LP12 / Wand Tonearm / Phasmation PP 500
“Bought some Iso Acoustics Orea Indigo feet under my modded Linn Sondek LP12 with Wand Plus and just updated my Zyx R50 Bloom cart to a Phasemation PP500 cart which is a stunning improvement! Honestly your arm has never failed to reward a lot of improvements and tweaks I've done, getting scary how high a standard of reproduction now, very lifelike or "live" sounding!” Clive AU

A Truly Classic combination! The Wand Classic 10in on an original Linn LP12 with a Denon DL103. Ewan said "Not surprised to report that the Wand sounds terrific, fine balance across the frequencies, a complete and satisfying sound. The most exacting test is the string quartet, and it did the job to perfection, all the parts clear and properly integrated. Faultless!"

One of our UK dealers Summerhouse Sounds has been great fun trying The Wand Tonearm on different turntables. One of their favourites has been on a Linn LP12 with a Koetsu cartridge.

Clive AU; Linn LP12 / Dynavector DV 20X2L / Wand 10.3in …played Herbie Hancock – Gershwins World … had astonishing dynamics and clarity with depth! Cymbals fizz without intruding over other instruments… bass has tautmess with speed and almost sub bass qualities… followed up with Dr John – Creole Moon (Music on Vinyl ), sublime in terms of the above superlatives plus a few more. I was sceptical there would be much of a discernible improvement over my Ittok/ DV 20X2L combo but I stand corrected!
