Add To Cart

The B-5.1 features four high precision micro ball bearings, custom made for Gold Note by GRW-Germany, and designed to enable very low noise quality while  getting the smoothest musical details.
The vertical ball bearings are pivoted through custom stainless steel, manually adjustable, threaded bolts, while the horizontal movement is driven by two micro ball bearings directly inserted in the main rectified pivot of the arm. The arm is secured to the turntable plinth by the arm shaft that has a diameter of 23 mm/0.90 inches.

The B-5.1 tonearm exclusively features a double counterweight allowing  most of the market phono cartridges up to 15 gram mass. Optionally other extra weights are available to handle phono cartridges with higher mass.

The B-5.1 effective length of 223 mm/8.77 inches,  with a 12 mm overhang,  allows easy installation of the arm in any turntable available on the market.
