Acoustic Signature TA5000 Neo

Description

When plan­ning the TA‑5000 NEO, one thought was at the fore­front: to deve­lop a tone­arm at a fair price that has virtu­ally no limi­ta­tions. To realize this, it was neces­sary to break new ground. High-preci­sion hybrid ball bea­rings made of cera­mic and stain­less steel, 3 layers of carbon, con­nec­ted via special dam­ping ele­ments with 2 tone­arm tubes lying one inside the other, an inter­nal cab­ling made of high-purity silver and our typical bench­mark manufac­turing quality cul­minate in an inno­vative tone­arm that is always up against the best of its guild.

Special features:

  • Tonearm with triple-layer carbon armtube
  • Low resonance, rigid tube design
  • Available as 9″ and 12″ version
  • Optimal tracking results due to pre-tensioned high-precision hybrid ball bearings by SKF
  • Better rigidity and smooth operation due to stainless steel tonearm axis design
  • Internal high-purity silver wiring (4N)
  • Supplied with external Audioquest 5-pin phono cable (RCA)
  • Counterweight made of brass
  • Adjustable VTA & azimuth
  • Anti-skating knob
  • SME-type mounting versions
  • 5-year warranty (with registration)
