The new TT-5 linear tracking tonearm with Swing Base features a fixed, rigid construction similar to our Statement tonearm. Like all Clearaudio linear tonearms, it moves tangentially with the record groove pulling the armwand along a polished glass rod on precision rollers. The TT-5 Swing Base allows the entire arm to be swung out of the way when changing records, not compromising rigidity or performance.

About

Why go tangential? 

The TT-5 offers vinyl fans an affordable entry point into tangential tonearm technology. The TT-5 uses a new rigid design to accomplish superb performance and with the Swing Base, allows the entire arm assembly to be swung out of the way when changing records.

In a conventional pivoted tonearm, the arm is moved in an arc across the record’s surface by the stylus following the record groove, requiring a averaging system to minimize tracking error. In Clearaudio’s tangential tonearms, but the arm moves tangentially, with the stylus propelling the tonearm along a linear path by a carriage running on precision rollers inside a polished glass tube.

The cartridge therefore remains parrallel to the record groove, following the same path the cutting head did when making the record, eliminating any lateral tracking error. And since the record groove, stylus, cantilever and tonearm are perfectly aligned, no side forces are generated and no anti-skating compensation is required.

Tracking force and azimuth are easily and finely adjustable so that the cartridge and stylus are always in the perfect position to read the musical information in the record groove.

The affordable solution 

With the TT-5, Clearaudio offers vinyl fans a more affordable entry point into tangential tonearm technology. The TT-5’s surprising and excellent value for money is down to eschewing one or two of the features of its ‘big brothers,’ the TT-2 and TT-3.

For example, the TT-5 adopts a new, fully rigid design. However, for those who still want the convenience the bigger arm’s ability to swing out of the way when loading records, Clearaudio have created the Swing Base which, as its name suggests, allows the entire arm assembly to be swung out of the way when changing records.
