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.
TA-9000 NEO in silverblackgold
- Tonearm with extensively damped multi-structure aluminum armtube
- Available as 9″ and 12″ version
- Perfect tracking results due to frictionless, pre-tensioned high-precision ball bearings by Timken
- Better rigidity and smooth operation due to NEO stainless steel tonearm axis design
- Internal high-purity silver wiring (4N)
- Supplied with external Audioquest 5-pin phono cable (1.5 m, RCA or XLR)
Made for ultimate turntables
Our reference tonearm is the perfect match for the best turntables in the world – like the Acoustic Signature Invictus NEO.
High-end ball bearing
The outstanding pre-tensioned ball bearings of the TA‑9000 NEO are also used in astronautics. They can hardly be surpassed in terms of precision and low friction and guarantee perfect tracking results.
The internal wiring of the TA‑9000 NEO is made of high-purity silver (4N). The external 5-pin phono cable by Audioquest is available either with RCA or XLR connectors. A massive titanium headshell is among the upgrade options.
Precision in gold
The TA-9000 NEO is available in silver anodized as well as in black anodized. The black version may be upgraded with a 24K gold-plated counterweight. Of course there is also a completely 24K gold-plated edition.
