Product Description

Thales Easy High-End turntable arm innovation. Less tracking error & less side forces

Now at True Audiophile.

Thales turntables have compelled analog writers world over to throw up their hands and embrace the beauty of analog that Thales turntables and arms produce. The tables are so extraordinary and precision we couldn't pass them up. There are many options these days in the world of turntables but none better. - TA

"After years of listening to turntables and owning three different linear tracking setups, and admitting my unrelenting, persisting love for a really good 12-inch pivot tonearm, I think either the tonearms from Thales or linear tracking tonearms are solving a real, theoretical and mathematical problem.

In the end, the Thales Slim and Easy is a truly wonderful sounding analogue source and one I could easily live with." -- Jack Roberts, Dagogo Magazine 2016 Full Review

The EASY tone-arm is named, as it is an easy way to enter the world of perfect analogue tracking. The design of the EASY tone-arm enables a variable offset angle and this is based on a newly developed and highly innovative geometry.

The clever arrangement of six bearing points creates three null points for the horizontal tracking error, plus a zero point for the variable offset angle as well and this is really unique for a tone-arm design. This means the cartridge is guided along the ideal tracing line just like that of a parallel tracking tone-arm. As well as perfect tracking, side forces are reduced tremendously and this is clearly audible when listening to the EASY tone-arm.

Each tone-arm will be delivered with a precise protractor for installation and adjustment. Two counter weights are also provided to allow a wide range of cartridges (5 to 20 grams) to be fitted.

TTF-Technology

Based on Thales long lasting experience in building micro-bearings for high end tone-arms, we started in 2012 to develop the TTF (Thales-Tension-Free) technology. This technology should combine the advantages of traditional jewel bearings (damping properties, one point contact and angular alignment) with the benefit of the ball bearing (load resistant, solid). Much research was made before this new technology could be implemented in our tone-arms. TTF technology gives incredibly low friction values, absolute freedom of backlash and as a nice side effect, an integrated shock absorbing system.

Price is for tone-arm ONLY. Cartridges sold separately.
