The latest Roksan Nima combines solid aluminium alloy tubing which is now fully grounded, a stainless steel alloy and a polished acrylic uni-pivot cup assembly. This remarkable arm is made of no less than ten individual precision-machined components.

The unique design of the O-ring transit locking mechanism of the uni-pivot bearing assembly not only provides a safe transportation method, but also avoids damage if the arm is accidentally lifted off its bearing. In order to transport the arm, all you need do is gently lift the bearing cup a little and the assembly is held by the O-ring.
Anti-skate is adjusted easily by the position of a thread and weight. Azimuth correction (necessary with uni-pivot arms) is provided by an O-ring decoupled, mirror chromed counterweight, which has its mounting hole offset. This not only allows for azimuth correction, but cleverly lowers its centre of gravity, a very simple and cost effective solution, and this pretty much sums up what the Nima design represents overall.
A tonearm, being capable of wonderful music, at a fraction of the cost of many of its competitors.
||"The build quality is exquisite. The standard arm is Roksan's Nima—a flashy unipivot design that's a fine unit."
||"The Roksan's strength resides in its superb resolution and, for some, a slight yet discernible sweetness. I personally think the Nima tonearm is outstanding and it would make a wonderful choice on its own."
Combining solid aluminium alloy tubing, a stainless steel alloy and polished acrylic; this remarkable arm is made of no less than ten individual precision-machined components which are then meticulously put together by skilled hands.
The Roksan Nima tonearm does not have standard internal wiring; so in order to transmit the signal from the cartridge in as higher quality as possible, the same flat-printed, circuit board cable developed for our top-of-the-range Artemiz arm is employed.
The unique design of the transit locking mechanism of the bearing assembly not only provides a safe transportation method, but also avoids damage if the arm is accidentally lifted off its bearing.
The counterweight is decoupled and designed to mount off-centre thus allowing easy Azimuth correction.
Vertical Tracking Angle (VTA) adjustment provides optimum alignment for almost any cartridge.
The combination of polished acrylic headshell, silver anodised aluminium tubing and mirror chromed counterweight enhances NIMA's looks and conveys the true lightness and neutrality of this very special arm.
The Nima has a brilliantly natural, cohesive sound reproduction and in conjunction with the Radius 5 and a good cartridge such as the Roksan Corus produces a vast panoramic sound with plenty of clarity and punch.
