Clearaudio offers vinyl fans a more affordable entry point into tangential tonearm technology. The TT5's surprising and excellent value for money is down to eschewing one or two of the features of its 'big brothers', the TT2 and TT3.
For example, the TT5 adopts a new, fully rigid design. However, for those who still want the convenience the bigger arms' ability to swing out of the way when loading records, Clearaudio have created the optional TT5 swing base which, as its name suggests, allows the entire arm assembly to be swung out of the way when changing records.
