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

Pickering PDE Stylus

This stylus worked perfectly with the Pickering cartridge mounted on a Lafayette T-2000 turntable. Thank you for your service on this difficult to find part.

PERFECTION for Shure V15V-P!!!

After 25 years, I decided to resurrect my old Technics SL-D30 turntable from the attic. It has a Shure V15V-P (P-mount) that I bought in 1984. It still sounds good, but it just seems as if something is missing. Granted, my ears are not what they used to be, but I felt it was time to replace the 40-year-old stylus anyway. Since Shure is no longer made, I was leery if any other brand would work or sound good in the old cartridge. Thankfully, I came across JICO. After contemplating if I should get the boron cantilever (SAS/B) or the Sapphire (SAS/S), I decided to spend the extra money for the sapphire. It arrived in 3 days and fit perfectly into the Shure cartridge. When I played the first song, I gasped! Wow, just WOW!!!!! I am lost for words to describe the sound. The treble, mids, and bass are equal and exceptional. The realism, clarity, and sound stage are utter perfection! I am hearing so many sounds that I never heard before. The unbelievable quality actually brought me to tears on certain nostalgic songs. This stylus is far better than the original one that was supplied with the V15V-P. I am so glad I decided to keep my old Shure cartridge. THANK YOU, JICO for making an outstanding upgrade!!
