Default let me see your tonearm!

I'm looking for highres pictures of tonearms... I want to manipulate them digitally and print a giant poster to hang in my apartment.

If you give me the winning shot, I'll send you a copy of the poster... this is a big poster we are talking about here... approx value $300 to print.

Show me what you've got! artsy shots are appreciated!

Thanks,
Ross

Seriously now...can we send photo's we find on the net as well?

Or will only ones own photo's of ones own tonearm be eligble for the prize?

Regards,
Bas

Hello Frank,

i had plenty of experience with this thing, i found that if i raise the air pressure to sonically desirable values then the slider tube tends to jam due to being pulled elliptical by the air pressure.

Otherwise i found it sounded quite good, better than i expected from the (weak looking) structure.

What i don't find alltoo desirable (as with any commercial tonearm) is that if you adjust one parameter (say .... VTA?) then you have to re-optimize a bundle of other parameters.
