AT-OC9XSH MC Phono Cartridge
Dual moving coil stereo cartridge featuring a Nude Shibata 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. Shibata profile diamond originally designed for Quadraphonic replay offers a depth of sound, combined with high frequency response that has to be heard to be believed.
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.
