Overview of AT-ART9XA                                                                                                                                                

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.                    

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.

  • 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
