Product Description

The Audio Technica AT-ART20 dual moving coil phono cartridge is the latest model in the ART series and maintains the superb hi-end analogue sound reproduction of the ART series.

The cartridge is optimised to get the benefits of a slightly higher output magnetic core. Making the pre-amp used less critical. Additionally, the line contact stylus gives a high frequency response beyond 50,000Hz

Extended frequency response

The magnetic core makes the frequency response of the AT-ART20 extended and detailed. Low frequencies are reproduced with maximum clarity, force and emotion. 
Vocals maintain the full variety and emotion of the human voice while the full performance is revealed anew for the listener. The sound depth is rich and spacial imaging is precise, conveying the original environment with ease.

Best Possible Materials

Audio-Technica know-how goes into every cartridge, the best materials are used along with advanced processing techniques. This creates a magnetic core moving coil cartridge that is optimally structured to reproduce sound with the full power and emotion of the original recording.

Unparalleled Emotion

All the detail in the music is reproduced accurately with full ambience. The top-of-the-range AT-ART20 gleans a remarkable amount of information from the groove. The high-resolution playback captures all the musical detail with a realistic sound field. Additionally, vocals are expressive while the original dynamic qualities of an instrument are maintained.

Gold Plated Terminals

The gold plating on the terminal pins is 30 times that of conventional cartridges. This reduces contact resistance, essential when the output is under 1mV. Top-quality materials including titanium are used to reduce resonance resulting in a pure sound.

Polished Titanium Body

The Sabae City, Fukui Prefecture in Japan has been renowned for its advanced cutting and polishing technology for over 100 years. This expertise has been used to produce a titanium body that has an organic design with a beautifully curved surface. The cutting technology has enabled the thickness of the titanium to be reduced. This reduces the weight and the mass of the cartridge.

Magnetic Core Made in Japan

The AT-ART20 features a newly designed magnetic circuit that increases the efficiency for a more realistic sound. The output voltage is raised 15% without increasing the mass or impedance. This is done by making the front yoke thicker to improve the magnetic flux density.

New Stylus/Cantilever Assembly

Another new feature of the cartridge is the redesigned stylus/cantilever assembly. This is lighter and more responsive with a strengthened cantilever to improve the high-frequency response. Titanium is also used by the tip reinforcement plate that holds the stylus tip in place. Consequently, the mass is reduced.
