After more than three years idea-crunching and countless man hours of CADing, prototyping, programming and real-life testing, we built our first commercially available turntable - Reed Muse 3C. Is it somehow unique? Well, yes! Whether you are fan of friction-driven turntables (the famous Garrard is made that way), or if you think that the right way to build turntables is to use a pair of motors and a belt, Reed Muse 3C should catch your eye.
Thanks to its unique and innovative design, you can convert friction-driven turntable to a belt-driven machine in 5 minutes.
Reed 3Q tonearm is dedicated for customers, who like to set up their audio equipment precisely using latest technology. Reed 3Q is equipped with laser, which allows to adjust VTA and azimuth very quickly and precisely (VTA precision +/- 0.1 mm, azimuth precision +/- 0.25 deg). It is very important after changing cartridges, because cartridge heights are different. As everyone may know, after every switch of cartridge VTF should be adjusted also. Using cartridges with high and medium compliance, VTA (SRA) should be adjusted every time after changing VTF. It is because VTF changes cause cantilever bending and changes of SRA. To get best sound quality, even after changing LP with different thickness (it can be from 0.8 mm to 3 mm), VTA should be adjusted accordingly.
Reed 3P is our latest tonearm model. Built after our Reed Mag prototype tonearm, it replaced our Reed 2P model. Among other features, like fine VTA adjustment on-the-fly, it also has a unique possibility of adjusting azimuth while playing a record. An exciting thing about the azimuth adjuster is that during the adjustment process the cartridge "swings" around the needle tip, hence keeping all other tonearm parameters intact (you can see how it works by watching a short video).

Reed 5T is our first appearance in the tangential tonearm domain.
Featuring unique design, innovative technological solutions and high quality, and dedicated to a true audio passionate, it is one of the most advanced tonearms we have ever made.
Reed 5T technically is a tangentially tracking pivoted tonearm.
It’s working principle is based on Thales’ theorem (if the center of a triangle's circumcircle lies on the triangle then the triangle is right, and the center of its circumcircle lies on its hypotenuse) and the rule, that given three non- collinear points, it is possible to draw only one circle that has finite radius and passes through all three.
