    Default Audiomods Series 6 Tonearm

    Hi to all, sharing some photos of the new audiomods series 6 tonearm. The PDF that was sent to me is just a draft version so just screen grabbed it.

    That's a lot of arm for the money

    That looks very nice and if the build quality is as good or better than the IV I used to own an absolute bargain.

    Moving away from the Rega based arm is good, when will a 12" arm follow.

    In terms of build quality and engineering I’m a big supporter of the Audiomods arm and I certainly wouldn’t let the lack of a 12” version put me off. For some time now It looks to me as though Audiomods have been ‘chanelling’ the design of the super expensive Tri-Planar arms and with this latest update they may well have equalled, or exceeded, those they emulate. I’m personally looking for a second arm and I have to say this has shot right to the top of my list.

    Hi Mark, spot on with the Tri-Planar reference, that's exactly what a friend said when I showed him the photos. The series 6 comes in 2 lengths, the 9" and 10.5". I ordered the 10.5" since my deck can accommodate a longer arm. Its supposed to be ready end of April. Literally counting down the days.

    It'll be interesting if the 'tone' is retained. The Rega arm tube is pretty special being cast in one piece (similar to SME?) and Jeff addresses issues with the holes and strengthening.

    Hope its development for improvement rather than supply issues. Must be a thorn to hear the best Rega based arm isn't a Rega

    I was thinking the same Mark, i guess Rega have tried to dissuade companies like Audiomods in the past when they went to the 3 point anchoring

    Here are the technical details:

    Based on the specs, the carbon fiber arm tube along with the built in azimuth adjustment should be an improvement.
