Can anyone comment on how it sounds? I have a Keel for Linn tonearm but I have an Itokk II and don't want to drill a hole for the arm support. SO I 've been looking for an Ekos 2 (SE is just too much $). The Javelin though sure looks like a good value. Any idea how it and an Ekos 2 would compare?

Hi the Javelin is very well thought out and constructed with great attention to detail.
There are a few members on here the that know the manufacturer personally and were treated to pre production listening tests and very favourably it was received.
It's a different type of arm from the LINN ones in that it is a unipivot whereas the LINN arms are fixed gimbal bearings.
But really a listen is the best idea as owners of a particular type might prefer that anyway but lots of scope for discussion if they join in.
Hope this helps. 8) :smt023

Heard from Roger last week that, hopefully, the Linn Keel version will be available in March. I can't wait.

I see the Javelin for Linn is shown on the Cymbiosis site, I'm guessing this is the Keel compatible version. Has anyone tried it?
