This board is to show Lenco turntables where The Wand Tonearm® is mounted directly on the original top plate without drilling a new hole. While a special mounting kit is needed, it is possible and the original lifter may be used if so desired. So an eclectic collection of users and cartridges from around the world, with England, Malaysia, Denmark, France and New Zealand shown here. There will be a separate board for The Wand Tonearm on Lencos using PTP (Peters Top plate) and custom plinths.

The Wand Unipivot Tonearm®
"The sound coming out of my Lenco is nothing short of stunning. Everything that I liked about it is stepped up a fair amount. And the things I had reservations about are completely reversed. Pianos growl, orchestras are like fireworks. Everything in between just sings. I think I got a bit of help from the rest of the updates to the table. But I figure about 80% is your tonearm. I could not be happier about this whole thing." John H  USA Fireworks, Rest, The Originals, Table, Pianos, Desk, Tabletop, Desks

Many Wand tonearms are enjoying living in Malaysia and this is a superb photo of Yeap’s one with Decca London fitted. It seems a particularly good combo "Also replaced the rubber mat with the 5mm achromat by funk  Now they sound very impressive.  Your tonearm can definitely bring out the quality of the decca. The lenco drive like you said is amazing.  Now my immedia, air tangent and zyx combo is playing catching up!
