The combination of efficiency and design
B-5.1 is an elegant and performing arm, designed, produced and assembled by hand in Italy using the best machinery and the most suitable materials available. Behind its ease of use, B-5.1 hides sophisticated technical solutions to achieve excellent sonic results.
Equipped with 4 precision micro-bearings produced in Germany by GRW to Gold Note’s precise technical specifications, the arm minimizes noise and friction while at the same time being able to extract every musical detail from the vinyl groove.
With its 23mm diameter insertion pin and an actual length of 242mm, B-5.1 is easy to install on any quality turntable that equips 9” arms.
The double counterweight allows you to mount a wide variety of heads up to 15 grams in weight, and possibly exceed this limit by adding additional optional weights.
The quality of the materials used, such as the finely worked 6000 aluminium alloy, allows B-5.1 to achieve structural rigidity and non-deformability and fully satisfy the most demanding customers.
The micro-bearings of the vertical movement of the arm are inserted on stainless steel pins specifically designed and manually adjusted.
The horizontal movement bearings are inserted into the central pivot pin of the arm which is made from a single body of turned solid aluminum.
The B-5.1 arm, the result of careful engineering down to the smallest detail, reproduces sound in a natural, detailed and refined way.
