Sound “There is a unique kind of atmosphere to the Tri-Planar’s sound, an engrossing view of the music that nudges performers closer to a lifelike physical presence…. The Tri-Planar is a musical extrovert, not for what it demands from you while you listen, but rather for what it does — its wholly natural way of unifying the entirety of the performance.” “The Tri-Planar Mk VII UII is about integration of the music’s elements, not parsing of the whole into constituent parts…. It conveys strong outlines and presence in an unwavering fashion that absolutely anchors everything in space.”

Features “The Tri-Planar is essentially two complex subassemblies joined together: the armtube and headshell, and everything behind it, including the gimbal, VTA tower, damping trough and cueing device. The two halves are connected by a machined-aluminum yoke that doubles as part of the azimuth-adjustment hardware.”

Use “The Tri-Planar’s counterweights are not fixed, so there are seemingly myriad combinations and placement options for them — that is, unless you talk to Tri Mai, who will tell you that the largest counterweight, the one with the beveled front edge, should always be placed as far forward and toward the pivot as possible. Any subsequent weights can be placed farther back, creating a gap between them if necessary. Final adjustment is made with the threaded weight at the very end of the tonearm.”

Value The Tri-Planar Mk VII UII “made a very strong case for spending more money on your tonearm than on your cartridge.”
