Tonearm TA-5000 Neo

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.

  • 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 Audioquest 5-pin phono cable (RCA)
  • Counterweight made of brass
  • Adjustable VTA & azimuth
  • SME-type mounting versions
