The New 12 Inch Version of the Famous SA-250 is Jelco's entry level S-shaped arm,
Features include a removable headshell and calibrated tracking force and anti-skate adjustment.
This noble Japanese tonearms may not not the sexy design of such an SME what is offered does not or hardly more expensive designs. This manufacturer is known worldwide but what unsurpassed, perhaps because of the low profile attitude and extremely sober approach.
Sometimes the least conspicuous products are among the most important and Jelco is such a legend
without public status. That may change over time but would probably keep it there in Japan they prefer as it
is, honest stuff for a fair price.
The SA-250 is the little sister of the SA-750 and constitutes the core of the Jelco trio because it shares
characteristics with the SA-750 The ingredients consist of an S- arm
tube with the same HS-Headshellas that of the SA-750 and the standard bearing system
plus chassis, which is shared with the ST.
No oil-damping and in some respects somewhat simplerconstruction and finish determine the lower price.
Type: static balance s-shaped pipe type
Holding mechanism: one point cross suspension type
