Jelco has introduced a new tonearm to replace the SA-750 L 12 inch used on the PolyTable SUPER12. The New model is the TA-550L It is same tonearm with a few minor changes. A diferent balance weight to eliminate having two and black color only.
All SA-750 tonearms are discontinued.
The Jelco arms are at the top of my favorite list.
The build quality is as good as it gets period.
Their adjustment capability is as comprehensive and easy as you can get (VTF, VTA/SRA, Azimuth with HS-25 or 30 headshell and Anti skating). Many tonearms will not allow azimuth adjustment. This is most important for proper setup. The Jelco SA-750D allows this via the azimuth adjustable head shell (HS-25/ HS-30).
The Jelco tone arms VTA adjustment uses a simple to adjust locking collar, some tonearms use shims a very awkward and time consuming process.
Fluid Damped Gimbal on the TS-550.
If the Tri-Planar is out of your price range take a look at the Jelco.
