Beskrivelse

Say hello to…

Merker du at pulsen stiger, svetten pipler i håndflater og panne, og at du ikke helt får med deg musikken når du nærmer deg slutten av en vinyl-side?

Frykt ikke mer! Little Fwend er her til unnsetning!


Little Fwend kommer i to varianter- en lav og en høy.


1.  Lifting Mechanism: Safe. Smooth. Silent. Those were the most important aspects of the design. We experimented a lot finding the right relationship between spring compression force, travel, dampening and friction. Little Fwend lifts the tonearm smooth and controlled with minimum use of force (and a little help from Newtons fwends). Little Fwend can lift tonearms with cartridges set up to 8 grams VTF.

Release Antenna: High carbon steel Roslau piano wire. Very low lateral force is required to release the mechanism. The cantilever will love to meet such low resistance.

2. Rubber Beam. Neoprene rubber. The high friction rubber padding lets the tonearm rest safely and stable even with the level a few degrees off both horizontally and vertically. If you´ve read this far, you´re probably the level type of audiophile.

Height Ranges. Little Fwend comes in two different sizes, Low and High. The Low model can be used under tonearms with clearance between the underside of the arm wand and the mounting surface as low as 32mm, up to 49mm. the High model from 49mm, up to 82mm. Height is adjusted by a set screw in the base. The appropriate hex key is enclosed. Please measure the distance from mounting/plinth surface up to the underside of tonearm wand. Take the measurement when the tonearm has correct VTA and the needle is in the groove. Subtract approx. 1mm from this distance, to make sure there will be safe clearance between the rubber beam and the moving tonearm.

3. Mounting Platform. 0.3mm mild steel disc with adhesive backing. Little Fwend is fastened to the platform through magnetic force. The axially magnetized N52-magnet in the base is strong enough to keep Little Fwend in place, but weak enough to easily reorient the trigger antenna for the various run-out groove areas. Little Fwend is readjusted in seconds. The diametrical magnetic field is very low and will not affect magnetic metals in the radius of the base.

Kompabilitetsliste for Little Fwend

List of compatible turntables for Little Fwend. Updated 10.02.2020.
We are constantly adding turntables to this list, but as there are over 3000 models out there, we don´t have them all specified. If you find your turntable on this list, but not the specific height model you need – instructions on how to determine the right one can be found here.

Little Fwend is an automatic end-of-the-record tonearm lifter. It is a precision engineered accessory for manual turntables that will prolong the life of your stylus and takes about 10 minutes to install. Little Fwend will work for all tonearms with gimbal, unipivot, dual-pivot and string suspension bearing (incl. Well Tempered Labs), but not linear tracking tonearms.

The LOW and HIGH are available through all our international distributors.
The XHIGH is a custom model available directly from us.

L  = LOW: 32-49mm height range.

 H = HIGH: 48-81mm height range.

 XH = XHIGH:  77-137mm height range. Email us at info@littlefwend.com.

Disclaimer
Even if you find your turntable model on the list below, we can not guarantee 100% that Little Fwend will have the sufficient space needed to function properly. As there are many customized configurations of tonearms, armboards and plinths, make sure you have the required mounting space for your specific set-up by reading through the “Placement of Mounting Disc”, found at the bottom of this page.

The turntable brands below also have one or more models which can use Little Fwend, you just have to measure and decide if the space requirements are met.

Acoustic Solid, Ariston, Audio Note, Basis, ERA, Goldring, JBE, Michell, Micro Seiki, Mission, NAD, Origin Live, Pioneer, Rek-O-Kut, Russco, Sony, Systemdek, Teres, etc. etc. etc. and so on…

Any additions to the list or technical questions? Please email us at info@littlefwend.com and we will try to help.

Placement of Mounting Disc
There should be approx. 30mm diameter of mounting space from the platters edge to the base of the tonearm or any object potentially restricting Little Fwends free movement. Measure while the tonearm points towards the run-out groove area. 

For safety, turn off the turntable motor.
The stylus should be hovering above the outer edge of a standard 12-inch records paper label before determining the positioning of the mounting disc. The recommended placement of the disc is straight under the tube of the tonearm, about halfway between the platter and the base of the tonearm. Make sure you place the mounting disc so the protruding release antenna of Little Fwend is at least a couple of millimeters from the platter.

If you are really obsessive about not adhering anything to the plinth, the non-adhesive restickable dot enclosed in the package can be placed under the metal mounting disc.
