Based on the uni-pivot design Graham Engineering has perfected over the past 20 + years, the Graham Phantom Elite uses the point down damped uni-pivot bearing manufactured to spec in Switzerland, Magneglide stabilizer/azimuth adjuster, calibrated VTA adjustability with built-in spirit level, detachable arm wand in 9", 10" and 12" lengths with Grahams cartridge alignment gauge.

The Graham Phantom Elite has a new, larger bearing housing for better resonance control with updated internal wire, larger diameter arm wand with updated internal wire, newly designed decoupled counterweight, new CA-9 height-adjustable cartridge alignment gauge available for 9", 10" or 12" arms, new IC-90 tonearm cable.

"Although the basic design principles, thinking, and features of Bob Graham's classic Phantom unipivot tonearm remain unchanged, the Elite represents a substantial upgrade from previous iterations, with improvements in materials and implementation, constrained-layer damping in the pivot assembly, a new high-density, non-magnetic tungsten insert for zero-tolerance bearing-contact and high spurious-energy absorption. No other 'arm known to PS can be more accurately and repeatably adjusted to extract optimal performance from any suitable pickup." - PS, The Absolute Sound, Issue 254
