Kuzma - 4Point9 - 9" 4Point Tonearm

Kuzma's 4Point 9 is a shorter version of the 4Point tonearm. Due its 9-inch length and lack of VTA tower this tonearm is lighter and smaller, thus capable of fitting on most suspended turntables. The Kuzma 4Point 9 tonearm is similar in construction to the 4Point tonearm with the same 4 point bearing configuration. Kuzma made the tonearm than the existing arm ( 9 inch) lighter by omitting the VTA tower enabling 4Point bearing quality to be experienced on a greater number of turntables with a smaller footprint or lighter suspension, etc.

The heart of the bearing construction is a unique 4 point bearing. The first set of two points (similar to a double unipivot bearing) allows vertical movement. The second set of two points allows horizontal movement. All four points have minimal starting and moving friction and zero play in all playing directions thus ensuring that the headshell with the cartridge itself moves precisely and with minimal vibration across the record. It would be normal to feel slack in the bearings in certain directions.

The main tube is constructed and machined from solid aluminium, similar to Kuzma's tangential Air Line arm. The counterweight with lock mechanism balances the tonearm. The 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 clips but the headshell can be simply removed by unscrewing with an Allen key.

The headshell is fixed with a precise hexagonal locking system giving the same rigidity as with a fixed headshell. The tonearm is fixed on the turntable arm board via the Kuzma arm base. VTA is adjusted by raising or lowering the tonearm’s pillar in the arm base by a VTA screw which controls its height, while still allowing precise VTA changes when required. Internal wiring is of superior special alloy silver wires. A set of 4 wires runs unbroken from the cartridge pins via a 1.5 m long tonearm cable with silver RCA bullet connectors.
