The Tone Arm by Dr Durand reliably delivers tremendous energy at the bottom end, which is the foundation of music. The mid range is rich and seductive. The high frequencies are smooth and yet extended. The use of audiophile jargon to describe his masterpieces may miss the true intention of his design philosophy. Dr. Durand himself has a classical composer background. His works are the result of meticulous engineering principles executed in perfection to the service of music. And that's what the Durand Tone Arm is: musical.
