Tri-Planar MK VII U2 Tonearm

Quick Overview

Tri-Planar MK VII U2 Tonearm 

The unique dual-pivot design of this precision tonearm provides unrivaled tracking, transparency, and resolution. 

The arm creates a musical sound stage unmatched by any other. It has been described as powerful and dynamic, solid yet expressive, delicate and tactile. The outstanding quality of this arm, commented on time and again, is that it is invisible, lacking the colorations that plague so many of our competitors.


• Black or silver finish
• Damped headshell
• Annealed-aluminum coaxial damped armtube

• Bearings featuring hand-crafted, hardened and polished needle cones
• Progressive anti-skating design
• Sophisticated system of decoupled counterweights, allowing proper stylus force for any cartridge without altering effective mass
