Stogi 313VTA

Stogi 313VTA

This is the 12-inch Stogi Ref 313 tonearm version with fully adjustable VTA tower mounting on a standard 9-inch position. The Stogi Ref 313 VTA tonearm shares the main features of Stogi Ref and 4 Point tonearm, i.e., precision ball bearings, a conical tube, and a unique VTA tower.

General description:
This is a very rigid medium-mass tonearm with ceramic ball bearings that withstand heavy loads and display low starting and running friction and noise levels. The main frame and all other parts are machined from solid aluminum and brass blocks. Some parts are anodized, and some are not, to help control tonearm resonance. The detachable headshell provides a stable cartridge mounting, while the internally damped tube connects this to the massive bearing parts where any vibration or noise is dispersed. Most parts are glued together for rigidity and damping.

Detachable headshell: The electrical connection is via standard pins, but the headshell can be removed by unscrewing with an Allen key. The headshell is fixed with a unique hexagonal locking system, giving the same rigidity as a fixed headshell.

The conical tube machined from the solid aluminum rod is internally damped and divided into two parts, which, while further aiding damping, also allows for precise azimuth adjustment. A unique mechanism (worm drive) using an  Allen key enables the tube to be rotated back and forth in minimal increments with no air gap. This mechanism is submerged in silicone grease for further damping. A marker line clearly shows the azimuth position and facilitates use while allowing repeated adjustments.

From Edward: High-performance results and a fun arm to use. It is hard to beat for the dollar.
