Audio Technica AT-ART9XA Moving Coil Cartridge

£1,299

The “ART” in the model number stands for Audio-Technica Reference Transducer, a designation that we give only to our flagship phono cartridges. Compared with the magnetic core used in most MC cartridges, non-magnetic core cartridges are free from magnetic distortion, allowing for natural timbre and a precise sound field. Although conventional non-magnetic cores struggle with output voltage, the AT-ART9XA features a newly designed coil armature with an improved output voltage of 0.2 mV (1 kHz, 5 cm/sec). The dual moving coils (fashioned from high-performance PCOCC wire) are aligned in an inverted V shape to provide high separation and wide response. Threaded cartridge mounting holes make installation to a headshell or integrated tonearm incredibly easy.

An update of the AT-ART7, the AT-ART9XA non-magnetic core MC cartridge features a Shibata stylus on a 0.28 mm diameter solid boron cantilever.

Features 

  • Non-magnetic core moving coil cartridge offers superior spatial representation

  • Dual moving coils are aligned in an inverted V shape, providing high separation and wide response for clear sound localization and minimal distortion

  • Shibata stylus ensures accurate high and mid-low range reproduction, and the 0.28 mm diameter solid boron cantilever provides excellent response characteristics

  • Neodymium magnet and permendur yoke significantly increase magnetic energy

  • Redesigned coil armature provides an output voltage of 0.2 mV (1 kHz, 5 cm/sec)

  • PCOCC coils ensure high-fidelity transmission

  • Machined aluminum base supports both the magnetic circuit and the vibration system, ensuring excellent playback stability
  • Hybrid body of machined aluminum and high-rigidity plastic reduces undesirable parasitic resonance

  • Threaded cartridge mounting holes allow easy installation to a headshell or integrated tonearm
