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 concept of this tone­arm com­bines an extra­ordi­narily stiff and at the same time well-dam­ped dual-layer carbon tube with an almost friction­less pre­cision ball bea­rings and a high-quality Mogami inter­nal wiring. In short: a tone­arm that har­mo­nizes with most of the top range cart­ridges. Regardless if you decide for the 9 inch or 12 inch version: the Acoustic Signature TA‑2000 NEO ensures your turn­table perfor­mance will not stay behind its possibilities.

Arm tube design

Arm tube design

The TA‑2000 NEO has an extra­ordi­nary rigid and on the other hand well-damped dual-layer arm­tube made of carbon, lea­ding to a very low resonance.

Easy adjustable

Easy adjustable

The set-up of the TA‑2000 NEO is com­for­table thanks to an anti-skating knob and VTA as well as azimuth adjust­ment. The adjust­ment temp­late provi­ded with the tone­arm helps with the exact instal­lation. Moun­ting is avai­lable for the Rega or SME norm.

Ball bearing

Ball bearing

Excellent tracking results are achieved thanks to the preci­sion minia­ture ball bearing of the TA‑2000 NEO. The stain­less steel tone­arm axis cons­truc­tion performs with a better rigidity and smooth operation.

Internal wiring

The inner copper wiring by Mogami has studio-quality. The tone­arm is sup­plied with an exter­nal 5-pin to RCA copper phono cable by Audioquest.

Test report

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.”
