The Clearaudio Tracer tonearm may look beautifully minimalistic, yet beneath its sleek design you’ll find a wealth of workmanship and a raft of smart details.
Drawing on engineering tricks from the finest watchmakers, it features a high-precision, low friction jewelled bearing, judiciously crafted from tungsten and sapphire. The carbon tonearm tube is both extremely rigid and very lightweight, giving a perfect combination of stability and agility. What’s more, the Clearaudio Tracer’s elegance does not come at the expense of usability – on the contrary.
The anti-skating force is effortlessly adjustable by way of a simple dial within perfect reach, while the aluminium headshell allows the azimuth to be easily fine-tuned. The counter-weight is under slung providing an optimal centre of gravity and allowing straightforward adjustment of the tracking force.
The Clearaudio Tracer is available in a choice of silver carbon or black carbon.
