CA VTA Lifter, 775 gram without VTA Lifter The Universal tonearm is handcrafted with the highest possible accuracy. It is designed to be flexible enough to use almost any cartridge. The counterweight system is really nicely designed. It has four counterweights to choose from, and once you choose the right one to match your cartridge, there is a very precise fine-tuning mechanism. Clearaudio has also made adjusting of the azimuth very easy and precise. The tonearm uses very high precision vertical and horizontal ball bearings. It uses the light-weight, but extremely stiff carbon fiber material for the tonearm tube. Unlike the Satisfy Carbon Fiber, tonearm tube on the Universal has three different sections with three different diameters. This tube construction seems to reduce resonance considerably compared to the Satisfy Carbon Fiber or any of the wood tubed arms I have used. This results in a very quiet and solid background. The Universal’s build quality is beautiful, and looks and sounds well-designed.
