AMG 12JT TONEARM
"From the first LP I played I knew there was something special about how my system sounded with the Turbo tonearm…It controls the cartridge in a way that makes a recording sound more focused, more powerful and more beautifully detailed than I had heard from my system before." - Jack Roberts, Dagogo USA
“...represents a major ergonomic improvement to the original, ingenious design.” – Michael Fremer, Analog Planet USA
The 12JT Turbo represents the latest innovations in the AMG tonearm product line. Expanding upon the success of its predecessor the 12J2, the 12JT features a new larger bearing housing and calibrated locking thumbscrews, allowing you to make all critical tonearm adjustments by hand. The 12JT uses the vertical bearing design, based on helicopter rotors, found in all AMG tonearms. Improvements to the horizontal axle using upper and lower multi-ball bearing assemblies with the hardened tool steel and precision ground shaft, provides greater stability.
The AMG Turbo tonearms include our machined cartridge alignment gauge and electronic stylus gauge, working together with the tool-free, calibrated, locking thumbscrews, to optimize phono cartridge performance.
