The AB-LS02 base is a high performance way to mount Korf tonearms on SME type arm boards
AB-LS02 SME-Type Base Specifications
For mounting of all Korf tonearms on SME-type turntable arm boards/cutouts. Will fit other tonearms with a 20mm shaft (such as Ortofon AS-212), provided the shaft diameter is within specified tolerance.
AB-LS02 uses clamping action instead of a more common set screw/grub screw. This gives dramatically better connection between the tonearm and the turntable. Clamping fixes the whole tonearm column in a tight tall ring. There is no rocking and no angular errors. On the other hand, the typically employed set screw creates just one tiny firm contact spot 2-3 mm in diameter, leaving the other contact surfaces to chance.
