    Default FOR SALE: Fidelity Research FR64x Tonearm

    Fidelity Research FR64x tonearm. 780

    Superb example of this classic high mass tonearm, beautiful black anodised aluminium with silver internal wiring, FR headshell, original box, external cable, and all accessories. Probably as good an example as you will find; superb condition.

    The arm is a classic piece of industrial engineering, and the sound is exceptionally clear and neutral; a real open window that allows your cartridge to speak. It is especially good with low compliance cartridges; it sounds great with a Miyajima, for example.

    It does look fantastic too, and is an excellent aesthetic match for a wide variety of decks.

    An all black 401? I'd love to see a photo of that. Go on Tom, I feel this FR64x is destined for your collection...

    Here it is ... no doubt at all that the FR64x would be a lovely match here (though I have to say I've been well impressed with the AT-1010):

    At the risk of thread drift on a for sale thread, I have to say Tom that plinth looks wondeful with the Garrard 401. I like the way the TT is inset so that the top of the TT is flush with the plinth. I have a similar looking black gloss Japanese laquer Bastin-style (ie solid) plinth to house one of my Thorens 124s. It can take an additional 12" arm.

    Again apologies for the tread drift Andrew.

    The FR64 is a superb arm and I would buy it myself, were it not for the fact I have eight arms already, and more to the point I can't really afford it at the moment.

    Good luck with the sale.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?
