AT-OC9XML MC Phono Cartridge
Dual moving coil stereo cartridge featuring a nude Micro-linear stylus and boron cantilever, Neodymium magnet and permendur (cobalt-iron soft ferromagnetic alloy) yoke for increased magnetic energy.
The next Generation of the legendary OC9 cartridge series
Since its introduction more than 30 years ago, Audio-Technica’s pioneering moving coil OC9 cartridge series has been prized by demanding vinyl listeners and professional critics alike for its musical transparency, expression of sound and precise construction. Micro-linear complex diamond profile enabling higher frequency response, detail like never before experienced and limiting inner groove distortion. Micro-linear diamond profile provides low record and stylus wear.
Threaded holes in the cartridge body enable the cartridge to be mounted on to the head-shell, or integral tonearm, with just two screws - no nuts or bolts required.
Aluminium body minimizes unwanted vibration for reduced resonance and superior audio reproduction
