Latest Version of the Incredible F5 Tonearm

Funk has long maintained that the humble “tonearm” is a serious weak link in achieving purity of analogue replay.

Indeed this is immediately supported when one looks at Funk’s first foray into pickup arms, the FXR. Its performance has been universally received as a revelation in what can be achieved to push the envelope forward in arm technology and has been selected for use by four leading reviewers as their personal choice of arm. The unique F•X construction at the heart of the FXR requires significant detail in its manufacture to ensure its superb performance.

Based on the same desire for listening purity we have engineered and developed the F5 arm. Achieving high levels of listening pleasure which Funk are renowned for, we are proud to unveil its latest creation ... the F5 ... which is aimed at those who wish to own a superb product at a lower cost. We are proud of the results, we are sure you will be too.

The F5 not only complements but actually enhances Little Super Deck’s performance when compared to the industry’s normal offerings, the RB 250 /300 / 301 / 600 / 700 and so on. As a result, we took the bold step of designing the F5 to be an upgrade option for owners of Rega Planar 2, Planar 3, P3, P5, P6 etc. who also want to achieve significant improvement without having to purchase a whole new deck. The upgrade option can be enhanced further by using one of Funk's Achromats or even better our Achroplat.

F5 will deliver a level of musical pleasure that will instantly enhance you musical enjoyment.
