Separately Available Stereo Tonearm
This is the high quality precision-made TA-2050 stereo tonearm, virtually identical to the one that is standard equipment on the distinguished SR-2050C turntable, but now available as a separate item for those who desire the ultimate in sensitivity, tracking accuracy, tonal quality and service life. The only real difference between the TA-2050 and the tonearm of the SR-2050C is that the TA-2050's cuing control is integrated in its mounting base. Radiating functional beauty the TA-2050 is easily mounted on any quality turntable assembly, and will pay rich stereo dividends to its proun owners.
Light, sensitive instrument
The sensitive TA-2050 offers excellent resistance against bending and twisting, and expels proper resonance outside of the audible frequency range.
Very light, it allows the stylus to track the record groove fautfully ta an angle of 15 degrees to the record surface.
Aluminum Alloy Head Shell (1)
Designes to avert record-damaging "skips" - the headshell of the TA-2050 is made specially light punched aluminum alloy. Its edge is specially bent for increased rigidity and to help eliminate resonance, and the connecting plug, meeting the EIA standard, has special gold-plated, long-lasting terminals to assure safe connection.
Oil-Damped Arm Lifter (2)
The TA-2050 is complete with a silicon oil-damped arm lifter. A damp that gently lowers and raises the tonearm on the record, it permits even beginners to handle the tonearm without fear of damaging record or stylus.
Inside Force Canceler (3)
Designed from the standpoint of acoustics, dynamics and engineering to eliminate disruptive inside force, the TA-2050's inside force canceler or anti-skating device is free of the inertia of the tonearm and can be adjusted easily in proportion to the tracking force.
Main Weight (4)
The heliciod main weight can be rotated very easily to achieve horizontal balance and also to produce a stylus pressure of 0,5 to 3 grams in direct read-out 0,5 grams steps
Sub Weight (5)
To permit using the tonearm with a heavy 14 to 19 grams cartridge, the TA-2050 is equipped with a sub weight to aid in horizontal balancing.
Lateral Balancer (6)
The TA-2050 is complete with a lateral balancer to permit accurate adjustment of the lateral balance of the tonearm.
Friction-Free Bearings (7)
The TA-2050's bearing mechanism ensures friction-free vertical and horizontal rotary movements of the tonearm, enabling it to offer the same movenent in every direction in the record groove.
Adjustable Tonearm Height (8)
The TA-2050 can be secured at any desired height simply by moving it up or down and tightening the height adjustment screws.
Plug-in Output Plug (9)
The output cord for the tonearm has a 5 pin plug which only need be inserted into the output socket inside the tonearm base. No messy soldering is needed.
