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

Reinvigorated my turntable

Just what I needed to improve the sound.

Fast delivery and good communication

The order arrived in a timely manner, and LP provided good communication throughout the process. It feels good to have a needle that I know is unblemished and I can play my vinyl worry free.

Hard to match what I needed

Bottom Line up front: quick response but some cost for the return and refund.
In spite of having the model number from the Technics manual, the item shipped did not fit. LP Tunes was quick to respond with a return authorization, BUT as warned, I had to pay postage to return the misfit as well as a 15% restocking fee.
I bought the replacement from an obvious and popular source which paid shipping and offered free returns if needed.

Replacement for Sony ND-5G ND5G stylus
Customer (Philadelphia, US)
Sony ND-5G ND5G stylus worked out great

I am restoring a 1983 Sony PS-LX22 turntable and was looking for a reliable and knowledgeable source for a replacement stylus. This Sony model has a head shell that's really hard to find so getting a good cartridge to fit on the one i had was very important. I looked no further than LP Tunes as they really know what they're doing when it comes to matching the right stylus / cartridge to an older head shell. Always happy with them.

JICO replacement Shure VN-35HE stylus
Donald Belina (Little Falls, US)
Sure V15 reborn!

My SME 3009 tone arm and V15 III cartridge are 45 years old and obviously needed some help. After considering a completely new cartridge, I decided to replace just the stylus with a Jico VN-35HE. WOW!!! I couldn’t believe how my old vinyl came to life. The instruments now sound as if they are playing live in my living room.
The service from LP Tunes was terrific! My order arrived a day earlier than originally scheduled.
Thanks again to Jico and LP Tunes….I couldn’t be happier.
