Fidelity Research Tonearm

The FR-14



While incorporating many of the innovations of the FR-66S and FR-66, this arm features an unusual design approach in which the arm pipe is offset from the pivot point to allow a shorter pipe to be used. This is an advantage since effective mass is lower, yet the pipe itself is stronger and does not need as large a curve as in conventional designs.

The headshell connector is a proven, highly reliable design. The anti-skating device can he adjusted to begin operation at the point considered optimum once the tonearm has been mounted. This is a statically balanced tonearm and the counterweight is easily and accurately adjustable by means of a precision rack and pinion device built into the weight.

Was also available as the FR-14 Silver model, which features pure silver for all internal wiring.
