You’ve spent years building your record collection. You’ve dedicated weekends to searching for hidden gems in record stores and carefully curating your discoveries. You worked hard, because you love music. We worked hard creating Alva TT, because we love music too.
The Alva TT uses a classic British-made one-piece tonearm. There are no joints, giving it the best possible grounding for the cartridge and offering extremely low friction.
It’s designed to retrieve the maximum amount of sonic detail from the cartridge and therefore your records.
