    The original was basically a rather flimsy fingerlift that doubled as fixing for the cart. I replaced it with a lightweight, solid carbon compound (taken from a carbon compound headshell) platform fixed to the AT's aluminium 'stalk'. It matches perfectly and is the same size as a Grace finger lift (see bottom of post). It has the usual slots for precise alignment.

    The weight increased by 1.5g - making effective mass 6.5g.

    This means carts, even quite heavy, can be very firmly and precisely aligned, whereas before this was a weakness with the arm. I just couldn't get the (large and quite heavy) wood bodied Grado Reference to sit right before the change. Once it was done fitting the Grado or my Allaerts was a doddle.

    I can take some better pics, including the finger lift (not included with arm but easily found on the bay, got mine from a seller in Scotland, can find his details) tomorrow.

    Leave it with me. Trust me I had no intention of selling the arm - it's transparent and lovely to use - but I just committed to buying a Miyajima shilabe (bloody expensive cart) from Hugo at ammonite audio and extra money is needed.

    Will post tomorrow.

    Some user reviews from VE.

    *AT 1100

    *by*satanfriendly

    A lovely piece of engineering and great quality, but not the easiest arm to set-up and a delicate object. VTF is a bit of a fiddle and the headshell design does not make for a simple alignment. The sound is a little unfocused lacking in real bass. What it does reward with is a very detailed sound, a precise delicate treble and a nice sound-stage. Just find it a little overly complex in use.

    *by*russmaleartis

    I have the Signet XK50 version of this arm since the 80's, and still am using it for vinyl playback on my Thorens TD160 Super. Its tracking and music extraction from the record groove, no matter how complex, does an excellent job. The stylus pressure is exact, and the counterweight being on a lower level than the tonearm, is able to maintain an even stylus pressure even on warped records. The tonearm is able to also extract detail with control throughout the frequency range and do so with control, balance with tonal purity. I also upgraded my soundboard with one custom made by Soundsupprt . . . and the result has been most satisfactory. Not only does it couple with the XK50, but it was finished with the utmost care. It is always tempting to try a new tonearm as is other components, but when you have success and the quality the Signet provides -- why bother?

    *by*PatMatt

    Undoubtedly the best low mass tonearm I've ever used or heard. My Denon DL-103D cartridge never sounded as good as it did on this arm.

    *by*DrPan K

    9.5/10..excellent build quality, silver wiring, oil damping, adjustable VTA. with the right cartridge (AT 20 SLA, AT 24) will provide a resonant frequency of exactly 10 Hz and at the same time among the best MM experiences. close to perfection

    *by*ohbythebay

    The most incredible arm made...like a black widow but with better damping...
