Are longer Tonearms better?

A longer tonearm is better at maintaining the right tracking angle for the needle as it tracks across the record. That’s why Simon Brown of The Wand makes a 10.3″ arm–it’s the best of both worlds, a perfect compromise between a better tracking angle and more rigidity.

Is it bad to put speakers next to turntable?

BAD VIBRATIONS If you put speakers near to or on the same shelf as your record player the vibration of the speakers will undermine the record player’s ability to do its job well.

His fascination with the mechanics of turntable and tonearm design led him to create a tonearm that gives users precise management of every conceivable setup parameter, or, as he calls it, “Primary Control” over adjustability in order to allow a cartridge to retrieve signals accurately.

Why is the tonearm “bespoke tailored” to my specific turntable?

If the idle position of the arm deviates too far from the template’s optional position, the antiskating force may be applied too early or too late, depending on whether the head shell position is too close or too far out relative to the platter. This is why the tonearm is “bespoke tailored” specifically for your specific turntable.
