It all makes a difference in the sound. My friend ended up with a compressor and tank so he had ripple free flow or his AT. :)

The Airtangent Reference titan linear tracker tonearm sn 34/100 is landed :)

New Old Stock in original alloy box.

Complete with a Micro Seiki SX 8000 MKII custom tonearm base
(as this base goes on 2 corners, it does unfortunately do not fit my TechDAS)

May be I will speak to Hideaki Nishikawa in Munich, if they can develop and produce a matching Tonarme base for my AF3P turntable.

I am not sure which armtube, but I would say, that it feels like the Magnesium version.

The arm was bought from a German Customer, who never fitted the tonearm,
so it is a unit from the original German distributor "Audio Components"

It will take some time, before I am going to fit the arm, as I need a matching tonearm base first.

Next weekend I will start to read the manual in detail :)

I have mounted one on a airforce 3 works well, superb tonearm one of the finest ever produced, can we see a picture of the control/regulator chassis and the compressor. Leif was constantly changing things there were many versions of the Reference and the 10b.

I will do some pictures from control/regulator chassis and the compressor, they never left the alloy box.

You do always find some rare pieces Jürgen. What cartridge are you planning on using with the arm ?
