AUDIO-TECHNICA AT-MONO3/LP AT MONO3/LP ATMONO3/LP CARTRIDGE - MC MONO
- True mono cartridge for true mono fidelity

Mono True Cartridge
The AT-MONO3/LP is a true mono cartridge - one of a select few in the world! A true mono cartridge is designed, wired and built only to retrieve signals from the record grooves in the horizontal plane. The groove of a monaural recording is modulated only in the horizontal plane. Stereo recordings, on the other hand, are cut into the vinyl at a forty-five degree angle with a separate channel of information on each of the grove walls, thus requiring the stylus to pick up signals in both the horizontal and vertical plane. As a stereo cartridge sums the channels internally, it picks up noise from the vertical plane of the record grooves. Interestingly, in a mono record much of the surface noise is in the vertical plane, so avoiding this plane is beneficial. By not even picking up or amplifying this information you eliminate a lot of the noise from mono records that you hear when played back through a stereo cartridge.

High Output Moving Coil Mono Cartridge
The Audio Technica AT-MONO3/LP cartridge a joy to hear. A high output moving coil cartridge of excellent production quality and wound with PCOCC coil for signal purity, it is designed to deliver excellent fidelity and superb clarity when playing monaural (mono) records. With its high output of 1.2mV, it can be used without additional pre-preamplification or a MC transformer in the signal path.

Our listening experience with this fine specimen of monophonic reproduction has been left us with a deeper appreciation and enjoyment of mono recordings. The Audio Technica AT-MONO3/LP capably renders the detail, sound stage, harmonic layering, dynamic contrast, low frequency response and musical verity that seemed lacking or constrained in others. Maybe it's because it's a Moving Coil mono cartridge? It's a distinction that is well-founded - along with its superior design and execution.

Proven in use for many years in Japan, the Audio-Technica AT-MONO3/LP cartridge in now available in the U.S. It brings back the pure joy of discovery and listening pleasure for mono record playing.

Problem solved

Have had issue with speed (45rpm) when starting to play a 33rpm. The belt is the culprit. Thought it was switch. Compared new belt to old and can certainly tell it was stretched. Shipping was sent right away. Glad they had it, Thanks guys.

Terrific customer service

I had terrific customer service, I was trying to switch out a part on a turntable, switching out a DJ straight tonearm for an s-shaped tonearm. Wasn't sure it was going to work they offered to let me send it back if it didn't. It worked great. They returned several phone calls and made every attempt to answer my questions. Thank you!

I also purchased a new cartridge a CF 95 SE and was not sure about the carbon fiber cantilever. They answered all my questions the cartridges is absolutely outstanding I love it!

LP Tunes is definitely recommended. Thank you!
