Thiele not Accuton – Helmut Thiele's new twosome is the TA01 zero-tracking-error arm [€9'500] and matching TT01 turntable [€10'000 without arm]. The arm endeavors to combine the best of uni pivot and tangential geometries for minimal tracking error. Two parallel carbon-fiber tubes decouple by gel spacer, the custom arm board is aluminium and available for different tables. Thiele's own table's plinth is a triple-layer constrained affair, the motor electronics are a collab with Volpe Audio's Walther Fuchs. First availability is September.
