Quality ‘Made in Germany’
Lovingly handcrafted in Germany, the TA‑1000 NEO scores with cardanic precision ball bearings that provide excellent control and a stainless steel tonearm axis for more rigidity and smoothness.
Thought out down to the last detail
The headshell of the TA‑1000 NEO offers virtually no surface for unwanted resonances. The internal MOGAMI studio-quality copper wiring and the included Audioquest 5‑pin copper phono cable contribute to the TA‑1000 NEO’s excellent performance.
A real multi-talent
An extra rigid yet well-damped dual-layer carbon armtube effectively minimizes unwanted vibrations. Of course the TA‑1000 NEO offers VTA, azimuth and anti-skating adjustment, allowing fine-tuning for optimum cartridge performance.
To match the look of your turntable, the TA‑1000 NEO is available in various finishes – including 24‑carat gold plating. In addition to the brass counterweight, an add-on weight for heavy cartridges is also included.
“In absolute terms, a closer approach to the real thing. Still, this is a remarkable achievement at its asking price.”
