Sorry to have confused anyone.
In my original post, I actually referred to "a radial tracking system"
- which means, of course, a linear tone arm (and tracks along the
radius of the disc, as you rightly say) - not a radial tone arm.
The main thrust of my comment was that Goran Finnberg had actually
confused the original question (which concerned the differences
between straight and curved radial tracking arms) with linear trackers
and went to great lengths to prove that he was right (which he was)
although not understanding the question.
