TA-9000 NEO

Acoustic Signature

One of the most elabo­rate arm­tube designs in the history of high-end compo­nents, ball bea­rings used in astro­nau­tics which can hardly be surpas­sed in terms of pre­cision and low friction, an inno­vative ma­terial sym­biosis that has been thought out down to the smal­lest detail and that unites extreme rigidity and light­ness as well as the ability to absorb vibra­tions: the TA‑9000 NEO is made for the ulti­mate turntables.
