I had a feeling I might like the Jelco SA-750D, but ended up quite taken aback at its sophisticated performance and sheer musicality. It is an easy arm to get the best from, simple to set up and beautifully built. However, what most surprised me with this review was the discovery that the SA-750D is only a little dearer than the SA-250 and SA-250ST. Excellent performers though these two designs are, I cannot help but feel that the extra hundred pounds or so buys you a sonic improvement that sounds much more. On this basis, not only is the Jelco SA-750D a very capable tonearm but also something of a bargain - HIFI World

Jelco have been in business since 1920 and have manufactured tone-arms for the world's biggest-name turntable producers. Manufacturers that have marketed Jelco arms under their own names include Koetsu, Sumiko, Audioquest, Linn, Oracle, Ariston, Roksan, Revolver, Mission and Graham. In fact, Jelco manufactured the famous Sumiko MMT and the Linn Ittock II. 
They have an unenviable reputation for quality control,. The SA-750D uses the Linn mounting arrangement and is suitable for a wide range of cartridges, especially the Denon 103. This was described in Hi Fi World December 2008 as "Jelco's new premium arm. 
 
 
This S-shaped device is essentially the classic and sought after Sumiko MMT reborn, and offers high quality bearings and construction together with a detachable headshell and an optional oil damping facility, all wrapped up in a seriously lovely black or chrome finish"
In most parts of the world detachable headshell arms are considered to be very good, this one certainly is.  You could put a £2,000 cartridge on it without any problems.  Or for the die hard 78rpm enthusiast, you could have a different cartridge and different sized stylus on a selection of headshells
 
 

verdict five globes

Jelco may be best known for budget OEM arms, but the silky smooth SA-750D shows they can mix it in the higher echelons with ease.

Vertere Pulse D-Fi Analogue Tonearm Cable

 

Vertere Cables D-Fi Hi Fi+  by Alan Sircom - “This is perhaps the single most important cable Hi-Fi Plus has ever reviewed. That’s a pretty bold statement, but it’s true, because the D-Fi is not so only a cable – it’s a generational gateway.”  A couple of years ago, a cable company made a tonearm. That is interesting enough in its own right, but the tonearm it made cost $36,000, making it the most expensive production tonearm in history. Anyone who scratched the surface discovered the full story was not quite as insane as it first looked. Get true high-end performance at entry level. Pulse D-Fi Analogue Tonearm Cable partners any tonearm with a 5-pin connector to provide optimum results from the phono cartridge.
