DESCRIPTION

Pro-Ject’s 12cc Evolution tonearm provides precise tracking of the record groove and efficiently redirects parasitic vibration away from the cartridge into the mounting board. The 12″ one-piece conical carbon fiber armtube helps to stave off standing wave reflections. The inverted bearing and counterweight are designed to further reject resonance. Adjustment of VTA and azimuth are simple, and you can also easily adjust the armlift for optimal clearance. Internal wiring is flexible high-purity copper from headshell to output. The supplied TPE-damped counterweights are suitable for cartridges weighing 4-7g, 6-9g, 8-12g and 10-15g respectively.
