  • Tone-Arm Cables
    The tone-arm cable is an integral link in the vinyl replay chain. Too often poor cable and connectors are provided with the new tone-arm, compromising replay quality. We only stock tone-arm cables that we have heard and used ourselves. These cables, from Furutech and Oyaide, are engineered to out-perform competing products; and we have yet to hear anything better. The Mains Cables R Us reference Technics SL1210 uses an SME 309 tone-arm with Oyaide PA-2075 tone-arm cable. A wonderful sounding cable at any price.
  • Turntable Mats &...

    Vinyl is dead, long live vinyl! The basic principles of turntable construction have remained roughly the same since the arrival of the Garrard 301 and 401 in the 1960s. Idler-drive, belt-drive or direct-drive, all have a place in the modern hi-fi system: but what has changed fundamentally is the turntable mat. From a simple piece of commercial rubber or felt on the earliest decks we now have the latest innovation, the Oyaide MJ-12. Manufactured from Aluminium, to own it is to love it; a stunning piece of audiophile engineering. And partnered with the complementary STB-MS weight, the results are even more impressive.
