The Tangent tonearm gives you all the technical and design benefits of all
the linear tracking tonearms from Clearaudio, but at a very reasonable price.
It uses the same Titanium armwand that the TQ-I uses, and even has a set of
female RCA jacks on the back, which allow you to use any cable you prefer.
Soundscape Price: $2,500
The TQ-I has been in the clearaudio line since the mid 1980s. In this time
it has evolved, but has been the foundation of all research and development,
which has lead to such designs such as the Master TQ-I. The newest version of
this design, the TQ-I represents all of the best design philosophies to date.
Soundscape Price: $4,000
The Master TQ-I represents the pinnacle in performance of the linear tracking
arm design. It incorporates some completely new designs, which include a Quartz
armwand and Quartz shafts for the arm carriage bearings to roll on. The Master
TQ-I truly represents the reference in musical reproduction.

Not sure that you're ready for a linear tracking tonearm? If so, no problem. Clearaudio offers a variety of pivoted tonearms to suit any audiophiles' budget. From the new Unify uni-pivot tonearm that offers performance not before realized at its price point, to modified Rega tonearms that increase the level of performance from an already great sounding product.
Two bearing designs are commonly available in pivoted tonearms: unipivot and multi-point bearings. Unipivot designs have a single point of contact, minimising friction for clear, open musical sound.
The entry into high-end music reproduction is now possible with the new "Unify" Tonearm by Clearaudio. The unique design is built around a unipivot sapphire bearing that sits on top of a precision hardned steel spike. This beautifully finished tonearm offers all the various adjustments necessary, including VTA, anti-skating and Azimuth.
Distinguished construction features of the Unify tonearm include a stainless steel base, and aluminum tonearm bearing housing, and a carbon fibre tonearm tube. The quality of construction and low bearing friction produces world-class sound.
The Unify is available either hard-wired with our Sixstream cable or terminated
with an RCA junction box.
**Now available** 12 and 14 inch versions

wire. Soundscape Prices:
