33% Lighter
10x Damping capacitycompared to aluminum

Our OA3 armtube is molded from magnesium – an incredibly strong yet lightweight material known for its vibration damping properties. Each armtube is made in the USA to exacting standards.

One-piece tapered design minimizes points of resonance in the tonearm. This ensures no musical information from the record is lost, so you hear every detail with remarkable clarity.

Easily adjustable for flawless tracking

Fine tune your tonearm to optimize cartridge performance. OA3 Pro’s dial counterweight allows you to set tracking force without a stylus gauge. And its adjustable anti-skate uses a hinged weight to apply consistent force across the entire record surface.

Precision engineered from the inside out

OA3 Pro’s upgraded gimbal bearing allows the tonearm to move with exceptional freedom. Both the bearing shaft and housing are machined from stainless steel and threaded for highly precise axial preload. This means less resonance in the tonearm and near-frictionless movement across the record. 

Pinpoint speed accuracy

Theory features a DC-powered sine wave generator system that monitors and adjusts speed thousands of times per second. Our advanced motor controller utilizes a crystal oscillator to drive the ultra-quiet motor with pinpoint accuracy. The result? Minimal wow & flutter and no motor noise during playback.

Orbit’s new groove

Our frosted acrylic platter is grooved to keep the belt in place. All platter surfaces are precision machined for ultimate flatness and virtually zero runout. The platter rotates on a machined aluminum spindle and inverted main bearing with self-lubricating polymer bushings.

Less vibration. More clarity.

Theory’s adjustable Iso-Level Feet are constructed out of aluminum and layered with Sorbothane – the gold standard for vibration isolation. Preventing vibrations from reaching the stylus lets you hear the most subtle details of your music with outstanding clarity.
