Description

In order to work properly cartridges need a rigid support.

For the past 100 years, however, the arms that have carried them have been anything but rigid. In 2010, Funk started an R&D program to solve this.

The result was Funk’s unique F•X Cross-Beam system (pat pend).

Rigid & low-Q, F•X has earned a giant killing reputation, which is well deserved.

Cross Beam – carbon fibre cross, aluminium tube

The first arm to use this technology was based on a Rega and won “Tonearm of The Year” in HiFi+ in 2020

We turned our attention to the ubiquitous Technics arms used on millions of turntables. While the Technics motors have a deserved reputation for robustness and speed stability, the arms are sonically the weak point.

The Funk FX1200 addresses this with a considerably stiffer, Low Q arm that reduces resonances and allows the cartridge to work more effectively.

FX 1200 – here the 1200G arm has been modified

The upgrade is provided as a service, send us your original arm and we return it to you with the upgrades.
