AT33PTG/II MC Phono Cartridge
Featuring an advanced nude tapered boron and extra weight reduction, this model succeeds in thinning down and shortening the cantilever, compared to the AT33PTG. The coil impedance is also refined from 17W to 10W. We successfully improved the basic performance and sound quality of the cartridge. It also has a high performance and long-life Micro-linear stylus, which is a specially polished line contact stylus. This has better high range performance than the conical or elliptical stylus due to its small curvature radius and realises low distortion and expanded high range reproduction even when playing at the inner circumference of records. And the consistency of the line contact shape is one of its main features with an average product lifetime of around 1000 hours.
Outstanding Magnetic properties
Neodymium magnet with dramatically enhanced magnetic energy and permendur yoke with high saturation flux density and outstanding magnetic properties.
Enables purer transmission
The PCOCC coil enables purer transmission because it is not subject to grain boundaries in the direction of transmission.
Limits unnecessary vibration
The VC mould that affixes the coil is made with hard synthetic resin containing potassium titanate to make it strong and rigid.
