If you are looking for an'audiophile' quality tonearm, then look no further. Jelco® tonearms are known for their incredible performance. It was also used in a number of systems, including the CM Labs and LAD (London Acoustical Developments) turntables from the late 80's and 90's.At 239mm, the SA-370 arm is longer in comparison to similar-priced arms listed elsewhere, which measure 229mm or less. It also features a super-lightweight headshell. The Jelco SA-370 tonearm uses wired-in connections terminating in 6 thinly-insulated wire ends.
Four of the wires (blue-red-green-white) are for the cartridge connections, and the two black wires are grounds. The head shell accepts a wide range of cartridges. This type of arm is often referred to as a "Transcription Tone Arm". However it is not a broadcast transcription tone arm, which has to be capable of playing 16 discs.
