AMG 12J2 TONEARM

The award winning AMG 12J2 12” tonearm features our patented dual-pivot bearing: The vertical bearing, similar to a technique used in helicopter rotors, utilizes 2 steel wires that allow fine azimuth adjustment while eliminating bearing play. The horizontal axle consists of a hardened tool steel needle roller bearing. The aircraft grade aluminum armwand is anodized for resonance control. The 12J2’s internal wiring is multiple stranded high-purity copper, and features magnetic anti-skate and precision locking VTA adjustment.

9W2
9" Tonearm Only

$ 27,999
Based on the award winning AMG 12J2 12” tonearm, the new 9W2 9” tonearm use a scaled version of our patented dual-pivot bearing. The vertical bearing, similar to a technique used in helicopter rotors, utilizes 2 steel wires that allow fine azimuth adjustment while eliminating bearing play. The horizontal axle is hardened tool steel needle roller bearing. The aircraft grade aluminum armwand is anodized for resonance control. Identical to the 12J2, the new 9” tonearm’s internal wiring is multiple stranded high-purity copper, and features magnetic anti-skate and precision locking VTA adjustment. The 9W2, with a pivot to spindle distance of 211mm, is designed for the Linn LP-12, as the second arm on an AMG Viella 12 using the TWIN armboard with OVAL SME mount adapter, or other turntables that accommodate this length.

About:

Bearing:

12JT Turbo
12" Tonearm Only

$ 67,999
The 12JT Turbo expands upon AMG’s patented tonearm design with improved sound and functionality. The new larger bearing assembly houses both the unique vertical bearing and a larger horizontal axle, featuring dual micro-ball bearing assemblies for enhanced stability and reduced friction. All critical parameters of the 12JT Turbo are accomplished with calibrated locking thumbscrews for added rigidity and precise adjustment. The 12JT Turbo is available with the Viella V12 turntable as the AMG V12 Turbo package, and can be fitted to other turntables with our CIRCLE Linn-style or OVAL SME-style adaptors.
