Reed 2A

Reed 2A is for customers, who have fixed audio setup and just want to listen for the perfect sound. Reed 2A model has the same sound quality as Reed 3Q or Reed 2P models, but has less possibilities for adjustment.

Reed 3P

Reed 3P is our latest tonearm model. Built after our Reed Mag prototype tonearm, it will replace current Reed 2P model. Being the latest addition to our 3rd class tonearms, it will not only have fine VTA adjustment on-the-fly, but also feature unique possibility of adjusting azimuth while playing a record. An exciting thing about the azimuth adjuster is that during the adjustment process the cartridge ”swings” around the needle tip, hence keeping all other tonearm parameters intact (you can see how it works by watching a short video).

Magnetic antiskating and some other features, used in Reed 3P, were developed in our Reed Mag prototype model*, which made its first appearance in Analog Forum 2011 Krefeld, Germany.

Reed 3Q

Reed 3Q tonearm is dedicated for customers, who like to set up their audio equipment precisely using latest technology. Reed 3Q is equipped with laser, which allows to adjust VTA and azimuth very quickly and precisely (VTA precision +/- 0.1 mm, azimuth precision +/- 0.25 deg). It is very important after changing cartridges, because cartridge heights are different. As everyone may know, after every switch of cartridge VTF should be adjusted also. Using cartridges with high and medium compliance, VTA (SRA) should be adjusted every time after changing VTF. It is because VTF changes cause cantilever bending and changes of SRA. To get best sound quality, even after changing LP with different thickness (it can be from 0.8 mm to 3 mm), VTA should be adjusted accordingly.

Reed Tonearm Turret

Tonearm Turret is an acoustically dead base (also called an arm pod) for extra tonearm. Base height (default) – 100 mm, diameter – 100 mm. Height adjustment – 10 mm adjustable feet. Available in various heights and diameters.

It is made like a sandwich from several layers of stainless steel, cork oak (Quercus suber), granite (Matrix anticato) and acrylic.
