J. Sikora KV12 tonearm er et unikt design og de første som kom med en armtube laget i Kevlar.

KV12 og KV9 MAX har en rekke armkomponenter laget av bronse, et topplager spesialdesignet for denne modellen og et enda lettere Kevlar-armrør.  Til slutt – zirkonium i lageret! Alt dette gjør denne armen til en ekstremt rask, dynamisk, presis konstruksjon med en unik evne til å trylle frem denne fantastiske musikalske lyden. Dette er en av de beste armene du kan kjøpe på markedet i dag.

MAREK DYBA – High Fidelity
«It rather seems that the KV9 Max is capable of using the information from the recording to the maximum and creating on its basis an exceptionally convincing, multi-layered musical image in front of a listener. An image that differed from album to album, let me add, which only confirmed the tonearm’s ability to accurately present all the information read by stylus from record’s groove.»

Marek Dyba – J. Sikora KV9 MAX 


The J.Sikora KV9 MAX is a 9’’ oil-dampened unipivot tonearm with an effective length of 228,6 mm and effective mass of 10,7g. The make and finish are impeccable. It features a flat, metal headshell with elongated slots that allow user to move a cartridge along while setting it up.

Same as in the J.Sikora’s deck, also here designers decided to use a combination of several materials to achieve ultimate performance. The tube is made of Kevlar, and as far as I know it is the first tonearm ever utilizing this material. It is supported by several metal elements made of aluminum, iron cast, bronze and stainless steel.

The internal custom mono-crystal silver wiring was custom-made by another renown Polish manufacturer, Julian Soja’s (Soyaton). It is a single piece wiring from cartridge pins on one end to RCA connectors on the other.

There are two counterweights. A bigger one placed close to pivot point allows user to adjust azimuth (using a single, easily accessible screw that ones screws in or out). And there is another, smaller one – the one that was replaced a week after the arm was installed on my deck. It is a metal cylinder with the threaded hole along its longer axis. Using such alignment allows for super-precise VTF adjustment.

In the box one finds another counterweight (smaller or larger depending on which was is installed) which may come handy for lighter or heavier cartridges.

There is also an anti-skating with a very small, very light weight on a thread (it’s all that is needed for this arm).

Last but not least, there is an element that took a very long time to developed and that is actually the most expensive part of the tonearm – the on-the-fly VTA adjustment. The whole mechanism is complex, extremely precise and hard to make, but the ultimate result is stunning. There is a large wheel placed horizontally on the tonearm’s column that one just turns one way or the other even during playback.
