The new Tonearm TP 82 is a uni-pivot design - a first in this class. The TP 82's bearing is a carbide tip resting within an intricate arrangement of five very small bearing balls. The arm tube is made from rolled aluminium. The anti-skating bias is provided by a small weight. The tonearm comes pre-installed with the THORENS® TAS 257 cartridge, a high-quality moving-magnet pick-up suitable for all MM phono inputs.
