Golden calf?

I have no idea on their peformance, it may be a fine arm, but what has been striking me on their website is that
they seem to be most proud of the swiss-made 24k golden layer on their arms.
The only production and QC they show is measuring the gold thickness with an X-ray as a vital part of the production cycle...



Cheers,

Even the good ones are using marketing today...

otherwise they could not survive in this ocean of illusion. The good news is that not all tonearms are gold plated Wink and may be not only that:

"Anisotropic because the effective mass for the horizontal mode of motion is many times higher than the effective mass for the vertical mode of motion. – No matter the effective mass of the armtube used.This provides for tremendous improvements in bass response and a lot more dynamics." from the TONEARMS part at http://www.moerch.dk/ 

I am curious, sometimes curiosity kills the cat, but may be I will try...
