AUDIO-TECHNICA AT-OC9XEB MOVING COIL CARTRIDGE

Since their introduction more than 30 years ago, Audio-Technica’s AT-OC9 Series moving coil (MC) phono cartridges have been acclaimed by listeners and reviewers worldwide for their exceptional sound quality and musical transparency. At HIGH-END Munich 2019, Audio-Technica is introducing its AT-OC9X Series, the fourth generation of this legendary range of cartridges.

"When the first AT-OC9 cartridge was introduced in 1987 it integrated previously unavailable engineering innovations with carefully chosen materials to achieve a breakthrough in sound quality," said Yosuke Koizumi, Chief Engineer of Cartridges at Audio-Technica Japan. "Since then, we have continued to improve the cartridges. Our latest AT-OC9X Series embodies the culmination of over 50 years of cartridge manufacturing experience to deliver new levels of record-playback quality and musical enjoyment." Since their introduction more than 30 years ago, Audio-Technica’s AT-OC9 Series moving coil (MC) phono cartridges have been acclaimed by listeners and reviewers worldwide for their exceptional sound quality and musical transparency. At HIGH-END Munich 2019, Audio-Technica is introducing its AT-OC9X Series, the fourth generation of this legendary range of cartridges.

Each OC9X model features a host of improvements including a new Dual Moving Coil structure, which enables the audio information in the record grooves to be separated to the left and right channels with pinpoint accuracy. This improved channel separation results in a more precise stereo image and wider frequency response.

AT-OC9X Series cartridges are available with a choice of stylus types including Special Line Contact (AT-OC9XSL), Shibata (AT-OC9XSH), microlinear (AT-OC9XML), nude elliptical (AT-OC9XEN) and bonded elliptical (AT- OC9XEB). The Special Line Contact, microlinear, and Shibata stylus models have been upgraded with a boron cantilever, while the nude elliptical and elliptical cartridges feature an aluminum cantilever. These materials were carefully selected to keep unwanted vibrations to a minimum and to reduce internal resonances for clearer, more detailed audio reproduction.

Great

Easy to order. Very helpful. Great delivery. Only one very small problem; the needle ( looks exactly like the old one) doesn’t stay up tight. Droops a little. But plays records just fine!

Great Stylus and Great Service

The new JICO stylus for an Empire LTD200 sounds great! The LP Tunes Team worked with me to identify and promptly send the perfectly fit. I plan to keep LP Tunes at the top of my list for all turntable needs.

Not yet received. Be patient. It has to travel a long way.

Old Sanyo needle

Ordered it got the correct needle within a week listened to my records the next day. Great service here just wish I could have afforded to order a couple needles but I'm listening to my music again so until the next needle save up money. Thank you for great service!

The stylus I received works well and the service was great!

Just what I needed

I bought not one but 2 Shure styluses (styli?) out of fear they won’t be available next time I need a replacement. Hassle free and no complaints.
