At the TA-2000 we use precision miniature bearings from the manufacturer SKF. The bearings are added with minimal pre pressure for zero backlash to achieve a minimum friction and high stability. When it comes to arm tubes - 2 mutually exclusive conditions need to be combined. Maximum stiffness and low resonance achieved by internal damping. Very stiff materials are hard and therefore very susceptible to resonances. The solution is a custom made Dual carbon tube. The two pipes are joined by connecting elements. This creates a very rigid tube with a high internal damping and resonance. When you consider that the signals of a pickup are very small you can well imagine, any decision about cable has great influence.
We use a OFC copper cable for internal wiring. To set up a pickup perfect it is required to compensate the possible misalignments of the stylus. The TA-2000 allows you to exactly adjust the Azimut angle. For this you simply open 3 small screws and then the arm tube can be swiveled for ± 5 degrees so the angle can be adjusted perfect for each cartridge. If these screws are again tightened the arm tube sits stiff and perfectly adjusted. This fantastic piece of Art is available in 9, 10 and 12 inch length.
