Moerch MORCH DP8 -- Gorgeous
Hans Henrik Moerch visited us in Chicago a few days ago and worked all the time at my office. He is a true artist and we are proud to be associated with him. Moerch DP8. New and demo model available. Moerch DP-8 Anisotropic. The best Moerch - beats arms well over its price point. In fact, I can say that confidently about all three models of Moerch tonearms (DP8, DP6, and UP4). Available in gold, chrome and limited edition black. Anisotropic because the effective mass for the horizontal mode of motion is many times higher than the effective mass for the vertical mode of motion. – No matter the effective mass of the armtube used. Took years of research and refinement to build this beauty. For a review, please click on Moerch DP8 Review Model DP-8 Anisotropic has a unique combination of bearings: For the horizontal mode of motion a silicone damped, high precision ball-bearing assembly with large housing for substantial damping. Two precision sapphire bearings are incorporated for the vertical mode of motion. This also may be damped, if desired, by injecting silicone fluid into a well for vertical damping. Vertical damping is rarely needed for this model. It is independent of the damping of the horizontal mode of motion, and further it can be adjusted to all intermediate levels of damping. Model DP-8 Anisotropic has a device for adjusting the VTA while playing integrated. Markings for “getting back” to a special setting is provided. The large effective mass for the horizontal mode of motion is stabilizing the the armtube horizontally, so that at very low frequencies it is only the cantilever of the cartridge, that is moving – not the tonearm. This means that the bass goes all the way down reproducing all the bass on the record with full amplitude and dynamics.

Aural Harmony 99.999% Pure Silver Tonearm Wire Set 24" ...
Aural Harmony"Harmonically Pure, Musically Transparent...hear what you've been missing" ™ Available in custom lengths up to 2 meters. Contact us for details about our wireWe are one of only a handful of audio companies who manufacture their own raw wire. From the selection of precious metal casting shot, to drawing of the wire, to polishing and gold plating all fabrication stays in our family’s hands. Because of this we keep the cost of manufacturing down and can experiment with new wire styles without the huge cost of large minimum orders. If you find a need for a special wire gauge we do not offer feel free to call for a quote, you may be pleasantly surprised at the price. Visit and like us on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Aural-Harmony/210330569059603 about this design You are looking at our 24" 99.999% (5n)Pure Silver and Teflon Ultra-flexible tonearm wire set ( each set consists of 4 wires, attached to each wire is our custom cast pure copper and 24kt. gold plate cartridge clips which can be easily attached to the phono cartridge pins. (Each wire can be easily trimmed to match the length that is needed by your tonearm) Also included with the tonearm wire set is a High-Purity 4% silver solder supplied to us by the wire manufacturer, this allows an almost seamless transition between the wire and its connecting points. Some delicate soldering skill is required when using this wire. The 32.7ga. (0.186 mm) 99.999% (5n) wire used in the construction of this tonearm wire set is made for us by a company that specializes in high-end audio and RF specific silver wire technology.(Aerospace microwave and Medical imaging) What makes this wire so special in my view is not only the purity of the silver, but the special way it is manufactured. The wire starts out by being drawn thru a 31ga.die, after being drawn, the wire is polished not once like our other wires but three times to reduce its size down to 32.7ga. The idea behind this is to remove as many possible aberrations in the wire as possible, if more "pits " or "valleys" are found than acceptable by the manufacturer the wire is scraped and re smelted. After the wire passes inspection it is coated with an anti-tarnish liquid and placed into ultra-flexible Teflon tubing. Each tonearm wire set has a serial number on it which is given to us by the manufacturer, this number shows the date of manufacture and spool run number of the wire. Specifically designed for microvolt level signals, this wire has no peers...absolutely beautiful transparency, resolution, and transient response. The music reproduced through our wire has a very "right" pace and rhythm to it. TOTALLY neutral, this wire will reveal all things in your system. Soundstage width, depth, AND height so palpable that with your eyes closed you will swear you are at the performance. After break-in (about 150 hours of play time under these small voltage conditions) you will hear a transparency and smoothness from top to bottom with absolutely no brightness or hard edge...and the midrange, it is total liquid beauty. There is no magic here just the result of high purity silver and a long crystal structure. I am not bragging or over stating the musical quality of this wire, all you need to do is check our feedback to grasp the total picture. shipping information Shipping and insurance via USPS Priority Mail is $5.00 for delivery in the U.S.A.

