HIGHEND Munich 2024

TA-10000 NEO

Our most inno­vative design ever deve­loped. The use of ultra tight tole­rance, bespoke bea­rings that are DLC trea­ted to make them ultra durable, and further reduce friction by over 50 % com­pared to any other high class bea­ring in the market. Our DLC bea­rings are simply the best in terms of preci­sion, low fric­tion and inno­vative vibration-absor­bing material. A symbio­sis that has been thought out through to the smallest and most intricate detail. Resol­ving the contra­diction between stiff­ness and lightness in move­ment making the TA-10000 NEO the ulti­mate partner for the ulti­mate turntables.

Our brand new approach to height adjust­ment (VTA) on the fly is free of the negative effects, that the cons­truc­tion of move­ments have. We ensure the superb sonic quali­ties of the TA-10000 NEO are not nega­tively influen­ced by com­fort features.

TA-10000 NEO
The new Acoustic Signature TA-10000 NEO tonearm

Special features:

  • Tonearm with exten­sively damped multi-struc­ture alumi­num armtube
  • Available as 9″ and 12″ version
  • Perfect tracking results due to friction­less, pre-tensioned high-precision ball bearings DLC covered
  • Better rigidity and smooth opera­tion due to a new NEO stainless steel tonearm axis design
  • Internal high-purity silver wiring (4N)
  • Supplied with external Atlas Equator 5-pin phono cable (1.5 m, RCA or XLR)
  • VTA adjustment on the fly possible
  • Counter­weight made of brass with extra fine adjust­ment and clamping
  • Optional headshell made of titanium

Tango Apex NEO

Balanced phono preamp

The new Tango Apex NEO ist a balan­ced phono preamp with a strictly double mono cons­truc­tion. The preamp is desig­ned with an extra housing per channel, a dedi­cated Power supply per channel and a phono amp per channel. All features of the Tango Apex NEO are remote con­trolled.

Special features:

  • 3 inputs: 1 x balan­ced XLR and 2 x unba­lan­ced RCA
  • All signal switching is carried out with ultra high-quality miniature signal relays
  • Adjustable gain for each input (indivi­dually adjus­table): 40 dB, 50 dB, 60 dB and 70 dB
  • Input impe­dance indivi­dually adjus­table for each input: 47, 100 , 220 , 470 , 1 k, 47 k and all values resulting from parallel connection.
  • Input capa­citance: basic capa­citance approx. <=100  pF, switch­able capaci­tances for unba­lanced inputs: 100 pF and 220 pF; Two capaci­tances can be switched on, resul­ting in three values (C1, C2, C1+C2)
  • Subsonic filter: -24 dB. Ope­rating frequency 20 Hz
  • 2 outputs: 1 x XLR and 1 x RCA, maxi­mum output voltage 8.5 V RMS switch­able as fixed output or as adjus­table output (volume control in 100 steps)
  • Built-in head­phone amplifier: maxi­mum output voltage 8.5 V RMS
  • Power supply unit: separate shunt power supply with 25 VA per channel and one sepa­rate power supply with 25 VA for the micro­pro­cessor control. Digital control galva­nically isola­ted from the analog power supply.
  • S/N: e.g. -73 dB at 60 dB ampli­fication
  • Frequency response: +-0.13 dB RIAA equa­lized
  • Distortion factor: 0.06 %
  • Crosstalk attenua­tion: better -90 dB due to double mono design
  • Weight: 34 kg

Tango Reference NEO

Proces­sing the delicate phono signal is one of the biggest chal­lenges that amplifier designers have to face. The Tango Reference NEO’s new reso­nance-optimized and anti-magnetic chassis is made of solid aluminum block. The phono amplifier features an over-dimen­sioned power supply with toroidal trans­former that is located on a separate board to ensure absolute current stabi­lity. Both assemb­lies are moun­ted on a special shiel­ding steel plate to avoid any inter­ference with the phono signal. The Tango Reference NEO consists of indivi­dually selec­ted high quality compo­nents. It’s semi-active RIAA equali­zation achieve extremely precise values with a maximum devia­tion of less than 0.1 dB from the ideal curve. An elabo­rate single-ended output stage desig­ned in Class A guaran­tees minimal distor­tion and very low hum and noise. The Tango Reference is a perfect base for high-resolu­tion, fasci­nating 3D-imaging and invol­ving musica­lity of the phono signal.
