The Cantus is a tonearm with a unipivot bearing where the arm is not actually a wand but is made up of a visually fascinating mechanical framework. This reduces the ubiquitous resonances to an absolute minimum.
The counterweight is made of tungsten allowing the tracking weight to be adjusted very easily and reliably. The suspended counterweight design and the breadth of the frame around the bearing make for perfect balancing of the horizontal tracking angle without the need for complex adjustment.
The Cantus is available in two versions: a 9-inch version with an effective length of 229 mm (pivot-to-spindle distance 212 mm) and a 12-inch model with an effective length of 306 mm (pivot-to-spindle distance 293.5 mm).
