This is the 10th Clearaudio tonearm in its current catalogue, and, as such, takes its place between the Magnify and Clarify models.
Moreover, that puts it just three steps below the flagship Universal.
Clearaudio’s design team apparently looked to high-end watchmaking for pointers.
The Tracer features a high-precision, low-friction jewelled bearing which is deftly crafted using a combination of tungsten and sapphire.
Finally, the tonearm tube is constructed from carbon. As you will already be aware, this is both extremely rigid and very lightweight, giving a just-right combination of stability and agility.
The Anti-skating force is adjustable by way of a simple dial, while the aluminium headshell allows the azimuth to be easily fine-tuned.
Price and availability
The Clearaudio Tracer tone arm has an RRP of £1,810. It is available with a black or silver carbon arm-tube, with matching aluminium parts.
