Product Description

Audio Technica AT-ART9XI MC Phono Cartridge is the new flagship magnetic core MC cartridge from Audio Technica, replacing the AT-ART9 and featuring a special line contact stylus on a 0.28mm diameter solid boron cantilever. 

Reference Transducer

The “ART” in the name stands for Audio-Technica Reference Transducer, a designation given only to the brand's flagship phono cartridges. The specially designed magnetic circuit boasts a 0.5mV output (1kHz, 5cm/sec), making ART9XI easy to use and capable of reproducing the most delicate expressions while ensuring dynamic playback.

The dual moving coils (fashioned from high-performance PCOCC wire) are aligned in an inverted V shape to provide high separation and wide response for clear sound localization and minimal distortion. Threaded cartridge mounting holes make installation to a headshell or integrated tonearm incredibly easy.
