Thales Simplicity Tonearm

The One and Only Tangential Pivoted Tonearm
It’s technology fascinates, it’s music inspires.

The Simplicity is the fellow of the revolutionary Thales tonearm. Its geometry is based on a newly created TThales Simplicity TA Trioetragon solution previously developedĀ  in 1953, which reduces the tracking error to a maximum of 0.008Ā°. We agree – this value is too small to be of any interest.

But it might well be interesting that this tonearm uses the same bearing technology as the Thales tonearm. Six jewels and four sub-miniature ball bearings make sure that the friction and clearance are within our state-of-the-art tolerances. The intrinsic frequencies of the two tonearm tubes are carefully tuned up in harmonic proportions to even top the damping properties of any single-arm design.
