$Direct: 1,850 with T8 Arm
The Isolde turntable, named after a Wagner Opera character, is designed for those customers who like a classical style but but don't like all the set-up work. The Isolde continues with the high quality character of all the other Opera Audio turntables. The turntable consists of a super accurate DC motor, a point-to-point low noise bearing, and a solid plinth, with an air ball damping system to make the sound fuller and more relaxing.
The matched carbon fiber T8 9" tone arm is very simple to set-up and adjustment. One only needs to attach their own cartridge, set the recommended stylus weight and VTA and you are ready to go.
T988 and T1288 unipivot
Feature of T988 Tonearm:
The CONSONANCE 9" and 12" tonearms have outstanding performance and great flexibility.
These arms stand directly within our company moto, "Simple Human". Their simplicity is what makes them not only look and feel better but also perform better. With the oil damped pivot these arms can accept almost all types of MM and MC cartridges with no difficulty, heavy or light cartridges are not a problem. We at Consonance have strived to make an afforable arm with a low set up time so that you can enjoy it quickly after getting it. It has a totaly clean look, there are no extra 'gadgets' to get in the way. It is designed for listening pleasure not for it looks, but don't let that fool you. Its looks are very pleasing but the sound is what will really make you satisfied.
We designed the T988 and T1288 as a unipivot-radial design with 2 different arm lengths.
And an affordable price, to make anyone a true audiophile.
Our unique arms have:
1. A single rounded point unipivot bearing
2. Carbon fibre arm tube
3. Oil damping and low mass, excellent for MC cartridges.
4. Separate adjustments for VTA and Azimuth
5. Easy anti-skating adjustment
6. BONUS! We can also offer an extra arm shaft for those who want to have both lengths. That way you can switch between 9" and 12".The extra arm shaft will include the headshell and the top bearing. The tonearm weight can be switched easily between the two arms so an extra one is NOT included.
