On May 03rd to 06th, Munich's M.O.C. hosts the HIGH END -- one of the largest trade fairs in Europe, dedicated to High-End audio equipment, including, but not limited to, amplifiers, speakers, turntables and lots of various components to please an audiophile ear. Reed was not participating directly in the show, however we are very proud that our products were used by couple of shows participants: Absolare/Echole (makers of outstanding preamplifiers and cables) used our Reed 3P tonearm along with Kodo turntable to demonstrate their products' full potential; and Dr. Feickert Analogue (well-known turntable makers) was showing our Reed 3P on their Firebird turntable.
You can find a few pictures from their setups below:
From now on our tonearms are known not only by their high quality sound, but also acknowledged for their distinctive design. Reed 3P tonearm convinced the international expert jury of the “red dot award: product design 2012” and received the globally sought-after red dot for its fine design language in the “Entertainment technology and cameras” category. After an evaluation process lasting several days, it received one of the coveted awards, assigned by a 30-member expert jury. More than 1,800 creative heads and manufacturers from 58 countries had submitted 4,515 designs altogether to the renowned product competition. With its high design quality, Reed 3P tonearm could inspire the experts.
Reed 3P tonearm is a modern classic example of comeback of vinyl trend. Usage of traditional materials - wood, stainless steel and aluminum - and joining them into one piece of precisely crafted product creates unique visual experience. Its innovative technical design enables changing major tonearm parameters - VTA (Vertical Tracking Angle), cartridge azimuth and antiskating - on-the-fly, i.e. while playing a record. An exciting thing about the azimuth adjuster is that during the adjustment process the cartridge "swings" around the needle tip, hence keeping all other tonearm parameters intact. Reed 3P tonearm also features unique bearing setup, which allows listener to enjoy the slightest music tones.
We just added one more finish option to our Reed tonearm color range - Velvet Bronze. It is named after specific processing method of bronze artwork surface. Being beautiful dark gray color with some warm tones, Velvet Bronze finished Reed tonearm will perfectly fit into your Hi-End system's color palette.
After more than a year of designing, developing and prototyping, we finally completed our newest project - Reed 3P tonearm. It's major features:
- Magnetic antiskating
- Fine VTA adjustment on-the-fly (inherited from Reed 2P)
- Azimuth adjustment on-the-fly
- Innovative bearing system - mix of gimbal and unipivot principle.
