TA-2000 NEO

Acoustic Signature

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.

Test reports

Testreport Verona NEO, TA-2000 NEO and MCX4 in image hifi 2/2024

“The two excel­lent arms are in no way infe­rior to the high quality of the drive unit. The long arm plays a little more quietly than the short one, and picks up the bass even more effort­lessly. In return, the short arm is almost more dynamic. …Those who can afford both arms should consider them­selves lucky.”

Acoustic Signature Verona NEO and TA-2000 NEO review in Stereo 2/2024

“Per­haps it helps to point out that fans of rock styles will get on well with the nine-inch stan­dard version, while lovers of sym­phonic music and opera should opt for twelve inches from the start. Or you can do as we did: Treat your­self to both tone­arms – and then meticu­lously select the ideal pickup for each. A cele­bration for the analog heart!”

TA-2000 NEO review in Audio & Video Latvia

“The TA-2000 NEO’s 9-inch tone­arm has a solid bea­ring housing that per­fectly matches the look of the turn­table. Its rigid and hard tube is crea­ted using Dual Layer techno­logy, two layers are placed inside each other. Low-friction ball bearings are produ­ced by the SKF company, inter­nal cable by Mogami is another name of the top league manufac­turer.”

Hurricane NEO & TA-2000 NEO review in Stereoplay 08/2023

“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.”

Test review Typhoon NEO, TA-2000 NEO and MCX 3 in Audio 06/2021

“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.”
