1H Tonearm

The latest model in the Reed entry-level range. Featuring a carbon fibre armwand.

2 Years




Reed 1H is the latest addition to the entry level tonearm series. And, for the first time, they introduce carbon fibre as the primary armwand material.

After a thorough research Reed found a way to make the carbon fibre armwand’s acoustic properties close to ones that normally are typical for the wood.

By using soft wood to damp the carbon fibre tube, their new armwand’s acoustic properties become considerably better than using carbon fibre alone, and can be compared to wooden armwands.

The Reed 1H has a cardanic bearing system: vertical axis has thrust rotation bearings and horizontal axis is based on thrust pivot bearings (same concept as in Reed 3P). Such bearing construction eliminates wobbling of a bearing, which has a great impact on the quality of the sound.

Among other features, the 1H tonearm has azimuth adjustment, a replaceable headshell and VTA adjustment. Tonearm height adjustment range is from 28mm to 48 mm. It is also easily tuned and can be mounted on most turntables out of the box or using an adapter.

Tonearm signal output is either 5 pin-DIN connector or Finewire 37 cables.

Antiskating: magnetic, similar to the one used in Reed 3P.

This tonearm is available in 3 difference length. 9”, 10.5” and 12”. The price quoted is for the 9” version. Contact us for prices for the other sizes.
