Kuzma Air Line tonearm

Kuzma Air Line tonearm


KUZMA is proud to present its latest design of analogue tonearm; a linear tangential arm incorporating air bearing which ensures practically zero friction in movements, while still maintaining a rigid bearing. The cartridge is thus maintained in a position the same as the cutting head. The Kuzma AIR LINE tonearm is the result of a combination of experience making top class conventional radial tonearms and new research into air bearing technology. The air bearing used is the same type as those used in precision measuring and tool making machines which demand the highest accuracy possible in frictionless movement and positioning. The gap between the shaft and bearing is only 5 microns of a mm. Pressurised air is supplied by the quietest compressors available with air-drying unit and it is best positioned outside listening room connected by only a thin plastic tube. The AIR LINE tonearm also has a rigid, minimally resonating aluminium structure and is easy to adjust, with repeatable VTA and azimuth adjustments. We believe that using the AIR LINE tonearm will be the single greatest leap you could make to improve the quality of sound reproduction in your analogue system.
