Reed Muse 3C turntable and 3P arm

Reed 3P,
Reed Muse 3C

If the deck is great, then the tonearm is excellent. It’s lively, entertaining, and ever so slightly warm and rich sounding; an almost perfect counterpart to the turntable in fact. OK, so if you are looking for the ultimate in analytical neutrality, keep looking, but as a beguiling performer that draws out the passion and fire in a recording, the 3P comes highly recommended.

Reed’s Lithuanian duo are not just yet another blah turntable and arm combination. These two are extremely clever, great sounding devices on their own, that work brilliantly together. Recommended!
