The TA-210 is given a precision machined slit in each end of the aluminum tube. A piece of Ortofon special vibration damping compound is integrated into each slit: Rubber inserts with high vibration damping properties and Special proprietary TPE compound with excellent damping properties are integrated respectively in the bottom and top slit of the arm tube. Due to these two different materials an extended damping effect is obtained in the largest possible range. Both inserts integrated in the tonearm tube are manufactured at the Ortofon technical facilities in Nakskov, Denmark.
TA-210 armtube is a lot less stressed than conventional armtubes due to the Technical rubber and TPE excellent damping properties.
TA-210 is a static balanced gimbal type arm, easy to use and adjust for optimal VTF settings
TA-210 has a standard 5-pin DIN connector for tonearm cable
The tonearm geometry allows for a Baerwald alignment (also the IEC recommendations)
Counterweight with Inner/outer scale
Inner scale to be applied with main counterweight
Outer scale to be applied when extra mass ring is added
Counterweight will work with headshell+cartridge mass approximately in the range 20 to 28g
TA-210 is fitted with a standard headshell connector and can easily be adjusted in accordance with the included mounting template
Extra mass ring for heavier cartridge and headshell combinations included (the extra mass ring may need to be attached to achieve proper tracking force)
Extra mass ring weight 45g
