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.

Philips Electronic 312 Turntable Replacement Belt

Exactly as ordered

Thanks for the speedy service in getting my new turntable belt to me all the way in New Zealand. It took just a few minutes to install, and was the perfect fit.

Killer combination LP Tunes premounted MP500

I bought the pre-mounted Mp500 and WOW right out of the box it sounded great. VTA is adjusted top of cartridge plane with record down force 1.56 grams. But after about 20 to 30 hours the sound stage became so much better. I am re discovering my record collection. I liked the ortofon 2M Black too but this is my preferred cartridge. I listen to Rock, chamber music and full orchestra, all are sounding great to my ears.

Highly recommended.

LP Tunes re: MCS stylus

Exactly what I was looking for! Quality product and fantastic sound! Ordered two, one for now and the other for later, but not 25,000 hours later! Who knew? Going to order two more because we can’t stop a good thing now! Oh yeah, super fast service too!