I can honestly say that I'll miss having them around...Once again our thanks" From Judy Spotheim (Owner, Designer) Spotheim-SpJ, The Finest Quality Turntables in the world. ( http://www.spj-laluce.com/products.htm ) Hello Don, By now the SpJ Passive preamplifier (Control centre with the three inputs and the two outputs that utilize the DACT attenuator and the Elma gold selector) is matured. The wire ( Cryo Gold Alloy ) is great ! I enjoy the sound. Its GOOOOOOOOOOOOOD… … !!! and in combination with my ALBA turntable and the LYLA arm, things really are amazing (Stage presence, tonality, etc…) Best Regards, Judy From Peter Keil: “Received the two new sets of Cryo Gold Alloy Sonnet II interconnects yesterday. They are beautifully made and a credit to your workmanship. I fitted them last night and listened again to my favourite music. Even without burning in, an improvement was immediately evident. Acoustic solo guitar highs have now a “shimmering” quality, each singer in unaccompanied choral work is distinctly resolved, solo piano has that wonderful “bite” of the real instrument, and all traces of listener fatigue over hours of listening, have gone. The quality of reproduction, now even more revealing, is so good that there is no sense of “ too loud”. Cranking up the volume now means more amplitude but no attendant distortion/noise/pain. I feel that my system is working near its optimum and I’m very pleased & satisfied. I have had the opportunity to try very very expensive interconnects before I tried yours. I always knew my system could do better, but not at any price. Your interconnects are as good, if not better, than some of the biggest names in cable. For my money, they’re an absolute bargain. I look forward to many more hours of listening pleasure.” We are a quiet motion in this great thing called music, trying to bring the best to you in the simplest and most cost effective way as possible. No, you won’t find fancy packaging or polished wooden boxes. Usually we just ship with a paper wrapping and place it in a box or USPS envelope. However if you would like a special cover on our cables please let us know and we will be happy to accommodate you.

ViV Laboratory Rigid Float /CB - BRAND NEW Version with...
The latest version of the Rigid Float tonearm, the brand new "Rigid Float /CB" is in. Besides some minor updates the new version is identical to the original version, same unique features. But the most important difference and a major upgrade is the newly developed tonearm wand, which is made of carbon. It is extremely lightweight with a very high stiffness and favorable resonance characteristics. We were shocked about the improvement in performance of the already fantastic sounding original Rigid Float tonearm. 120 years of vinyl and still revolutionary ideas to optimize playback... ViV lab’s latest product is a tonearm of remarkable performance with unusual and very innovative features. The Rigid Float tone arm won "Product of the Year 2013 Award" in Germany (image hifi) and the "Most Wanted Component 2013 Award" in the US (StereoTimes) and Stereophile’s "Recommended Component Award 2014".Clement Perry wrote: "...I too must concur with Stephen’s assessment of this unique and innovative arm. Mine is the 9" variation and it provides a remarkable sense of neutrality coupled with scale and textures never realized from my analogue rig..." Also, check out a new review in the German magazine "LP"...Thomas Schmidt concluded: "...the Rigid Float tone arm improves even the best systems to a quality that hasn’t been heard before - and that by high (such as Van den Hul The Condor) or by extremely low (Miyajima Shilabe) compliance..." "...I cannot say exactly which of the innovations makes the difference, but the Rigid Float tone arm is without a doubt an absolutely, uniquely exceptional phenomenon in analog sound reproduction..." CLICK HERE to check out the review. The Rigid Float tonearm is a brand new STRAIGHT tonearm design with (magneto-fluid) OIL FLOATED PIVOT and NO OFFSET-ANGLE structure. Very easy installation, just to put anywhere - no mounting neccassary. It now comes with the original Nelson Hold headshell. Key features:OIL FLOATED PIVOT - ViV Lab’s original oil floated pivot (magneto-fluid = magnetically induced oil) not only gives perfect bearing performance but also isolates the arm from the vibration via floor or turntable. At the same time this pivot shuts out the