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.

Just as promised

The styli were a perfect fit for a stereo 31 years old. Have been enjoying my vinyl again. Fast service to have it received in Australia. Highly recommended.

Easy fix!

Changing the stylus out was easy and it is working great!

Thank you for my B&O belt and it is now time to spin some vinyl!

Still works.

This replaced one (AT record "sonic broom") I bought in 1977 and it still works really well.

Great recomendation!

The model of stylus I ordered was out of stock so a substitute was recommended. I purchased the recommended stylus and I received it in record (no pun intended) time! It sounds great and I am very pleased with my purchase! Thank you!

Review

My new needle works perfectly! Still listening to albums. I have a lot of great music from before CDs. Thanks!

Upgrade on AT LP60XBT

While it took some time to ship to Canada it was worth the wait. Noticeable sound improvement, particularly with bottom end. Very satisfied.
