Magne means “strength”. In Nordic mythology Magne is the super baby, son of Thor, the God of Thunder, and when he is three days old he is so strong that he can lift a dead giant away from his father, who is pinned underneath. Magne is one of the few gods, who survive Ragnerok, the nordic armageddon, and rebuilds the new world. The platter – centred by a spindel – floats on an air film.
The air pump must deliver an even, clean and dry air flow. The impulses from the pump are absorbed in an encapsulated reservoir. This results in an even airflow to the air bearing and tonearm. The air supply is mounted with a filter, which prevents dust particles in entering the system. This filter is replaceable when necessary. The pump is an oil free, long life unit, which do not require much maintenance.
Magne Linear tracking airbearing tonearm
In the design of the tonearm, we stay to our idea of simplicity: As few parts and assemblies as possible, to avoid resonances. The armtube is traditional for Bergmann tonearms- well considered construction in few parts, made as a double tube construction, with damping in between the tubes. All parts are assembled by 2 component epoxy – simple and vibration free design to secure as pure and coherent reproduction.The tonearm wire is- as usual in Bergmann tonearms- in one lenght from cartridge clips to the connector. These minimalistic design features makes an optimum signal transmission, from the stylus tip to the phono stage, and leads to an unmatched transparent and spaciousness sound stage with the right timbre and musical informations. Counterweight is decoupled from the arm- again to avoid any resonances. In addition, the set-up of the tangential tonearm is entirely uncomplicated, and probably the easiest tonearm to set up.
Magne ST is a linear tracking airbearing tonearm with air supply. Offered in black/silver.
System includes power supply, and a RCA/XLR/DIN connector.
