Based on the award-winning AMG 12J2 12-inch tonearm, 9W2 9-inch tonearm uses a scaled version of AMG’s patented dual-pivot bearing. The vertical bearing, similar to a technique used in helicopter rotors, utilizes two steel wires that allow fine azimuth adjustment while eliminating bearing play. The horizontal axle is a hardened tool steel needle roller bearing and captured multi-ball bearing. The aircraft grade aluminum arm wand is anodized for resonance control and is wired with multi-strand high-purity copper wire. Identical to the 12J2, the 9W2 features magnetic anti-skate and precision locking VTA adjustment.
33mm thick aircraft-grade aluminum CNC machined in-house 33 and 45 RPM speed controlled via backlit capacitive buttons Three leveling feet, adjustable from top side of the plinth Anodized black finish
Hydrodynamically lubricated radial 16mm axle with PFTE thrust pad and integral flywheel Scaled version Viella V12 platter bearing Bearing housing CNC machined from Polyoxymethylene or POM (also known as Delrin®) providing a non-resonant enclosure Bearing housing features fixed spike coupler for mechanical grounding and reduced noise floor
40mm thick platter CNC machined from Polyoxymethylene or POM (also known as Delrin®), a high-tech synthetic POM provides an ideal mechanical impedance match to vinyl eliminating the need for a platter mat Manufactured using a special “SMARTEST” process for greater precision, cost-effectiveness, and high finish quality Platter surface machined for record label and bead to optimize coupling the LP record with AMG clamp De-coupled record spindle further isolates stylus in the groove from extraneous vibration
