Re: Wooden Tonearms - TonearmAudio.com

The quest for a tonearm for my Lenco L75 is becoming very confusing. I have looked at:

1. Origin Live OL1 full mod except external cable - about UKP 330 (about $ 530)
2. Audioquest PT 9 - sub $ 500 on audiogon
3. Moth 700 (nothing but OEM version Rega RB700) badged Moth - sub $ 600 on audiogon
4. Rega RB251 unmodified - about $ 250.
5. Airbearing MG1 plus air pump - about $ 800, but the pump is supposed to be very noisy.
6. Various versions of Jelco arms including 12 inchers - upto about $ 600.

I don't know yet if the Tonearm Audio wooden number is even in contention.

My requirement: I want to be able to use a heavy MC cartridge like Denon DL 103 as well as lighter MM ones that I already own (Shure V 15 Mark III, Ortofon Super OM 20 - both needing re-tipping, Shure Mx97E, Shure M55, a Sony whose model number I can't recall, and hopefully B&O MMC 20 S). And also bring out the best of what the 'table is inherently capable of after a plinth rebuild. Anti-skating function needed if the arm is a 9 incher. I am open to 12 inchers also as plinth size is not a constraint. Ideally I would like to limit the outlay to $ 500-600 unless I am going to get substantial sonic gains by spending more.

Any directions/pointers/ideas, warnings/pitfalls, whatever, for a confused soul?
Thanks in advance,
Joshua

Joshua,
though I have read your Lenco thread. I dont remember why you are replacing the tonearm. So I would suggest if original can be dismantled. Refurbish it from top to bottom OR there is one in good condition available here Goldring Lenco L75 Tonearm | eBay
Regards
