"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.

This improved channel separation results in a more precise stereo image and wider frequency response.

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.

Very pleased

This is a perfect fit for my Aiwa old school shelf system. My new record sounds great. I was afraid to play it with the old original stylus so I ordered this one. It came supper fast and I am very pleased with my purchase. I would recommend LP Tunes.
