VPI JMW-9 U 3D Printed Unipivot Tonearm
The original award winning VPI Unipivot design, with the cutting edge technology of 3D printing. The material is a proprietary epoxy resin which forms a rigid, lightweight, structure with good insulation properties. Epoxy is non-crystalline which impedes the transfer of vibration, so it’s the perfect material for tone arms. The shape of the tone arm shaft also adds rigidity to the structure and further prevents the transmission of surface vibrations. The result is a low resonance lightweight tone arm.
"The JMW 3D tonearm's most immediately obvious sonic characteristic was a smooth, non-resonant, exceptionally well-balanced tonal quality that makes it almost seem to disappear."
