The name Morch stands for tonearms with outstanding quality among classicists. Morch tonearms are mechanically very stable. They are the result of best mechanics and craftsmanship in perfection, made to satisfy highest technical and audiophile whishes. Moerch toenarms come in 4 masses, 9 inch or 12 inches, and in precision (bigger headshlee) or standard headshells. All tonearm-parameters are adjustable. This ensures that you can optimize the performance of your cartridge. There is nothing more flexible!

Due to exchangeable armwands, which differ in 4 weight versions, it is possible to reach a perfect mass proportion between tonearm and cartridge. In most of the cases it is possible to adjust the resonance of depth in the perfect spectrum between 8 and 13 Hz.

The top model DP-6 has a unique combination from high precision bearing (for the horizontal movement) and a 2-point sapphire-spikebearing (for the vertical movement). The bearing point is at the same height like the surface of the record, which means there are no tone pitch variations by vertical movements of the arm (billowy records). A clock spring produces the antiskating force and can be adjusted during playing. The essential corrections to the inner areas happen automatically. Three adjustment weights , which are different heavy, and one pressing weight make it possible to achieve a perfect mass at the fulcrum of the tonearm.
The cables on the inside are from Teflon-coated silver. The cable to the phono amplifier is made from extremely pure, silvered copper. Available in chrome and 24 carat gold.



A  ingenious one-point design with sapphire bearing using the spike principle, which can be damped with silicone fluid at any time. Due to the low centre of gravity, it is very stable against commuting compared to other one-point constructions. Like the DP-6 this tonearm has the same antiskating mechanism and is equipped with 3 adjustment weights and a pressing weight. The cables on the inside are from Teflon-coated silver. The cable to the phono amplifier is made from extremely pure, silvered copper. Available in chrome and 24 carat gold.

While playing a record, the tonearm must be able to move both horizontally and vertically – horizontally as the cartridge moves towards the center of the record, and vertically to allow for imperfections (warps and bumps) in the record.

At very low frequencies the modulation in the record is only horizontal. If the tonearm can move too freely horizontally the low frequency motion of the stylus will be transferred to the cartridge itself, while the cantilever of the cartridge almost does not move, and thus only a weak signal is induced.

To have excellent audio reproduction at these low frequencies, the horizontal movement of the tonearm must be restricted – but to ensure perfect tracking this must be achieved without a similar restriction of the vertical movement. This “anisotropic” principle – different characteristics for different directions of movement – is the essence of the MØRCH DP-8.

The DP-8 has a flywheel shaped central body and two weights on the sides to stabilize the movement of the tonearm horizontally. Thus, as the cartridge moves towards the center of the record, it can only follow the average location of the groove. It cannot follow the modulation, which is all transferred to the cantilever. This means that all the recorded bass, even the very low end of the range, is reproduced with full amplitude and dynamics.


Morch Chrom

DP-8 with 9” PRECISION armtube. It is the two weights on each side of the heavy central body of the tonearm that provides for the majority of the effective mass (Inertial moment) for the horizontal mode of motion. The center of gravity of these weights are pointing backwards – either upwards or downwards, so that they contribute to the counterweighs at the same time as they provide for moving the center of gravity of the moveable part of the tonearm up or down.


Morch 12"

Here the DP-8 is shown with a 12” armtube.

Model DP-8 has a unique combination of bearings: For the horizontal mode of motion a silicone damped high precision ball-bearing assembly increases the stability provided by the large housing and sideweights. For the vertical mode of motion two precision sapphire bearings are incorporated.
The vertical motion also may be damped if desired, by injecting silicone fluid into a well. Vertical damping is rarely needed for this model. It is independent of the damping of the horizontal mode of motion, and further it can be adjusted to all intermediate levels of damping.

Model DP-8 has an integrated device for adjusting the VTA while playing. Markings for "getting back" to a special setting is provided.

The feature with different weights of armtubes to optimize the tonearm for any cartridge is maintained. Thus warps will not influence the tracking force, and there will be no vertical deflection of the cantilever.

In model DP-8 the azimuth adjustment for perfect channel separation is accomplished at the pivot of one of the sapphire bearings.
