Is My Orbit Gen 1 or Gen 2?
Looking at the tonearm is the easiest way to determine which generation Orbit you have. Gen 1 tonearms (unipivot and OA2) have a bare metal aluminum armtube, while Gen 2 tonearms (OA3) have a black magnesium armtube. You can also tell by the platter – Gen 1 platters have a flat edge with no groove, while Gen 2 platters have a groove for the belt.
