I'm hearing ya...


good luck on the build. When I built mine - which owes a lot to EC8010's arm - I thought the wobbly nature would really bug me. But in practice it really doesn't bother me at all and in use, tracking warps etc it really excels. Didn't think it would perform so good. No wonder they are the darling of the DIYer.

I had a similar idea, albeit with a different magnet orientation. It's still just a concept, but I haven't completely given up on the idea of building it.

With all due respect to Mr. Mark Kelly, if he could describe exactly what aspects of the various tonearm bearings "suck" and how he arrived at these conclusions, it will eventually help in the design of better tonearms. This post is not intended to be a flame nor an idle appeal but a serious attempt to unravel the secrets of the mysterious tonearm.

Maxro, I think your idea has a lot of merit, and may even work better than my original plan. How far along did you get into building it?

I don't even have a scale drawing, just a couple sketches. When I said concept, I meant just that.
