The Zephyr is a considerable advance on the Silver arm. A stiffer arm tube, and higher grade materials in the yoke and arm base improve the definition and impact of notes, particularly in the bass which is tighter, lower and weightier than the silver. However all aspects of the music are improved by a more sophisticated costly approach to each component.
High grade aircraft alloy tube with internal stiffening and special rear stub for improved counterweight rigidityThe additional arm stiffening serves to further increase dynamics and sense of power and control in the bassSuperior Yoke design – encompassing higher grade material and precision tolerancing of parts. This results in an incredibly transparent arm with superb tonal balance. Finally the yoke is mirror polished and finished in chromeBearing design – gimballed arm using specially treated bearingsThe Threaded base is upgraded from the Silver with a more sophisticated internal design and superior alloyThe Threaded base is upgraded from the Silver with a more sophisticated internal designCounterweight is of a superior alloy to the lower arms to produce deeper bassIntegral VTA adjustmentHigh grade Internal Litz wire for transparencyUpgrade external cable (6mm diameter) with high conductivity RCA plugs to fit into your amplificationEasy to fit – the threaded base mounting makes the arm easy to fit to any armboard designed for Rega arms as it is a drop in replacement for ALL versions of Rega arm whether threaded base or 3 point mountingThere is also an Origin Live SME adaptor which means the arm can be fitted to any SME armboardPredrilled armboards are also available for the Linn LP12.
