Yes, sir,
the other two posts can be used for two more rotary tonearms.

The tonearms are maintenance free - all materials are industry approved - no toys.

Of course I offer the personal delivery and the installation as well as the perfect calibration.
I attach great importance to personal care. I also give the customer a complete briefing.

Here are two rough pictures of the prototype - but still without "life" inside.
The software is still in development. The keys still have to be labeled.

Thank you sir. One more question. Is the switching of cart independent of your initial arm setup? ..in case the owner want to switch cart easy peasy.

Kind regards,
Tang

Dear Tang,

Changing the pickup is independent. But it is not quite as easy as with the SME System coupling.
It is not a quick-change system. But it can be done by the customer himself - after the briefing.

A quick change is only possible if the customer has a second arm tube with bearings and counterweights.
This is due to the special contacts that transmit the sound signal. These are contacts from medical technology.
They have 32 (very expensive) gold plated contact surfaces per socket. As you can see here:

Hi Marty,
The retail price has not yet been finally determined. It will be around 30.000 € incl. tax.
Same price as the "bigger one" linear tracker is.

Thanks, Rainer

Why you do a new model at same price?
well, to give the customer his choice - and because they're both worth their price.
Both require the same amount of precision work. Only in the material are 500,-- € difference.

Ciao, Rainer

But surely there will be a group discount for WBF members, right? :)
There are even some members who alone, will probably buy 3 for their personal table (you know who you are!).
In fact, I'll bet that if you slap an "SME" sticker on it, there are other members who might even buy one!!o_O (with apologies Rainer, that's an insider joke to regular readers of the WBF)

I can't see DDK docking his ship in this particular port.
