When planning the TA‑5000 NEO, one thought was at the forefront: to develop a tonearm at a fair price that has virtually no limitations. To realize this, it was necessary to break new ground. High-precision hybrid ball bearings made of ceramic and stainless steel, 3 layers of carbon, connected via special damping elements with 2 tonearm tubes lying one inside the other, an internal cabling made of high-purity silver and our typical benchmark manufacturing quality culminate in an innovative tonearm that is always up against the best of its guild.

Powerful & elegant
The special design and foremost the features of the TA-5000 NEO sum up to an innovative tonearm that is always up against the best of its guild.
Thanks to the internal high-purity (4N) silver wiring, the TA-5000 NEO performs with a perfect signal transport and plays notably great with any high quality cartridge.
The TA‑5000 NEO’s tonearm has a special triple-layer carbon armtube design, which is very rigid and low resonant.
Optimal tracking results are achieved by the TA-5000 NEO’s pre-tensioned high-precision hybrid ball bearings. The tonearm has an outstanding rigidity and a smooth operation because of it’s stainless steel axis.
