DETAILS

"The Kuzma 4Point 9 is the four-point bearing concept stripped to its bare bones, without the longer tonearm and on- the-fly VTA adjustment. The performance of the Kuzma 4Point 9 is therefore a direct result of that bearing technology. And – stripped to its core – the four-point bearing is a real star. We already sort of knew that from its older brothers, but bringing this technology down to more real-world levels, it suddenly becomes throws the sonic limitations of conventional unipivot and gimballed-bearing tonearms into sharp focus. It also brings the absolute top-end of tonearm design down to a far wider audience. Finally, if you have a Kuzma Stabi of any vintage, and can’t quite make the financial or size commitment to the bigger 4Points, this is by far the best arm you can buy. Highly recommended, and a new reference point irrespective of cost – this might just be the best arm you can buy today." -

4Point 9 is a shorter version of 4Point tonearm. Due its 9 inch length and lack of VTA tower it makes this tonearm lighter and smaller thus capable of fitting on most suspended or smaller turntables.

Differs from other  tonearms by introducing several new and unique features.  The new zero-play bearing is configured on 4 points.  The 4POINT tonearm has an effective length of 229mm (9-inch) and fits our standard mount with a 212mm   pivot-to-spindle distance.  The heart of this new design is the unique 4-point bearing. Two points (which are similar to a uni-pivot bearing) allow and control vertical movements of the tonearm. The other set of two pointed bearings allow and control horizontal (lateral) movements of the tonearm.  All four points of the bearing have minimal friction and zero-play in all planes of movement, thus ensuring that the cartridge platform and the cartridge itself follow the grooves of an LP with extremely low friction and minimal vibrations.

The main tube is accurately machined out of a solid rod of aluminium as in our Air Line parallel tracking tonearm.  

4POINT’s arm balancing solution consists of two counterweights – the main weight allows an accurate overall balance once the cartridge has been installed, while the second, smaller weight provides extremely fine further adjustment for total tracking force accuracy.
