Be aware that this board IS NOT identical to our board for Linn, Linn's pivot-to-spindle distance is 211mm while Jelco SA-50 and 250 have a distance of 210mm, just one millimetre but it might make a difference when you will need to perfectly calibrate your cartridge, for instance with our high-precision arc protractors.
This board is made of high-quality perspex, laser cut and hand finished and is the perfect match between your Systemdek turntable and your tonearm.
This board is a snug fit for the Linn tonearm and for the turntable's fixing screws, respect of the strict offset is guaranteed.
On the market you’ll find different arm boards made from different materials, we choose perspex for various reasons:
1) Resonance, aluminium boards are very nice and sturdy but have a high resonance frequency, besides they tend to transmit high-frequency vibration to the arm, while MDF or wood damps too much with a loss in high frequencies definition and muddier bass tones. Perspex is still very rigid but damps unwanted vibrations maintaining sound definition.
2) Aesthetics, the high gloss finish will give your turntable an even more classy look.
The board is supplied with MDF spacers to fit your Systemdek perfectly, a simple instruction sheet is included with every board.
All our boards carry a two years warranty against any material of manufacture defect, of course, you can return you board within 30 days if you change your mind or you discover that the board does not fit your need or meet your expectations.Of course, the tonearm, turntable and cartridge showed in some pictures are NOT included
