Simplicity: No more tracking error. 0.008° is enough.
 
The Simplicity is an evolution of the revolutionary Thales tonearm. Its geometry is based on a newly created tetragon solution which reduces the tracking error to a maximum of 0.008°. We agree - this value is too small to be of any interest.

This tonearm uses the same bearing technology as the Thales tonearm. Six jewels and four subminiature ball bearings make sure that the friction and clearance are within state-of-the-art tolerances. The intrinsic frequencies of the two tonearm tubes are carefully tuned to inharmonic proportions to exceed the damping properties of any single-arm design.

The Simplicity comes with a special tool to make sure that the installation is as precise as the manufacturing. The headshell can be taken apart easily for exact positioning of the cartridge. The surfaces of the tubes are bronze anodized, using 0.1 g of a specific salt per litre electrolyte. All side forces are balanced by two little magnets, integrated into the counterweight.
