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."

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.

ION TTUSB10 turntable belt

The belt fit perfectly on my daughter’s record player. Also, before I ordered, I emailed them to make sure the ION part # matched the belt they have and they assured me it would. Also, came really fast so I could bring it to my daughter in time. Great product, service, and shipping!

ORACLE ALEXANDRIA MK II

Good quality product and work perfectly fine.

Top notch supplier

I was very pleased with the service I received, reasonable cost and shipping. The belt fitted perfectly, as did the stylus. However for some reason, the later caused frequent skipping on some records, that previously had played without issue using the manufacturer supplied item. But perhaps this is just with the turntable I have, so hopefully others may experience better luck using the stylus. Thanks.

Great needle

What a difference in this and the old. Sounds great!!

Excellent

Very fast response and perfect.

Sony stylus

Incredibly fast shipping, for in the cartridge perfect and at a great price. Bought a stylus for another turntable because of the great turnaround.
