Tonearms

The home of arguably the finest precision gramophone tonearms in the world.
To own a Glanz product is to possess a jewel of near perfection in both performance and construction.

Glanz - The Best Tonearm In The World ?  We think so !
 

MH-9B, 10B  B Series Tonearm

This is the entry level arm which gives a taste of the legendary Glanz sound but at an affordable price.  Available in a 9" version for European and USA turntables and also in a 10" version for the Japanese super-decks.

The arm tube and vertical shaft parts (which greatly influence sound quality) are made from stainless steel.
Along the main conduction tube we have reproduced a material close to stainless steel supplement, using brass with a tough chrome plating.
The fulcrum is strongly supported with radial bearings.
The anti-skate mechanism is insulated with ABS resin, and reduces reverberation distortion.

 MH-94S, 104S, 124S  S Series Tonearm

This is the premium arm that UK HiFi luminaries have said "it's the best tonearm I have ever heard" it certainly outruns the industry standard pick-up arms we have used in the past !  Available in 9" version for European and USA turntables, also in a 10" version for the Japanese super-decks and a 12" version for the ultimate turntable.

To eliminate reverberating sound, we do not use springs in the anti skate bias section. (Springs create an echo).
We have blocked out reverberating sound with a powerful vibration absorbing/damping structure inside the arm tube and other structures.
Various parts are joined/connected across the surface, not just at points. The four fulcrums that support the sound quality are supported by four large bearings. In particular, the lower bearing in the direction of the vertical axis utilises high precision thrust bearings; it has a strut structure that allows heavy arms to move with high sensitivity.
The headshell structure is integrated with the plug section in one single piece, enabling the sound to rise well, resulting in crisp sound quality.
There are several layers of vibration absorbing/damping structure around the weight, delivering a clear, deep sound quality with little lingering sound.

MH-124SD  SD Series Tonearm

The “Jewel in the Crown” – the “premium” highest-grade model, acknowledged as delivering the most trusted performance. 
Only available in this 12" version.

In pursuit of the ultimate tone arm for further enhanced performance, we have introduced features that take you beyond the S model, as follows:
Approximately 30 parts are coated in DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) – the sound rise is outstanding.
With the addition of carbon fibre to the arm tube, even more powerful vibration prevention measures are applied
Furthermore, the arm tube uses a thin silver wire of low resistance, and silk roll is used for the coating of the flow line, ultimately damping it with vibration proof materials
Around the weight, a quadruple damper system using different materials has been adopted, and vibration absorption is achieved over a wide range.
