Almost nothing compares

“Arguably the very best tonearm yet made – a startlingly capable all rounder with none of the vices or quirks of rival super-arms…” HiFi World  full review

One of the very best tonearms on sale at any price, Conqueror is aptly named. Yet this isn’t an overblown, showy performer – it’s not voiced to impress some of the people, some of the time. Rather, it’s exceptionally even-handed and balanced in its presentation and sounds sublime across a wide range of music. An immensely high resolution measuring instrument, it is nevertheless consummately musical and organic sounding. A real ‘fit and forget’ product, no matter what you play, it just dissolves away…

Conqueror is the culmination of many years of research work into tonearm design, and sounds light years ahead of its time. It incorporates a number of idealistic principles into engineering practice, to deliver superlative sonic performance.

Compared to more affordable Origin Live tonearms, it there’s an obvious increase in transparency, and with it a heightened sense of realism. Music sounds more natural and less processed, as if a bright light has been shone on the recording and it’s there in front of you, in all its glory. Yet it confers an uncanny smoothness on the music, too; there’s a wonderful sense of ease and rhythmic ebb and flow. Bass is yet more powerful and defined than Illustrious, which is no small feat. Vocals shimmer with natural timbre, and stereo imaging is almost holographic.

  1. Worth every penny! Review by Paul

    Fitted my new Conqueror to my Avid Sequel last night. Very straightforward process, especially the cartridge alignment and VTA adjustment. Then started playing some of my favourite albums. The arm is quite simply outstanding in all areas. Detail, imaging and bass are streets ahead of anything I've ever heard before, but the biggest surprise was that these are combined with stunning musicality. The sounds coming from my speakers were simply captivating. I went to bed very late and can't wait to get home tonight for a marathon listening session. I'm a very happy bunny!!
