With the Versa Dynamics, the whole tonearm assembly can be rotated away from the platter area when changing LPs, so less risk in taking out your cantilever! :-)

The short armtube should have the advantages  
----------------------------------------------------------------------  
Hardly we can all agree that the shorter is actually better!  
 
The terminator does also carry a relatively short armtube and it does look to me that it must share the same problem with Versa Dynamics. Sure you know what I mean! Try to change record after a few pints. You can easily end up getting yourself a new cartridge lor! Best and less risk if you just press the repeat button all night!

回覆 (1750): Tonearm for the grown-up
 
I have always wanted to try out the Versa Dynamics, which I think has a very nicely designed arm. The short armtube should have the advantages in both rigidity and lowering moving mass. The only problem is the LPs need to be flat, or a vacuum platter is required.  
 
I have read reports stated that the high pressure air supply could create water condensation in the bearing and obstruct the arm's movement. However, I have never experience that in my Rockport, and I believe the even higher pressure Kuzma Airline also doesn’t have that problem. So, probably an appropriate filter is all that is needed to solve the problem.

The Landmark louderspeaker article is based on an interview with PMC co-founder Peter Thomas. All the speakers he brought to the article were his personal connections starting from the day when he was an engineer at BBC. He is extremely knowledgeable in speaker design. You just have to read it.

Here is the opening page for the Landmark loudspeakers. The writing was very informative with lots of details on BBC demand and influence on speaker design. QUAD ESL57, Rogers LS3/5A, LS5/5 (never seen one in my life), Spendor BC1, IMF TLS50/80, KEF and my very own Leak 2075/3090 were some unquie designs mentioned in the article.
