Pioneer PA-5000


The PA-5000 employs a long aluminium alloy pipe arm with an effective length of 250mm and this has triple the strength of conventional aluminium arms.

It is also very effective in countering the harmful partial resonance caused by bends in the arm pipe and twisting.

The arm pipe and the pipe holder incorporate a tough fixed chucking system which employs hexagon socket head screws. This system keeps the undesirable resonance to the minimum and assures stable tracking with light-tracking-force record play thanks to the high compliance cartridge.

A magnesium alloy which is not only lightweight but also displays sufficient rigidity and internal loss is used for the headshell in order to eliminate resonance.

This material reduces the adverse effects of the headshell's resonance and so the high compliance cartridge can perform to the absolute best of its ability.
