ISOkinetik ISO 1000 OEM RB 1000 UPGRADED TONEARM
THE ARM HAS BEEN REWIRED USING THE ISOKINETIK ISOTONE CARDAS SINGLE RUN FROM CLIPS TO PLUGS
THE ARM ALSO HAS BEEN UPGRADED WITH ISOWEIGHT (best bang for buck HI FI World magazine)
The ISO 1000 is the flagship of the OEM ISOkinetik tonearms and kept in stock for customers looking for the very best possible specification ISOkinetik Turntable
The ISO 1000 also works well on most turntables including offerings from Rega, Michel, Systemdek, VPI and of course the Linn LP12 to name a few
The ISOkinetik ISO1000 was reviewed in the Feb 2010 edition of Hi Fi World magazine, and also in a tonearm group test in Hifi World magazine 2012 copies available on request
The ISOkinetik ISO1000 can be seen in the article on the ISOkinetik ISOvert 3P 3 point VTA adjuster suitable for this tonearm the VTA adjuster is not included
The ISO1000 has ISOkinetik ISOtone Cardas rewire kit fitted and ISOweight counterweight upgrade
To quote Hi Fi World magazine " The sound quality reproduced from this arm is fantastic, which only goes to prove that , as someone once said to me, there is always something more that can be extracted from a good mechanical analogue recording medium, such as an LP,
At around £1,000 (or less for OEM variants such as the identical ISOkinetik !SO1000), it competes very favourably with other arms and upgraded hybrids with a four-figure price tag. Neville roberts
The award winning 1000 tonearm takes almost twenty times longer to produce than a 301. At present there are only two highly experienced technicians that can build this exotic tonearm.
A "blue printing" parts and assembly process is used resulting in zero tolerance engineered assemblies offering ultimate performance.
The bearings fit on to ground shafts and into the tonearm using interference fits. This means that no adhesive is required and therefore none of the associated (component - adhesive - component) losses in rigidity prevail. It is fitted to the plinth by a 3-point fixing which is CNC machined out of a single solid block of Stainless steel. This provides the strongest most rigid base structure possible for the tonearm and causes less stress on the plinth and the bearing housing, and therefore the least possible resonance.
The OEM RB1000 carries all the best technological changes over the last twenty years!
Key areas of improvement can be found in the bearing assemblies, wiring and materials used. We have worked to redistribute and reduce mass in areas of the tonearm where mass is critical to performance. The easiest place to see these changes in evidence would be the polished aluminium arm tube. It has no coatings of any type.
The changes made have resulted in a tonearm with extremely high structural rigidity, combining ultra low friction movement together with incredible stability. These attributes will make any cartridge mounted on this tonearm work harder than they have ever worked before. Do not be surprised if the first time you listen to familiar music, you hear detail that you have not heard before.
PLEASE NOTE YOU MAY REQUIRE A REGA GEOMETRY ARM BOARD DEPENDING ON THE TURNTABLE
