AUDIO-TECHNICA AT-F3/III AT F3/III ATF3/III PHONO CARTRIDGE

The Audio-Technica AT-F3/III stereo moving coil cartridge lets the music flow naturally from the grooves. This is achieved through a combination of special technical features each designed to capture more from the record grooves: the dual moving coil design, elliptical stylus, aluminum pipe cantilever and the vertical stabilizer mechanism.

Features
- Neodymium magnet for dramatically increased magnetic energy
- PCOCC used for coils and terminal pins for pure transmissions
- Dual moving coils for high separation and wide response
- Durable construction dedicated to achieving increased rigidity for improved signal-to-noise ratio

Reviews & Feedback
Just wanted to let you know that I received the AT-F3/III Wednesday and got it up and running. I mounted it on my REGA P3-24 using the Denneson Soundtractor, tracking at 2 grams and using a 2mm spacer under the arm. All I can say is WOW! A-T really improved on the original AT-F3/II. Sound is so much smoother and the shift to medium compliance is a HUGE +. It does very well on the RB-301 arm and is an unbelievable bargain at it's price...which I'm sure won't last long...

I have to tell you that I had an ORTO Salsa prior to the AT and I have to say that the AT is really a better cartridge...even though the Orto is twice as expensive. The Orto is just to HOT and in-you-face. Also, it tended to wobble a tad similar to the Grado dance. The AT just let's the music flow and makes you forget all the technical aspects and headaches you just suffered in tonearm/cart setup... This one's a WINNER!

Thanks for making this available,
JA

Fit perfectly

My turntable is up and running. Good as new

Product is excellent, JP Tunes not so much.

High quality Stylus worth every penny. Not as good as the SAS but very clear all over sound.

Classic music

Ordered a new needle for my turntable which is 40 years old and they match it perfectly sounds great could not be happier thanks so much

LP Tunes Nagaoka MP500 Pre-mount

As posted by a previous reviewer, I found that the headshell is angled a bit uphill, so I had to compensate by raising the tail of my SME tonearm a bit. With just a touch of twist of the cartridge, it lined right up on the protractor and cartridge tracking is excellent. Sonics of the MP-500 thus far are excellent.

Finally

I just received the stylus . It is mounted on a 30 cartridge and sounds great. I am just getting back into records after many years of CDs. It's is exactly what I hoped.
