Dual moving coil stereo cartridge featuring a bonded Elliptical stylus and aluminium cantilever with a neodymium magnet and pure iron yoke to provide 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. An excellent affordable introduction to the characteristics of a moving coil.
Pure Copper by Ohno Continuous Casting process (PCOCC) is used for the coils to achieve the purest signal possible
Elliptical Bonded Stylus
Elliptical diamond stylus follows the groove modulation with greater precision compared to a conical stylus, offering improved frequency and phase responses whilst reducing distortion.
Threaded holes in the cartridge body enable the cartridge to be mounted on to the headshell, or integral tonearm, with just two screws - no nuts or bolts required.
Aluminium body minimises unwanted vibration for reduced resonance and superior audio reproduction.
