Thread: zeta on its way

  1. #1

    Default zeta on its way

    i've bought a zeta from the states,it should be here next week,i love the look of these tonearms and should be a better match for my decca c4e than the alphason hr100.
    what are you opinions chaps?
    here's the a pic of it the seller sent me.
    my only concern is the decca weighs 13g and the rock paddle is 3g,i hope i can get it to balance out.

    Brilliant tone arm m8. I got mine way back in the day when they outperformed ANYTHING that Linn had to offer and it's still going strong on an LP12 today.

    It's seen a host of cartridges through its' life and been to j7 for a quick check and re-wire a few years ago, but there's no doubting it was some of the best "hi-fi pounds" that I ever spent.

    Hope your balancing issue works out.... and you ENJOY.

    Certainly looks like a solid bit of engineering. Enjoy.

    They are a popular choice for the LP12.

    Sort of... but I haven't seen any differences, the 10% GST (VAT) is supposed to be charged by the seller and sent to the government.... I have no idea how that is going to work.
    You should have a better idea than me as you are a vendor

    heres what OL say in there web site:




    When sending arms to us for modification, upgrade or repair

    Please note that if you fill in any customs declaration forms - tick the 'Gift Box'

    Or if you want a riskier option write 'ITEM FOR REPAIR' on it. The customs form (usually a small green label) will not provide guidance on this, but just write it on anyway in a conspicuous manner. Also for 'value of goods' write a value less than 20 to avoid the payment of incorrect customs duty. Sadly customs don't pay too much attention to what you write and just slap duty on value figure that comes in which has caused us very severe losses in the past so please be careful as the costs of recovering any duty far outweighs the cost of the duty - we are talking of nearly a days work of hanging on the phone - form filling and endless aggravation.

    If you do not do this we will be charged the import duty for whatever value you put on the goods - insurance value can be whatever you like but value of goods MUST be less than 20 as they are not being imported and are of zero value in actual fact as far as customs are concerned.
