Product Overview

The Moth MKI tonearm uses a custom one piece aluminium arm tube, carefully manufactured to optimise performance and reduce stress on the precision bearings. Each tonearm is meticulously hand assembled using custom tools and precision torque settings to guarantee optimum performance. This level of care ensures perfect tracking and maximises the amount of information that the cartridge can extract from the record groove

Please note that the New Moth MkI has a traditional variable anti-skate mechanism fitted unlike it’s more famous big brother. All moth tonearms have a magnetic variable anti-skate system fitted

Features:
  • Technically correct levels of effective mass
  • High quality appropriate materials used throughout
  • Unique anti skate mechanism which provide ample power whilst introducing no bearing friction
  • Very high levels of stability whilst tracking the record resulting in market leading performance in dealing with record warps, large or small
  • Bespoke manufactured wiring throughout offering ultimate performance

    Well Pleased :)

    Posted by AudioFreak on 1st Jul 2016

    Thought it was about time I upgraded the arm on my venerable vintage STD 305M TT. Expecting a challenge I could be not be more wrong, with the supplied mounting template fitting was a breeze, with the arm fitting in every respect ! So onto listening and I was not disappointed ! Detail extraction was of the highest order with minimum sibilance on female vocals. A really balanced sound emanated from the Arm with no prominence across the audio range, always a good sign! Top end was focused and sweet with just a slight tizz on some cymbals exhibited. Mids were revealing and holographic with great separation especially with voice and Horns. The best for me though was the botton end - full of clout, punch and extension allied with a superb articulation and tunefulness! This Arm was designed to music and it does it in spades !! Wholehearted 5 Stars. Partnering equipment.

    Cartridge - Ortofon OM20 Super
    Preamp - David Watson Discrete.
    Power Amp - David Watson 300B Single Ended Triode.
    Speakers - Tannoy Chesters.

    The arm installed easily. The protractor which came with the arm was accurate. Records sound better than ever. Thank you!

    A Rega at a bargain price

    Posted by Paul Morris on 21st Feb 2014

    I finally took the plunge and decided to go with the Moth MK1 as it appears a better bargain than some of the other entry range arms. When compared to a friends Rega RB202 there are no differences at all in looks or perforamnce. My only reservation now is that I maybe should have gone with the incognito rewire at the same time.
