked flawlessly. To be honest the AT has a slight sonic edge over my current Siggwan arm and I had thought about mounting it as a second arm but having just bought a cart that needs a high mass arm it would be silly.

    The arm is a great example of precision engineering and is easily up there with SME in this respect.

    Internally silver wired.

    Fluid damping trough.

    Precise VTF, antiskate.

    Okay I've modded the headshell to provide a more stable and rigid coupling for carts. There is no finger lift as I was using a Grace finger lift which matches the wider headshell but am using it on the Siggwan. Can provide a pic and easily available on the bay.

    Only other thing is the grub screw for adjusting VTA - it's perfectly functional but has seen better days.

    I can't emphasise how good this arm is.

    I've seen these go for over 500 on fleabay - I'm looking for 275 ono. PayPal gift.

    Will tracked - 15.

    PM if interested.

    Is the arm a gimballed bearing or unipivot or something else?

    Hi. It's gimballed and the bearings are A1 condition with zero play or chatter. The armwand is detachable for easy cartridge mounting and azimuth is easily adjusted.

    Armwands come up on the bay so you can have ready mounted carts and easily swap over.

    There's also a heavy S shaped wand that occasionally comes up for sale.

    Gimballed arm. Really nice. I bought one back in the mid 80s, when it was in vogue with the reviewers. I had it paired then with a Micro Seiki LC80W - lovely. Since then, I used it with an Ortofon MC10 Super, Decca Gold, Ortofon M20FL, and an Allaerts MC1B. Worked fine with all of them. Beautifully made (by Audiocraft, if my memory serves me correctly). I even had a boxed spare arm tube. Sold it about 3-4 years ago, as it had sat unused in my cupboard after buying a Schroeder and getting J7 to rewire my vintage Hadcock for my Deccas.

    Yes it's a lovely arm and my carts all worked beautifully with it. Strangely the heavier mass S shaped arm wand didn't get the same response from reviewers.
