Graham Engineering Phantom Elite 12 Inch Tonearm with SME Fixed Mount and Gold Accents - IN STOCK. Cable not included. Pictured is the standard finish.
Based on the uni-pivot design Graham Engineering has perfected over the past 20 + years, the Graham Phantom Elite uses the point down damped uni-pivot bearing manufactured to spec in Switzerland, Magneglide stabilizer/azimuth adjuster, calibrated VTA adjustability with built-in spirit level, detachable arm wand in 9", 10" and 12" lengths with Grahams cartridge alignment gauge.
The Graham Phantom Elite has a new, larger bearing housing for better resonance control with updated internal wire, larger diameter arm wand with updated internal wire, newly designed decoupled counterweight, new CA-9 height-adjustable cartridge alignment gauge available for 9", 10" or 12" arms.
"Although the basic design principles, thinking, and features of Bob Graham's classic Phantom unipivot tonearm remain unchanged, the Elite represents a substantial upgrade from previous iterations, with improvements in materials and implementation, constrained-layer damping in the pivot assembly, a new high-density, non-magnetic tungsten insert for zero-tolerance bearing-contact and high spurious-energy absorption. No other 'arm known to PS can be more accurately and repeatably adjusted to extract optimal performance from any suitable pickup." - PS, The Absolute Sound, Issue 254
