AUDIO-TECHNICA AT-OC9/III AT OC9/III ATOC9/III CARTRIDGE
- Musical excellence with a great balance of dynamics, natural harmonics and detail retrieval

The Audio-Technica AT-OC9/III is the latest evolution of the Audio-Technica AT-OC9 cartridge originally launched in 1987. Over the years the Audio-Technica AT-OC9 series has undergone a number of model changes both inside and outside Japan, and it has continued to be a best seller for over 20 years. While drawing on the basic design of the Audio-Technica AT-OC9ML/II which has been available exclusively in overseas markets and which has received critical acclaim all these years, the Audio-Technica AT-OC9/III is the result of a fresh approach based on a thorough review of the stylus tip, cantilever, magnetic circuit parts, damper and other aspects designed to track and reproduce the highest sound quality. With the new Audio-Technica AT-OC9/III cartridge you will experience musical opulence and expressiveness of sound layered on depths of silence.

New Life for Shure V15V

The Shure V15 has always been an even handed, great tracking cart. Perhaps verging on the boring, for some tastes. The JICO SAS styli retain the lush midrange, even handed presentation of the cart, but with a shot of adrenaline and perhaps a tad more revealing than the original styli. Super product!

Happy

Works a treat on my JVC quadraphonic system and despite the dreaded custom charges, it was still cheaper than modern equivalents and NOS stylus available elsewhere.

Nothing Like the Real Thing

When Shure was no longer a stylus option, and I saw JICO here n there (ahem ahem) I was suspicious, but thankfully checked the sole supplier I saw website directly, LPTunes, and got a Straight Answer ASAP to my question whether their stylus were refurbished or factory NEW, which they proved to be. Not only do my LP's play CLEARER than they did with the SHURE styluses; they actually play LOUDER! Could be Just My Imagination. Who knows?
