Ortofon tonearms offer excellent versatility and exceptional performance for both historic and modern turntable applications.

Ortofon tonearms are legendary in their performance, both with the superior Ortofon SPU moving coil phono cartridges on historic turntable and when used with modern turntables such as the Merrill-Williams and Merrill-Scillia models.  Ortofon has taken a no nonsense approach to the design of these tonearms, building ease of adjustment and use and high-quality parts into the designs.

Ortofon AS Series Tonearms

Ortofon’s AS series static-balance tonearms feature high quality materials and construction, combined with a nod to analog’s past, for precise sound reproduction combined with a modern-vintage aesthetic.  AS series tonearms can be used for a wide array of phono cartridges (SPU phono cartridges require an additional counterweight, sold below) and feature anti-skating control and easy adjustment for vertical tracking angle and stylus rake angle.  DIN-to-RCA phono cable included.  Headshell NOT included.  See below for available headshell models.

Ortofon TA Series Tonearms

The latest additions to the Ortofon tonearm lineup, the TA-110 is a 9 inch effective length tonearm, and the TA-210 is a 12 inch effective length tonearm.   Both variants are designed to provide a wide range of tonearm mass configurations simply by changing headshells and by use of the supplied Extra Mass Ring with the TA-210.   

The Ortofon TA Series tonearms are unique in the fact that the arm wand is injected with a special rubber damping material. This results in superior resonance control that is equal to that of tonearms costing much more.  Both the Ortofon TA-110 and the TA-210 feature a gimbaled bearing system and they are statically balanced.  

All Ortofon headshell models will fit the TA Series tonearms, and the LH-2000E headshell is supplied with both models.  A mounting template is also included, as is the 6NX-TSW1010 high purity tonearm cable. Both TA Series tonearms can be adjusted using both Baerwald and IEC alignment geometry.

TA-110 Both TA Series tonearm models
come with a storage box, tonearm cable, and headshell.




TA-210 The TA-210 includes an Extra Mass Ring.

Adapter For Use With A-Type Phono Cartridges

The AP J-1 adapter is designed to allow users of Ortofon tonearms that are installed and set up for SPU phono cartridges to use A-Type phono cartridges as well by compensating for the difference in length of the phono cartridges.  High quality parts and connectors are used throughout to prevent the degradation of the signal from the phono cartridge.  The AP J-1 is very much indispensible for those who want to experiment with different cartridge types.

Retail Price:  $120.00

ST-80 SE Moving Coil Step Up Transformer

The ST-80 SE delivers a detailed reproduction with a touch of warmth accompanied by a full bodied sound quality. Compared to most moving coil transformers currently on the market, the ST-80 SE has a larger bobbin, more layers in the Permalloy core, and more coil windings.

The transformers are magnetically shielded in a Permalloy case, which in turn is inserted into a robust 10 millimeter thick cylinder bored out of a solid aluminum block. Together with the heavy metal case this construction technique effectively isolates the transformers from resonance and vibration.

The stability of the transformer is superb thanks to its substantial weight of 1.5kg, ensuring it stays in place even when cables are attached.

The ST-80 SE is built as a true dual mono design, ensuring maximum channel separation, and weighs a substantial 1.5 kilograms.

The internal point-to-point wiring is Teflon insulated, solid-core, gold-plated, pure OFC copper. Together with high quality gold-plated RCA jacks with Teflon insulation, optimum signal transmission and integrity is insured.

The ST-80 SE is a perfect match for most high quality moving coil phono cartridges on the market today, including Ortofon’s own A90, Xpression, Windfeld, and Cadenza Series models, as well as many of the SPU models.
