AT-OC9XSL MC Phono Cartridge
Dual moving coil stereo cartridge featuring a Nude Special Line Contact 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. With a special Line contact stylus as featured in our flagship ART1000, this diamond profile offers the ultimate in accurate sonic reproduction with a sense of space and realism to all instruments that few other configurations can achieve.
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.
