Ortofon TA-210 Tonearm


Product Description

The new Ortofon TA-210 tonearm has gone to the next level of reducing unwanted vibrations in the tonearm by adding more damping material in more places when compared to it's younger sibling, the TA-110. Ortofon's extensive knowledge of vibration properties and characteristics in different shapes and materials has been applied for optimization of the TA-210 tonearm

The TA-210 is given a precision machined slit in each end of the aluminum tube. A piece of Ortofon special vibration damping compound is integrated into each slit. The bottom slit has rubber inserts with high vibration damping properties, and the other top-facing slit has a special proprietary TPE compound with excellent damping properties. Due to the use of these two different materials, an extended damping effect is obtained in the largest possible range. Both inserts integrated in the tonearm tube are manufactured at the Ortofon technical facilities in Nakskov, Denmark.

How to Install the Extra Mass Ring:

The counterweight should be attached onto the rear of the tonearm with the inner number scale facing forward. If the extra mass ring is needed, it must be installed prior to attaching the counterweight to the tonearm. The extra mass ring should be installed on the back of the counterweight and may need to be twisted slightly to facilitate the installation. Ensure that the extra mass ring fits tightly to the thick part of the counterweight.
