Linear tracking airbearng tonearm
The most universal linear tracking airbearing tonearm.
Odin fit most highend turntable designs- incl. the Bergmann 4-arm turntable; model Galder.

Design
In the design and construction of Odin, we stay to our idea of simplicity: As few parts and assembling as possible, to avoid resonances. A parameter in the ultimate tonearm design is stiffness and stability in the construction. Both are carefully incorporated in the Odin arm. An example is the airpipe, which is fixed in both ends, to give the floating part the best possible base. The arm tube is traditional for Bergmann tonearms- well considered construction in few parts, made as a double tube construction, with damping in between the tubes. This means that the arm tube control the vibrations from cartridge and record grooves when handling the musical crescendos.  The tonearm wire is- as usual in Bergmann tonearms- in one lenght from cartridge clips the the DIN connector. The DIN connector ensures user flexibility for connection of the preferred interconnect phono cable. Counterweight is decoupled from the arm- again to avoid any resonances.

Strength in the linear tracking air bearing tonearm
The Linear tracking tonearm tracks the record as it is pressed = no tracking error.
The benefit is a distortion free and relaxed reproduction, even at complex passages.
One more important advantage of the airbearing is the tonearm’s immunity to acoustic feedback, as it has no mechanical contact (the moving part) to the turntable. The only contact is through the stylus tip and the tonearm wire. Timbre, details and nuances, is a natural part of the transparent and vivid acoustic image. The 3D spaciousness, layering between instruments and zero tracking error is something traditional tonearm finds hard to achieve. The Odin arm provides you with all adjustment possibilities required: VTA, overhang, azimuth, air pipe leveling, and airflow adjustment. All adjustments are easily accessible and easy to handle.

Air supply
The air supply has been the object of our greatest attention. The goal is to design a silent air supply, which could be placed in the listening room, and deliver an even, clean and dry air flow.
The pump is an oil free, long life unit, which do not require much maintenance. The impulses from the pump are absorbed in an encapsulated reservoir. This results in an even airflow to the air bearing. The air supply is mounted with a filter, which prevents dust particles in entering the system. This filter is replaceable when necessary.
