The 2 arm­bases of the
Montana NEO

The Montana NEO is equipped with two adjustable tonearm bases that can accommodate all 9- to 12-inch tonearms thanks to inter­change­able armboards.

As standard, one armboard is individually adapted to your tonearm. The second is designed with a closed top that can be easily changed for mounting a second tonearm.

Silencer modules of the Montana NEO

Silencer
