AUDIO-TECHNICA AT-50ANV AT50ANV LIMITED EDITION MC PHONO CARTRIDGE
- Conveys with unequalled purity thousands and more of harmonic notes and blank spaces

Audio-Technica has been renowned for its phono cartridges for 50 years, and the moving-coil AT50ANV exemplifies the company's distinguished excellence. The unequalled limited-edition AT50ANV has a unique air-core design that employs a non-magnetic armature for the coil frame, yielding exquisite resolution, fine musical detail and a natural, transparent, full-bodied sound quality - reproducing with purity a thousand and more harmonic notes and blank spaces so honestly glorious it connects our ears with our soul and brain. Its new magnetic proprietary circuit design and neodymium magnets deliver almost twice the output of previous cartridges for extremely low noise and improved bass response.

Non magnetic core MC type developed as a 50th anniversary commemorative model uses a newly developed pure titanium non magnetic armature as the coil winding frame. This provides organically natural and clear sound quality and ability to express three-dimensional sound fields.

Newly designed magnetic circuit that maximizes magnetic energy. The permendur magnetic circuit parts located around the magnet have also been newly designed to maximize the strength of the intensive magnetic field in the coil gap. This magnetic circuit increases the output voltage, and also enhances playback capability in the medium to low-frequency range.

Special line contact stylus with tip curvature radii of 40μm 7μm and solid boron cantilever with a 0.26 mm diameter. They enable exact transfer of music signals read by the stylus tip to the magneto coil.

Machined pure titanium base that supports the magnetic circuit and vibration system is made of precisely machined pure titanium materials. This serves as a solid base to frame a stable and wide soundstage and playback capability.

Hybrid body that reduces unnecessary parasitic resonance. The housing is made of machined aluminum materials and the cover is made of hard plastic materials. Together they dissipate parasitic resonances that smear and create spurious harmonics. With virtually minimal resonance, you'll experience see through clarity, musical air and optimal sound quality.

Quad hybrid lead wires with a balanced blend of gold clad, 7N-OFC, PCOCC and OFC are used in pursuit of the ideal balance with the main cartridge unit.

Stylus for Signet TK-4Ep TK4Ep cartridge

Reinvigorated my turntable

Just what I needed to improve the sound.

Fast delivery and good communication

The order arrived in a timely manner, and LP provided good communication throughout the process. It feels good to have a needle that I know is unblemished and I can play my vinyl worry free.

Hard to match what I needed

Bottom Line up front: quick response but some cost for the return and refund.
In spite of having the model number from the Technics manual, the item shipped did not fit. LP Tunes was quick to respond with a return authorization, BUT as warned, I had to pay postage to return the misfit as well as a 15% restocking fee.
I bought the replacement from an obvious and popular source which paid shipping and offered free returns if needed.

Replacement for Sony ND-5G ND5G stylus

Sony ND-5G ND5G stylus worked out great

I am restoring a 1983 Sony PS-LX22 turntable and was looking for a reliable and knowledgeable source for a replacement stylus. This Sony model has a head shell that's really hard to find so getting a good cartridge to fit on the one i had was very important. I looked no further than LP Tunes as they really know what they're doing when it comes to matching the right stylus / cartridge to an older head shell. Always happy with them.
