What Reed Say

Reed 2G is our latest tonearm model, which merges the best features of Reed 2A and Reed 3Q tonearms and adds a few new ones.  Reed 2G is very easily adjusted and can be mounted to virtually any turntable with or without an adapter.

As other our tonearms, Reed 2G features 0.2 mm precision VTA adjustment and tonearm’s height can be adjusted from 28 mm to 48 mm.

Tonearm has cardanic bearing system: vertical axis has thrust rotation bearings and horizontal axis is based on thrust pivot bearings (a bit close to Reed 3P). Such bearing construction eliminates bearing wobbling, which has a great impact to the quality of the sound.

All Reed 2G tonearms have unique azimuth adjustment system, which allows implementing a tonearm with replaceable armwand. Replaceable armwand feature allows you to change tonearm effective length and effective mass with no hassle. For connecting the armwand and tonearm body, high quality LEMO connector is used.

As well as all our tonearms, Reed 2G has replaceable headshells.

Reed 2G can be wired with Finewire C37 cable or have a 5-pin DIN connector for a custom cabling solution.

Tonearm’s antiskating is magnetic and is similar to one used in Reed 3P tonearm.

What We Say

Our demonstration arm is a 12″ 2G with Cocobolo wand.  Like the 3P, it comes in a nicely made but not ostentatious plywood box, and packed in very accurately laser-cut foam material (think SME packaging quality).  The arm is very simple to mount and set up because Reed provide simple and clear instructions, and a template for setting the ‘at rest’ position of the arm tube.  The physical quality and finish of the 2G are beyond excellent – this is absolutely top line stuff.  Installing a cartridge is easy because you can do it with the arm tube set aside from the main structure (the wires are captive but that’s no problem).  Setting tracking force, SRA and azimuth are all very easy – SRA can be adjusted on-the-fly, and azimuth is easily changed by rotating the arm
