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.

Here’s how one dealer has described it:

” … I have had a most enjoyable weekend delving into the latest box from the 10,000 LP haul that I brought back from the storage unit recently thanks to the incredible sound, or lack thereof, of the new (FX3) arm. I have to say I am enjoying the best phono sound I have ever owned, reminiscent of the Eminent Technologies SLT without all the silliness of air pumps and all. Another breakthrough!” Critical Dealer
