Yes. There are also tangential arms that actually has a short arm so that the tangential tube can be placed outside the turntable perimeter and lower, making the vertical pivot point level with the record surface.

Jan,

Thanks. "Slider" = "sleeve."

I just revisited that program. I wasn't really paying attention the first time so when I looked the second time - understanding "slider" this time - the light came on. I've been building linear trackers for a couple of years, but effective mass and, especially, resonant frequencies have been nearly complete unknowns to me. I hope this program is accurate because I want to start plugging in numbers immediately. And once I have some answers, maybe that will push me to do some measurements.

There have been some real advances made for DIY LTs - check out the link Kevin posted - but numbers and measurements just aren't there, yet.

That arm you posted looks like a real contender...
Very similiar to the Air Tangent in operation

Do you have any more info on this?

Regards
David

There's a thread on this stuff in Vendors Bazaar here: "Zorin Audio" High quality Turntables and Tonearms

I'm just at this time looking to upgrade my LP replay system and as you say these look very good.
What makes me hesitate is that I cannot find any more tech info, like effective tone arm mass to determine whether I should use it with a high- or low compliance cartridge, or the noise production of that pump.
So if anybody does have that info, I'd like to hear it!
