Kuzma - 4Point11 - 11" Precision Tonearm
Kuzma - 4Point - 11" Precision Tonearm
NOTE: The CarCl model does not have an XLR option.
The Kuzma 4Point, debuted in 2008, differs from any other tonearm by introducing several new and unique features. The new zero-play bearing is configured on four points. The 4Point tonearm has an effective length of 280mm (11"), a precision VTA (Vertical Tracking Angle) adjustment and fits our standard mount with a 212mm (8.3”) pivot-to-spindle distance.
*ALL 11 inch 4Point arms are now fitted with the latest-gen ETI RCA Silver Bullet RCA plugs
The heart of this new design is the unique 4-point bearing. Two points control the vertical movements of the tonearm. The two points control the horizontal 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 minute 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 resonance, 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. The second, smaller weight provides minute further adjustment for total tracking force accuracy.
Azimuth is adjustable by a precision worm-drive mechanism allowing very small, repeatable adjustments. The detachable headshell is another distinctive feature of this superior tonearm. Using a small hex 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 silver alloy 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 (4.6')). 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: USA sales and shipment only. Tonearms do not come with a cartridge. No cables are included with
DIN Tonearms. Some Kuzma items ship from overseas, so delivery times may vary. Accordingly, delivery
may take 2-4+ weeks. For questions about availability and shipment, please contact Sound Approach.
