“The Air Force III turntable is designed as a system with excellent performance and upgradability. It has been developed by extracting the essence of our reference model Air Force One, and reworking these aspects into a more compact and affordable design. It is a true audiophile product in it’s own right.”
The Graham 2.2 tonearm system has been designed to be the finest available in its field, both in performance and in user convenience.
This convenience begins with the installation itself; the detail of which is to give you all the information you need to do the job properly.
If your turntable has the proper armboard or cutout already made, you should have everything mounted and ready to play in approximately half an hour.
The user-friendliness of the Graham 2.2 tonearm will allow the end user to install the tonearm and cartridge accurately without having to depend on a dealer to perform this function.
