CLEARAUDIO SATISFY CARBON FIBER TONEARM
“…the Satisfy and Tracer have the same origin was unmistakable…in terms of sound… the Satisfy-whose name, after all, is self-explanatory.” – Matthias Böde, Stereo Germany
The Satisfy CF (Carbon Fiber) tonearm is the ultimate expression of the Satisfy tonearm for use with our Concept, Concept Wood, and Performance DC turntables. A carbon fiber arm tube is exceptionally light and rigid, reducing resonance for enhanced clarity. The handmade Swiss vertical and lateral bearings, adopted from the watch industry, are composed of polished tungsten points against sapphire thrust pads.
A two-piece aluminum headshell with adjustable azimuth allows the accurate alignment of sophisticated stylus shapes for best stereo imaging. Anti-skating control is applied by an innovative non-contact magnetic system that acts on the side of the bearing housing. Clearaudio’s hardwired Direct Wire tonearm cable assures signal integrity, ideal for our cartridges including Maestro, Charisma, Essence and Talismann.
