Home of The Wand Tonearm. Since being launched in late 2011 it has picked up a BEST Design Award (New Zealand) and numerous Five Star reviews around the world. It is available as in 9.5in, 10.3in and 12in lengths and in two specification levels: The Wand Plus and The Wand Master Series. The Wand Unipivot Tonearm® represents a step change in tonearm design. This is not your grandmother’s ‘gramophone’. Its large diameter carbon-fibre arm tube makes it at least four times stiffer than ‘traditional’ arms.
