Reed 3P has most features of the other arms and in addition, it has VTA adjustment on-the-fly, also a unique possibility of adjusting azimuth while playing a record. An exciting thing about the azimuth adjuster is that during the adjustment process the cartridge “swings” around the needle tip, hence keeping all other tonearm parameters intact.
Magnetic antiskating and some other features, used in Reed 3P, were developed in our Reed Mag prototype model*, which made its first appearance in Analog Forum 2011 Krefeld, Germany.
Another 3Ps innovation is its bearing system. Although tonearm bearing system can be considered as gimbal, it acts like unipivot one. However, major difference from unipivot system is that instead of a single pivot three pivots and both vertical and horizontal axis’ magnetic stabilizers are used. Such bearing system is as rigid as gimbal, but its friction coefficient is as low as in unipivot.
Again, if you are bored with this technical talk, it is enough to know that in Reed 3P you can setup most of the tonearm’s parameters (VTA, azimuth, antiskating) on the fly, and due to the very sensitive bearing system you will not miss the slightest music tones.
