g For SA-1.2, SA-1.2B, SA-1.2BCS, (As attached photo) two sets of fine radial bearings are installed for both horizontal (set in the bearing stem column) and vertical (further small bearing at tonearm wand) suspension. This assures audiophiles of smooth tonearm function, greater longevity, better consistency, and enhanced ability to track warped vinyl.
(In SA-1.2BCS,negative-balance selection is to follow more precisely to warped vinyl)
(More versatile bearing of “Double Bearing Pivot suspension” is applied to ZA-12,as mentioned after.)
h For TA-1 and TA-1L, the same type radial bearing, used in the SA-1.2 for horizontal motion, is used, while a delicate pivot bearing is employed for vertical movement (this is still a bearing, but the bearing axis end is cone shaped, and requires careful assembly and adjustment). The right side cone in this photo is inserted into the miniature bearing inner race.
i For the SA1.2 and ZA-12, lead wires run through separate aluminum tubes inside the arm, maximizing stereo separation.
j For the ZA-12, the tonearm collet is removed. The effective length and geometry gives very low tracking error. The stylus tip of the cartridge is maintained as closely to the centerline of the tonearm as possible. The mass distribution is kept as close to neutral as possible.
k Comes with phono cable (RCA output plug, or optionally as XLR), screws, washers, wrench and marking pin.
l Antiskating mechanism works favorably, in proportion to cartridge vertical stylus tracking force.
