AT-OC9XMLThe 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. Micro linear complex diamond profile enabling higher frequency response, a detail like never before experienced and limiting inner groove distortion. The micro linear diamond profile provides low record and stylus wear.

• Features nude Microlinear stylus and boron cantilever which provides lower distortion and high transient response•

A neodymium magnet and permendur yoke provides dramatically increased magnetic energy

• Threaded inserts in the cartridge body enable the cartridge to be mounted on to the headshell or integral tonearm with just two screws – no nuts required

• Aluminium body minimizes unwanted vibration for reduced resonance and a superior audio reproduction

• Pure Copper by Ohno Continuous Casting process (PCOCC) is used for the coils to achieve pure signal transfer

Micro linear Stylus

Micro linear diamond profile offers a high-frequency response with less wear and distortion than elliptical or conventional linear contact styli.

Easy mounting

Threaded holes in the cartridge body enable the cartridge to be mounted on to the headshell, or integral tonearm, with just two screws M2.6 – no nuts or bolts required.
