Our TA‑2000 NEO undoubtedly plays with the ‘big boys’ – not only because of the immaculate workmanship typical of Acoustic Signature. The tonearm combines an extraordinarily stiff and at the same time well-damped dual-layer carbon armtube with almost frictionless precision ball bearings and an internal high-quality wiring by Mogami. In short: a tonearm that harmonizes with top range cartridges. Regardless if you decide for the 9 inch or 12 inch version, the Acoustic Signature TA‑2000 NEO guarantees that your turntable’s performance will not remain below its capabilities.

SKF precision ball bearings
The TA‑2000 NEO comes with high-precision ball bearings by SKF that provide excellent control for optimal tracking results. For increased rigidity and smoothness, the tonearm axis is made of stainless steel.
A tonearm for every cartridge
An extremely rigid yet well-damped dual-layer carbon armtube effectively minimizes unwanted vibrations. The TA‑2000 NEO offers simple VTA, azimuth and anti-skating adjustment, allowing fine-tuning for optimum cartridge performance.
Thought out down to the last detail
The headshell of the TA‑2000 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‑2000 NEO’s top-of-the-line performance.
“The mechanical miracle of the TA-2000 Neo is not one iota behind the manufacturing quality of the turntable. […] The question of whether the 12-incher sounds less distorted soon became academic in view of an overwhelmingly clean spatial representation with concrete-solid definition.”

Awarded with Editor’s Choice 2023 by The Absolute Sound
The Editor’s Choice Award 2023 of The Absolute Sound is published in their march 2023 issue. Seven Acoustic Signature products are on their honorable list and the TA-2000 NEO is among them!
“Anyone who experiences how richly shaded the German can fan out dark clouds of sound from the lowest frequency depths understands the importance of this quality for the liveliness and nobility of the overall performance.”

by Matthias Boede
“With a weight of 545 grams the TA-2000 Neo from their own collection is a medium-heavy 9-inch tonearm that is also available in a 12-inch version. A stiff, well dampened dual carbon pipe, combined with a zero-play ball bearing suspension makes it the ideal partner for the Typhoon Neo. From the Typhoon Neo came the pure music. What sounds so trivial, is actually the very great art which only a few can master.”
