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.
TA-5000 NEO in silverblackgoldchrome
- Tonearm with triple-layer carbon armtube
- Low resonance, rigid tube design
- Available as 9″ and 12″ version
- Optimal tracking results due to pre-tensioned high-precision hybrid ball bearings by SKF
- Better rigidity and smooth operation due to stainless steel tonearm axis design
- Internal high-purity silver wiring (4N)
- Supplied with external Atlas Equator 5-pin phono cable (RCA)
An absolute all-rounder
The TA‑5000 NEO comes with unbeatable price-perfomance ratio and is therefore an optimal partner for all top turntables – of course also for the turntables of Acoustic Signature.
Thought out down to the smallest detail
The cranked, low-resonance headshell is firmly connected to the TA‑5000 NEO’s triple-layer armtube – the perfect ‘docking station’ for top-of-the-line cartridges!
Innovative triple-layer armtube
The TA‑5000 NEO features a highly innovative, extremely rigid tonearm tube made of three layers of carbon, connected by specially designed damping elements.
Innovative hybrid bearing
The high-precision ball bearings by SKF are pre-tensioned and made of ceramic and stainless steel, giving the TA‑5000 NEO exceptional control with outstanding tracking results.
“I heard a whole lot more of what I love about playing records when I played them on the Acoustic Signature Typhoon NEO/TA-5000 NEO setup. Enough said.”
