RE: Got The SP 10 In Plinth With Riggle Arm

It's The String Theory arm from Pete Riggle. I have owned it for about 6 years now, and used it exclusively on my Serac. I have run a wide variety of cartridges on it from Blackbirds, Gliders, Cadenza Bronze, Transsfiguration, Shelter, Grado, and a few others. But my permanent cartridge on it is the ZYX 4D.

It's hard to nail down what an arm should "sound like", because if its perfect it sounds like nothing. It has a wide degree of adjustability with on the fly vta, and on the fly azimuth adjustment also. A damping cup is available for use, and the bearing is an interpretation of the Well Tempered design. There appears no overt resonances present from the wood arm, but if it did have a signature, I would say its shaded to the slightly warm, textured,and refined side. But not overly so. Not a huge amount of information, hope it helps.
