High quality Japanese S-shaped tonearm Sony PUA-1600LDeveloped for the PS-8750 flagship, and later on available separately. Comes with Yamaha headshell and original phono cable, copies of manual and template.
Sported two-point sapphire supports on chromed steel needle bearings. The light aluminium wand is damped internally with special materials.The dedicated headshell (SH-165) is a mix of aluminium and carbon fibers ; all contacts are gold-plated. The original carbon wand version of the PS-8750 was not made available separately.
Unlike the previous PUA-286 and PUA-237, the 1600S and 1600L tonearms sold very little, despite a very affordable price of 32,000¥ and 29,800¥, respectively - compare that to the 60,000¥ of a PUA-9 ! This is quite probably due to Sony's abscence of advertising for them - and the usual snobism regarding Sony audio components.
