47 Lab new turntable and new tonearm

47 lab from Japan introduced their new Koma Turntable 4724 with 4725 Tsurube Tonearm. I did not see them in US. Here is a link to the Japan reseller:


It is magnetic suspension with two platters rotating opposite direction. Interesting idea but I wonder if it gives anything besides a futuristic look in demo rooms.

The tonearm look like completely from another planet. It is Mass Separation System type – I have no idea what it means. The micro brush to truck the record's warp – I did not see this solution for a while on high-end tables. The price for the whole thing is about $15K.

I do not know anything about this TT and arm and have no expectation of any kind. I still feel kind of pleased that 47 Lab is trying to do something DIFFERENT. I did not see anything different for a while in TT. It looks like new 47 Lab TT and arm is their new advance into TT world. Good for them…

It is not new
The arm and the table have been around for some while, I think. I saw it at a Russian show 4-5 years ago. Otherwise I can only agree with Romy that it's an unusual design.
