Essential Audio's careful checking and design of a custom arm mounting plate, along with arranging local fabrication, enabled a beautiful fit of a Kuzma 4Point tonearm on a Basis Debut vacuum turntable, replacing a Graham Phantom. Soundsmith strain gauge cartridge.
Gary T (Mississauga, Ontario)
Kuzma Stabi S turntable with external power supply option, Kuzma Stogi S 12 VTA tonearm, and Shelter 501 Mk III cartridge.
Geoff W (California)
We relished the opportunity to design the first installation ever in the world of a Kuzma 4Point tonearm on an SME 30/2, preparing an accurate engineering drawing for Kuzma to machine a blank armboard for the turntable. Everything fit perfectly, and with our careful setup and alignment in the customer's home we had another happy customer.

We sold this remarkable system and spent 3 days setting it up and dialing it in. Kuzma Stabi XL4 turntable with Air Line linear tracking tonearm and 4Point tonearm.

John purchased an Aurender W20 music server and Bricasti M1 DAC as well as a full complement of Clarity Cable power cords throughout the system and a Clarity Cable USB cable between server and DAC. He upgraded the Kuzma turntable with the platter upgrade and external power supply and replaced the tonearm with a Kuzma Stogi S 12 VTA and the cartridge with a Shelter 90X.
