          It looks like a tonearm on Viagra.

                Must be a gag as there are NO wires from the tone arm going anywhere

                  That's because it's a bluetooth tonearm!

                    Was thinking the exact same thing when I did not see any interconnects.

                    I'm still looking for the mini-USB port for charging the Li-ion battery in the base of the tonearm stand.

                    I'm pretty sure that arm is a hoax. There is no way, that there is enough of a counterweight there, to balance an arm that long.

                      That's not gonna work. It's not the SIZE that matters. It's how well you align it

                          I don't think that's the first. Remember these from years ago.

                          Top is Rossner and Sohn from Germany, don't know the bottom.

                          A 16-inch WTA arm. Never have seen one so don't know if in production or one off. Harry at VPI has done a 14-inch arm too. Then there's the Kuzma 14-inch too. As they say, every million makes you an inch longer.
