    Default Glanz Tonearm Review in HiFi News

    The Glanz MH-124S has just been reviewed by Nick Tate and Paul Miller in the March 2018 edition of HiFi News magazine. They liked it very much and gave it their 'Editor's Choice' award. We will have the full review available for download from our website soon.



    The review summary reads:

    'Don't be fooled by its 1970s-style retro appearance, for the Glanz MH-124S is an absolutely top-tier modern tonearm whose sound quality leaves nothing to be desired. Indeed, it easily stands comparison with the most respected rival designs from the past few decades. It is lovingly built, beautifully finished and a joy to use - making it extremely good value for money, even at its not inconsiderable price.'

    The Glanz MH-4S Series arms are available in 9", 10" and 12" versions, all priced the same at 5600

    I believe there are versions available costing > 10,000.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    Indeed, 13995 for the MH-124SD, to be more exact.
