As a matter of principle, Acoustic Signature could not allow themselves to call the TA-500 Neo an entry-level tonearm. The TA-500 Neo is simply far too good for that! It features a rigid, low resonance dual-layer carbon arm tube with high precision miniature ball bearings, housed within a stainless steel pivot point axis design, plus with its Rega-SME type mounting base it can easily be utilised as an alternative tonearm for Rega-SME turntables.


  • Tonearm Design: 9″ tonearm with dual-layer carbon arm tube. Low resonance, rigid tube design. Excellent tracking results due to precision miniature ball bearings. Better rigidity and smooth operation due to stainless steel tonearm axis design

 “It was to the credit of the MCX2 and the company’s smal­lest tone­arm, the TA‑500 NEO, that the musi­cal sequen­ces were as clear as glass”

“Perfectly crafted and equip­ped with a superb lift, the TA-500 Neo is very plea­sant to operate.

The elegant, noble tone­arm guides any pickup safely, the platter rotates in a stoic, control­led manner – the sonic result is beyond any doubt. This is money well spent.”
