On the Simon Yorke Designs website, you cam purchase precision analogue disc transcription systems, a series of gorgeous record players crafted with some bizarre looking needles.
The aeroarm is not for the faint-hearted. It is not a fit it and forget it device. It was neither designed as a 'product' nor propaganda of promises. It will not buy you time nor ease your life. Indeed, it may drive you crazy... So, what is it?
The aeroarm is a sonic microscope, an instrument for extracting information stored in analogue record grooves. It does this without judgement, simply doing what it says on the tin without flattery, prejudice or desire.
The aeroarm is approximately 4.6 times smaller than a conventional tonearm. This means that errors (both in cartridge alignment and inherent to the discs themselves) normally drowned by the sheer mass of a conventional tonearm are magnified by a factor of 4.6 by the aeroarm. Alignment parameters must therefore be set with far greater diligence than normal (forgiveness was never a part of the aeroarm?s brief).
