The Ortofon TA-100 tonearm combines familiar looks and construction with a modern design where the emphasis is placed on rigorous quality and maximization of the performance. It is a static balanced gimbal type arm, which makes it easy to use and adjust for optimal VTF settings.
Equipped with a standard headshell connector, TA-100 can easily be adjusted in accordance with the included mounting template.
The TA-100 has a standard 5-pin DIN connector for tonearm cable.
The tonearm geometry allows for a Baerwald alignment (also the IEC recommendations).
The TA-100 can ideally be combined with all SPU cartridges. The heavier counterweight is however important for the SPU-users and can be acquired separately.
