Haha,

Deathstar2013, ahh, regardless of a name or not I'm Relistening To my whole collection again, good pressings now trounce the cd equivalent by a long shot in sound staging and resolution, it's like literally listening to the master tape, I can hear details in the background that were masked before, coughs on live jazz recordings, etc. music flows effortlessly from the speakers and tonality is much more accurate.

Albert Einstein said " Everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler. " Will this be called the Albert tonearm? The Einstein tonearm? Please

3 Cantus parallel tracking arm are winners.

Audiostar,


There is so much truth to that in a world of over engineered things. I use the same philosophy on my electronics designs, ala Nelson Pass, Hugh Dean, as things get more complex than need be so does reliability factor. It would be awesome to be able to put together some sort of kit as the performance of this arm has been leaps and bounds ahead of what I realistically expected going into it. Total cost of material doesn't even crack $50 as the polycarbonate used was just cut off material that usually gets scrapped . Though the stainless steel bolts cost a little more than standards galvanized fare.

These are the names you know, Civic, Mustang, Corvette. Hard to refer to tonearm without a name. By the way, the Opus 3 Cantus thread was started on May 16 2004. This DIY linear tonearm thread could run for 10 years. The group buy ( I am no diy guy and am mechanically challenged) hopefully there will be one in the future is premature. You guys are constantly improving, experimenting, revising the tonearm. Let us see what the status of the tonearm will be in a year. Can somebody do a summary of where we are right now. Is there any agreement on the best way to proceed on this tonearm? What have you learned so far?
