VPI JMW 12.6i Plus Tonearm - Antiskate

Hi How is your experience with this tonearm? I understand that antiskate is adjusted by twisting a lead wire which I was told make antiskate adjuistment difficult and inaccurate. Pls comment. Happy Listening TQ
i have the 10.5i on my aires three, the instructions for the wire twist adjustment for antiskate get you close but whos to tell, VPI is coming out with a devise that will be more machinable like most other arms use, i think the jmw 9 arm antiskate are available, and the rest yet to come, i am on there mailing list for my arm, the 10.5i on the aires table is working very well for me in my system, plenty of slam, and no problem tracking with my dynavector 20xl,
I've owned the JMW-10 for a number of years atop a TNT. Setting the antiskate with twisting of the wire has worked fine and should not be a deciding factor in your purchasing decision. Harry Wesfield, who has heard and setup a turntable or two in his day, actually felt that the arm without the mechanical anti-skate sounded better. He only developed the tradional anti-skate because perceptions, like your's above, have cost him sales. Why not email him directly for his current opinion. I suspect he still thinks the wire method sounds best.
I have a 12.5 arm on a TNT-5. I also have the WallySkater that allows me to measure the amount of anti-skate force being applied by the twisted wires. By twisting the wires I can get anti-skate set within the desired parameters both at the outer grooves and at the inner grooves. And with no anti-skate devices except the wires, there are no parts to vibrate/resonate which is the problem Harry Weisfeld has stated he was trying to eliminate.
hi tq for all the feedbk.
