    ive got an idea of what proper free play is on a tonearm now too,even with the new bearings the zeta doesn't float like this one does

    Jamie thats a lovely tonearm and I think it will suit the 590 better than the Zeta, as good as the Zeta is aesthetically I don't think it look's quite right
    The S shaped silver tone arms match the turntable very nicely IMO
    I'm using an SME 3009 mk2 on mine and it looks great but not the last word in tone arms IMO and I am considering something better like the micro Seiki MA505 or fidelity Research FR65 or one of the Pioneers like you have

    Lovely arm and beautifully engineered, its like a work of art. Did it come with the arm wired? What you will find is that the Dynamic Absorber will play a large and positve part in the performance of the arm (As it does with mine, although I have a different arm) and turntable.
    Will you be using your current cartridge?
    Congratulations and enjoy.

    hi,thanks,yes i the arm is wired and i have the external cable too, i will give it a go with the denon 103sa but i will need to add a bit of extra weight at the rear.
