Acoustical Systems two years ago introduced the Axiom pick up arm—one of the world’s most sophisticated and expensive. This year AS showed the arm on a "tricked out"La Platine Verdier Granito that had mistakenly been identified by someone in the room as something new from Acoustical Systems. Acoustical Systems will soon introduce less costly pick up arm.
It's easy to tell if a product was designed and produced with heart by looking at the details in the product package. AIOM comes with a beautiful and strong aluminium case. After opening the case, I can see a nicely printed manual and an acrylica made calibrator specially design to Axiom, which are enclosed in a plastic box.
