The tone arm by Dr Durand always delivers tremendous energy in the bottom end, which is the foundation of music. The mid range is rich and sexy. The high frequency is smooth and yet extended. Dr. Durand has a classical composer background. His arm is musically correct all the time. The application of audiophile jargon to describe his masterpieces may miss the true intention of his design philosophy. His works are the result of meticulous engineering principles executed in perfection to the service of music.
