Kuzma - 4Point SE Tonearm w/ Crystal Cable 

The Kuzma 4Point, debuted in 2008, differs from any other tonearms by introducing several new and unique features. The new zero-play bearing is configured on 4 points. The 4POINT tonearm has an effective length of 280mm (11-inch), a very precise VTA adjustment facility and fits our standard mount with a 212mm pivot-to-spindle distance. The heart of this new design is the unique 4-point bearing. Two points (which are similar to a uni-pivot bearing) allow and control vertical movements of the tonearm. The other set of two pointed bearings allow and control horizontal (lateral) movements of the tonearm. All four points of the bearing have minimal friction and zero-play in all planes of movement, thus ensuring that the cartridge platform and the cartridge itself follow the grooves of an LP with extremely low friction and minimal vibrations.

The 4POINT’s main section is firmly connected to a very rigid and inert VTA tower which provides the option of fine adjustments of the vertical tracking angle either when the tonearm is stationary or while the LP is playing. All this, of course, without any loss of rigidity and with 0.01mm accuracy of adjustment and zero-play!

The main tube is accurately machined out of a solid rod of aluminum as in our Air Line parallel tracking tonearm. Two separate troughs offer independent damping of vertical and horizontal resonances allowing a very high degree of fine adjustment and tuning at all times. If so desired, damping troughs can be easily be detached from the tonearm.

The 4POINT’s arm balancing solution consists of two counterweights – the main weight allows an accurate overall balance once the cartridge has been installed, while the second, smaller weight provides extremely fine further adjustment for total tracking force accuracy.

Azimuth is adjustable by precise worm drive mechanism allowing very small, repeatable adjustments.

Detachable headshell is another distinctive feature of this superior tonearm. Using a small Allen key, one can completely remove the headshell from the arm tube while the arm wiring including cartridge pins remains uninterrupted in its single run. Our headshell is fixed with a hexagonal locking system which provides the same degree of rigidity as if the headshell was permanently bonded to the arm tube.

The 4POINT’s internal wiring is of the highest quality using special alloy silver formulation. A single, uninterrupted set of 4 wires runs from the cartridge pins to the termination box and further to the Eichmann bullet RCA connectors (overall length 1.4m). Another (2nd) set of 4 wires runs simultaneously from the cartridge pins into the termination box and female Cardas rhodium RCA connectors, allowing use of an alternative tonearm cable between the termination box on the 4POINT and a phono input on your preamplifier. This, so called, bi-wiring approach gives the 4POINT tonearm the highest degree of flexibility and choice of parallel use of some of the very best cables available.

Note: This item is only available to be shipped within the United States. Not all Kuzma products are in-stock items. Accordingly, delivery may take 2-4 weeks. Please call for availability.

FEATURES:



The whole construction is mounted on a rigid VTA tower which allows VTA adjustment while playing, without any loss of rigidity, yet with up to 0.01 mm of precision with zero play. The main tube is constructed and machined from solid aluminium as in our tangential Air line arm.

Two separate troughs damp vertical and horizontal resonances and can be finely adjusted independently. The troughs can be removed from the tonearm. The main counterweight balances the tonearm and has a second small counterweight with which the tracking force can be finely adjusted. Azimuth can be adjusted in small repeatable increments with zero play, by means of an Allen key. A feature of the tonearm is a unique detachable headshell. The electrical connection is via standard pins but the headshell can be simply removed by unscrewing with an Allen key. The headshell is fixed with a hexagonal locking system, giving the same rigidity as with a fixed headshell.

Internal wiring is of superior, special alloy silver wires. One set of 4 wires runs from the cartridge pins to the termination box and further along into a 1.4 m long tonearm cable, with silver Eichmann bullet connectors, in one unbroken length. The second set of 4 wires runs from the same cartridge pins to the termination box to female Cardas RCA connectors thus allowing use of any RCA plugged tonearm cable from termination box to phono preamp input. This gives so called bi-wiring on this tonearm and a lot of flexibility with choice of no compromise cables.
