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.

Review on the Acoustic Signature Hurricane NEO in Stereo 2/2022

“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.”

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.”
