As the world’s leading authority and pioneer of the use of carbon fibre technology in audio structures Wilson Benesch is delighted to announce, the latest results of its on going research and development.
There are three key factors in the design of the tube of any tonearm:~
1. The form of the tube: Based on natures’ rules Hyperbolic form
2. The stiffness of the tube: Strength facts, compare Magnesium 275 MPa to Nano carbon 62,300 MPa
3. The damping capabilities of the tube: Anisotropic materials like carbon fibre direct energy and exhibit high levels of damping perpendicular to the fibre. Carbon fibre is vastly superior to metal structures that propagate energy in all directions very efficiently.
The Nanotube is second to none by several orders of magnitude.
It is the most advanced manifestation of the tonerm tube ever created.