reflection of the vibration generated by the stylus. As a result, the sound has highest purity with high dynamics, sharp focus and very low distortion. We are sure no one has ever experienced such a sound from vinyl disks. NO OFFSET-ANGLE STRUCTURE - We believe that elbow shaped arms with offset angle and overhang setting seriously affect the sound quality because of side force fluctuation which can never be cancelled by an anti-skating mechanism. So we dare to choose a completely straight structure. You may ask "...what about tracking errors?", and the answer is - the tracking error is a little bigger but the sound is better. You can hear no distortion even with the 7" model.EASY INSTALLATION - Unlike other tonearms, "Rigid Float/Ha" is very easy to install. You don’t have to drill your turntable plinth. Just put it anywhere on the turntable plinth. You can also put it outside the plinth of your turntable, f.i. the 13" version of the tonearm (template for optimum installation provided).WIRE - Silk jacketed 4N silver inner wire and rhodium plated terminals ensure minimum signal loss.AVAILABLE IN 3 LENGTHS - 7", 9" and 13" and 2 color variations - Black/Metallic and Black/Gold. AZIMUTH - Latest version of the tonearm (Rigid Float/Ha) provides easy Azimuth adjustment. HEADSHELL - The Rigid Float/Ha tonearm comes with ViV Lab’s original "Nelson Hold" headshell. This headshell provides a special "Press Screw" that can be tightened or loosened for resonance control of the cartridge. REVIEWS & FEEDBACK:Roy Gregory, The Audio Beat (Feb. 2015) wrote:"...hearing a record with the Rigid Float has a gloriously unimpeded sense of energy and momentum. Dynamics are quick and crisp, and forward motion has the sort of speed, freedom and grace that I normally associate with sliding on ice. If a really good conventional tonearm is able to corner better, like a sports car on low-profile tires, the Rigid Float makes it seem like there are no corners at all. Musically speaking, this thing just glides through the track..." Michael Fremer, Stereophile (Aug. 2014) wrote:"...the midrange was gloriously smooth and images were rock-solidly three-dimensional. Bass was meaty and full bodied, yet well controlled..." "...my take is that the Rigid Float - either because of its underhung geometry, or its non-grounded bearing system, or both - has a singularly smooth, lush sound that some listeners will instantly crave..." Stephen Yan, The StereoTimes (Oct. 2013) wrote:"...the RF tonearm can be very strongly and enthusiastically recommended!" "...because it is so transparent and neutral, it will brutally and honestly tell you what you may not know about your system, ...it’s like an implacable polygraph device...""You will, definitely and most assuredly, thank the RF for giving the truth to you, at a price which, while not cheap, actually costs less than many high end pick-ups on the market nowadays. From this perspective, and considering the amount of technology and innovation packed into this device, I believe my use of the word ’bargain’ is not misplaced...""...so in case you were interested, yes, I bought the review sample..."Mal Kenney, Part-Time Audiophile - THE Show Newport Beach (June 2013): "...there’s no fixed pivot, no offset, no anti-skate, and a combination of power and subtlety that you’d guess would require a lot more engineering than letting a tonearm float in magnetic oil. Whether the arm’s ability to track without the familiar microdistortion is based on its strange pivot or whether it’s down to the damping... this arm is clearly a performer!"Uwe Kirbach, Image HiFi Germany (Jan. 2013) wrote:"...this arm is nothing short of an audiophile sensation! ...the recordings sound strikingly direct and immediate, with intense dynamics. Drums and percussions come without restraintment, lively, with great three-dimensionality, depth and micro details...""...even when not perfectly setup the Rigid Float always played clean and clear, powerful with authority - it was always immediatley obvious that we have something special here...""...I know of no other similar superior, compatible tone arm. I can’t say what percentage of this is due to the genius bearings and what percent is because of the the skating-free straight arm... The resulting impression of ordinary tone arms is comparable to perfectionizing the chassis of a car on a gravel road, while the Japanese arm glides on asphalt, or better said, on oil."
