Description

We are pleased to stock Jelco’s new range of tonearms.  The TS-550 tonearms are direct replacements for the old SA-750 series, retaining the fluid damping facility of those arms, but with a new colour scheme and smarter finish.   The headshell is Jelco’s entry-level HS50 model, which lacks azimuth adjustment; the counterweight is a single piece items which does not share the sliding adjustable mass of the ‘knife edge’ TK series arms.  Jelco have tweaked the geometry of these arms very slightly in comparison with the old 750 series, but importantly the mounting arrangements and spindle-pivot distance are the same as before, so these new arms are direct drop-in replacements for a Jelco SA-750 or SA-250, and there is plenty of adjustment available at the headshell to ensure accurate alignment to whichever alignment geometry you prefer.  The good news about Jelco’s slight changes to geometry is that, according to our calculations, an Ortofon SPU with integrated headshell fitted to the new TS series arms will be aligned correctly.

Jelco have built their reputation for fine finish and quality at reasonable prices, and these new arms build on that very nicely.
