All three new Levar tonearms are "Made in Germany" and will soon be available in the sizes of 9, 10.5 and 12 inches. Customers can also choose between standard and SME-compatible versions. The three models are called "Levar Ultimate Carbon-Oil" (top model with oil damping and single-point bearing), "Levar Superior" (design like Ultimate Carbon-Oil, but without oil damping) and "Levar Primor" (entry-level model, 2-point bearing).
Levar's new "Resonance Magnetic Absorber B&W Series 800 Line" will also be available soon. This special model of the Levar Resonance series of damping feet is specially designed for use with the B&W 800D1, D2 and D3 models. The dampers are not height adjustable, as the height is set via the adjustable feet of the speaker. The original adjustable feet are placed in the specially shaped recess of the absorbers and are then firmly fixed in the upper recess and perfectly centered, i.e. free of tilting.
