The THALES SIMPLICITY II sets the benchmark for what is possible in tonearm-design today. The tracking geometry is based on a unique tetragon solution that reduces the tracking-error to 0,006°. Our new TTF-bearing-technology makes sure the performance achieves a level never reached before, as the micro-ball-bearings are arranged in a tension-free setup. The intrinsic frequencies of the two tonearm tubes are carefully tuned to improve on the damping properties of any single arm tube design.
The SIMPLICITY II comes with a special tool to make sure the installation is as precise as the manu- facturing. The headshell can be removed very easily for exact alignment of the cartridge. Three different counter weights, each with a different mass are sup- plied to enable a wide range of cartridges to be used (7 to 23 grams). The tonearm is available in bronze, grey or black anodized finish and is featured with Thales’s own internal wiring. This wiring is very flexi- ble and made of purest copper. Three different wir- ing terminations are available.
