* The major key to tonearm quality is the sensitivity and stability in retrieving delicate signals, for which the bearings are the determining factor. The SA-1 employs miniature radial bearings for both horizontal and vertical movement. Very high performance is achieved at a reasonable price.
* The rectangular arm-wand is machined from a solid aluminum block having an advantage in rich and tight bass reproduction, as bass sound is mainly recorded in  the horizontal plane of the groove.
* Tonearm wires run through separate aluminum tubes inside the arm so that stereo separation is maximized.
* Reproduced sound is precise and clean, thanks to hand assembly by highly skilled craftsmen.
* Comes with detachable headshell, phono cable (RCA output plug, or optionally as XLR), screws, washers, wrench and marking pin.
