Tonearm DIN

TAD-88 Tonearm DIN Straight


 We re-engineered the DIN assembly to allow for the individual pins to turn with the direction of the wire during the assembly process reducing the stress on the solder joints and risk of damage to the pin or wire.  Each pin has a solder cup for easier and more secure termination and the housing is high temperature PTFE and not acrylic which is a superior dielectric as well as ensures years of flawless operation.  TAD-88 uses M3 set screws to attach to a cables outer PVC or PET braided jacket securely and can accomidate cables up to 8.6mm. Smaller diameter cables can also be used with the ZV-88 with the addtions of shrink tube or a PVC cuff before securing the M3 set screws. The TAD-88 comes in a standard Female Teflon DIN which fits the majority of tonearms on the market and we also offer a Male DIN version that fits a variety of vintage Grace tonearms and Japanese tonearms which use the reverse of the industry standard assembly.
