Thank you for your continuing surveillance of my posts. I don't know what I would do without your oversight. Not only is the new tonearm not novel to Yamaha, but it is also not novel in that the Viv Float and the 47 Labs RS-A1 tonearms, which have been on the market for a long time, are also underhung, to name only two. I think also there is or was a Nottingham Analog tonearm that is underhung. In this case, what I meant by "novel" is that it is novel to have a commercially marketed turntable/tonearm combination that includes an underhung tonearm already mounted on the turntable. So, I guess you could say I misspoke on this major topic. Since the earth might have fallen into the sun, if you had not corrected me, I can only thank you.
