The Tonearm that's Sharp as a Samurai Blade

New Jelco TK850S at True Audiophile

Jelco TK850S ToneArm with New Knife Edge Bearing.

This arm is getting a lot of attention from Audiophiles for its increased realism, and just an overall 'rightness' to playback. Incredible performace from a relatively inexpensive arm.

Let's start with real-world reviews from actual users:

Absolutely no "play" or tendency to vibrate.

An improvement in soundstaging is immediately obvious as is speed of attack, or rise-time. 

Depth and width are improved. The music is more colorful. 

Trombone sounds more golden than I recall while the guy playing tuba sounds like he is huffing and puffing into the instrument. 

An added realism. Rim shots are faster and snares portray more insight into the rattles -the metal has color and feel...a mechanical quality. Percussion is much improved. 

Surface noise seems reduced, surpassed even. 

Wonderful vocals and very dynamic with jump out of the stage piano fortissimo that I have never heard before. 

Highs better with oodles of detail but no harshness. More black space between notes...

Silence that Table!

Thixar Plus Isolation Platform at True Audiophile
We just put on several turntable isolation platforms that are both exotic and brilliantly done.

We sell so many high-end tables and many mid-range tables that people shouldn't forget about isolation beyond what the TT has. It needs help and your ears will tell you it worked.


The Thixar is a favorite, but we have ones starting at $500 too.

Looks Good Enough to E.A.T.

EAT Jo No.5 at True Audiophile

Looks Good Enough to E.A.T. JO No 5 Moving Coil Cartridge...The No 5 manages to be both rich sounding and exciting. Never snooze- inducing or “soft”. Definitely a fuller, richer, “meatier” sound that I remember from the Quintet Black, which was also relatively “full bodied” for a $1000 MC cartridge. Here you pay a little more and you get more fullness without paying the price of sludgy bass or rhythmic constipation..Michael Fremer Analog Planet, 2018

Everyone who hears this cartridge is impressed. Maybe it time you got one?

Pssst. Want to know what's re-defining Phono Reference?

EAT E-Glo Phono Stage. At True Audiophile.

How good is your TT without a spectacular phono stage? Hmmm. Choked down from a fire hydrant hose to a garden hose. About that level of performance. Usually you're not even hearing you investment.

We're always looking for what crushes at it price and delivers the peformance you need.
Now the press agrees. The EAT E-Glo is the new Reference Standard for its price.

You can read the full review on our site, but here's a taste "How well does a product at any given price point reveal the music played through it? That’s where the E-Glo performs well beyond its price tag, and if you didn’t know better, you’d think this one has a five-figure price tag. Playing side by side up against some phono stages from more established models in the $10k – $13k range, the E-Glo holds its own on all fronts.
