GrooveMaster: Master in reproduction of sound

The Audio Creative GrooveMaster II is a high quality, CNC machined tonearm and is constructed completely by hand. The origin of this tonearm lies in the 1950-1960’s. In this period, high quality, transcription tonearms and turntables were used in broadcast studio’s. The Audio Creative GrooveMaster is developed according to the same standards, but with the precision of 2014. The Groovemaster can be used in combination with many turntables. Especially the beautiful classic turntables as the Garrard 301 and 401 and Thorens TD124, 135, 124. But when you are rebuilding a nice Lenco L75, L75 or L78 ,the GrooveMaster will be an excellent partner.
