Well the package finally arived - USPS can be real slow! I've got the arm fixed up on the Systemdek 11X with a new acrylic armboard 12mm and it sounds realy good. Queing a record was a little tricky to start - you need to use a pinching action on the lever otherwise you end up lifting lifting the arm and platter.

The arm itself is a first class piece of engineering carefully packed with excellent set up instructions and alignment gear to make the install realy easy. I bought a three level set up from ebay so one level on the platter one on the main arm and one tiny level on the catridge head. So far so good, I'm getting lots of detail, and musicality (makes your toes tap!).

I'll get used to operating this arm then swap out the Roksan Chorus Black for something better and see how much further I can go before the law of diminishing returns shows up. Right now i'd say the arm was worth the money a whorthwile improvment over an old MK111 Helios Scorpio. Just how good it is I won't know for a while untill theres a better cartridge in place with a new needle.
