AUDIO-TECHNICA AT-ART9 MC PHONO CARTRIDGE 0.5 mV
- Hearing a thousand glorious notes and blank spaces

The AT-ART9 is Audio-Technica's flagship moving-coil cartridge. Combining the craftsmanship, artistry and leading-edge engineering derived from the AT50ANV, AT-ART7 and AT-OC9/III cartridges, the AT-ART9 employs a vibration system and magnetic circuit that are the best-ever within the series thus resulting in exquisitely transparent and naturally complete sound quality. It is so startlingly honest that your ears convey to your right brain and it comes to a singularly quick conclusion - this is real music at its best. Just like the body knows real sugar from processed substitute. Still, it will throw you off - until your left brain processes this truth, logically, deductively and empirically.

 

Its new magnetic circuit design adopts permendur yoke and neodymium magnet for dramatically increased magnetic energy, extremely low noise and improved bass response.

Special line contact stylus with tip curvature radii of 40μm 7μm adopted in AT50ANV and solid boron cantilever with a 0.26 mm diameter allow accurate transfer of music signals from the stylus tip to the generating coil.

Dual moving coil for high separation and wide response.

Hybrid body inherited from the AT-ART7 cartridge design to suppress unwanted parasitic and deleterious resonances. The housing is made of machined aluminum materials to dissipate parasitic resonances for unimpeded sound quality and clarity.

PCOCC coil wiring for direct and pure signal transmission

High-quality brass screws for headshell attachment offers the best match for optimal sound quality.

at first i was upset, at some vendors that i do business with my address seems to change
but, they had this woman there who asked if i would let them try sending again, i emailed my address to her, I'm glad she did ask me, i got the belt put it on and the record player has been working like new. I'll do business with this company again.
