Abis SA-1 Tonearm

The Abis SA-1 and TA-1 (9-inch) / TA-1L (12-inch) tonearms are all machine-tooled and hand-assembled by Japanese qualified technicians and technique. This differentiates these series from similar-looking Japanese universal type tonearms, being made mainly by diecasted components and through semi-automatically assembling line to make the cost low

 

Hand assembling is not just constructing each component parts but create idealistic mechanical surface contact tightly, between every part, to ensure perfect rigid mechanical contact without any looseness.

 

This more labor-intensive technique means higher quality control necessary to satisfy every vital condition required for properly made analog sound reproduction gear.

 

In the SA-1 tonearm, one will find 2 small metallic round tubes underneath the armwand along each side's edge.  This is a design to help get better channel separation by further isolating the Right and Left channel music signal line from the phono cartridge.

 

Concerning reproduced sound from these models, expect an accurate tonality with a very quiet background, a result from the handmade technique, yet at a very reasonable price.  Also expect a rich sound with tight and high definition bass, attributed to the rectangular shape in the tonearm wand section, as bass is recorded mainly in horizontal wave direction in a vinyl record groove.
