    Is there ar moderately priced Tonearm Lift between a Q-Up and Little Fwend?

    Looking for an Auto Tonearm lift better than the Q-up but not as expensive as the Little Fwend.

    I got a Q-Up last year and it did not even work out of the box. I was angry and never sought a replacement and just sent it back. I see all kinds of positive reviews but I am a little skeptical after having a non working one in my hands.

    I don't play enough vinyl to justify the cost of the Fwend so looking for a middle of the price ranges alternative if there are any.

    TIA

    I have no experience with it, but here's one on Amazon for $90 that appears to be a knockoff of the Audio Technica Safety Raiser. Looks like delivery to US takes about a month!

    Thanks Bill, I would probably go with the AT for the peace of mind.
