Standard type tonearm connectors

1877Phono Tonearm connectors:

Zavfino 1877Phono is a Canadian company which produces a variety of Hi-Fi audio equipment, parts and accessories. Although we have no links with the company we have been using their tonearm connectors on our cables for over 10 years and they still remain our favourite tonearm connector option for any cable regardless its price range. They are not low cost options, but they are reasonably priced given their very high quality. They are produced at very tight tolerances and make use of materials that will ensure minimal impact on signal transfer. They are available in a few versions in order to accommodate all tonearms and set-ups We would gladly recommend these connectors without hesitation.

1877Phono Classic & Gold Tonearm connectors

A classic tonearm connector design in its highest build quality version. Precision CNC machined housing with a durable matt silver finish.  Teflon insulation and gold plated OFC copper contacts, machined and  assembled at very tight tolerances. Highly recommended. There are many connectors in the market  that have a very similar appearance (and we have tried most - if not all of them). With a bit close attention, the quaility of the 1877Phono  plugs clearly stands out. This is not an economy option and should not  be confused with other very similar aftermarket tonearm connectors.

Unlike other similar connectors that come with a diameter of 12mm, the 1877Phono is produce with an 11.8mm diameter, This small difference is essential for fitting on certain tonearms that have a pillar diameter smaller than 12mm.

1877Phono TAD-88

A long, straight version of the 1877phono tonearm connectors, primarily intended for use with tonearms that have their socket deep fitted inside their pillar (i.e. Mayware Formula, Audiocrraft etc). Also very practical for turntables and armboards that require a long connector to reach the tonearm.

1877Phono angled tonearm connector

This is our favourite angled tonearm connector and one of the best designs in the market. Its small profile makes it suitable for most tonearms/turntables. As with the other tonearm connectors by 1877phono the connector features gold plated OFC copper contacts and precision machined Teflon isolation. The 2 part metal housing of the connector offers a very efficient clamping function. Finished in silver matt.

1877Phono Carbon Tonearm connector

The premium straight tonearm connector version by 1877phono, featuring a silver finished metal housing with carbon fiber layering. We would describe it as a luxury product in the sense that it will not offer any additional performance benefit. The connector interface is the same as the classic models. The body of the connector is longer so it should only be used where there is sufficient clearance.
