AT-ART9MC Moving Coil Cartridge


Audio-Technica’s flagship magnetic core MC type cartridge with very high quality magnetic circuit.
The AT-ART9 inherits the basic magnetic design from the AT50ANV, which was developed as our 50th anniversary model. Also, it reproduces the highest-quality sound using the vibration system from the AT-OC9/III.

Neodymium magnet and permendur yoke have drastically increased the magnetic energy
A neodymium magnet is employed with a maximum energy product BHmax of 50[kJ/m3] whilst a permendur yoke is used with a high saturation flux density and Excellent magnetic materials.

Hybrid body that reduces unnecessary parasitic resonance
The housing is made of machined aluminium materials and the cover is made of hard plastic materials. This disperses parasitic resonance and results in clear sound quality.

Machined aluminium base
The base that supports the magnetic circuit and vibration system is made of machined aluminium material. This enables it to serve as a solid base to support stable playback capability.

High-separation, wide-response dual moving coil
The basic structure is an original MC type, with separate cylindrical coils to the left and right channels. Since power is generated independently in each of the left and right channels, this structure offers truly superior separation. If the signal from the opposite channel escapes, this can cause intermodulation distortion and have a decisive impact on audio quality and how the stereo sound spreads. The structure of this product ensures a clear and smooth sound. Additionally, the two coils have a reverse-V shape which reduces effective moving mass as seen from the stylus tip, limiting unnecessary movement of the coil and further eliminating distortion.

Special line contact stylus and solid boron cantilever with a 0.26 mm diameter
The stylus tip is a special line contact type with a 40 µm × 7 µm curvature radius (used in the AT50ANV) and a solid boron cantilever with a 0.26 mm diameter. This allows accurate transfer of music signals read by the stylus tip to the magnetic coil.

High-sound-quality brass mounting screws
Two brass mounting screws are provided to attach the cartridge to the shell. They are optimally suited to the high sound quality of the cartridge itself.

PCOCC coil
The PCOCC coil enables purer transmission because it does not produce grain boundaries in the direction of the transmission.

At-ART9
Grew up using AT carts and loved them. Nice to Know they haven't lost their touch. This replaces a SoundSmith MIMC MI cart which is a masterpiece in it's own right but i just don't like MI carts I also owned a Grado Statement MI a while back and the same reaction just TOO mellow for Me. I also own a Sumiko BlackBird, Dynavector 17D3 and an Ortofon Cadenza Red .The AT to me is a deal at twice the Price, Not to make lite of the others I own. Mounted in a Very Modified VPI Scout TT with 9"3D arm feeding a Fosgate Signature Phono Pre I'm overjoyed with the results.for those that need to know I'm loading the ART9 at 500 ohms, Tracking at 1.8g. Last of all Only 1 Con... the VPI arm has a removable finger lift the screws on the ART9 Must be sent Slot head first from the bottom, the round nuts supplied by AT don't Fit at the bottom of the Cart,the opening is just a smigg TOO small Your choice is to use supplied washers and nuts on top Or forgo the washers and use finger lift with round nuts on top which will in time scratch the top of the headshell of said arm.Also to make things Easier(?) I had to mount the cart first THEN remove one nut at a time to get the finger lift on! needless to say I Said Words I Didn't even know I knew!!! AT, just a thought... Slightly Longer Screws would be Nice the ones you supplied Just about made it, I used a drop of lock tight at the top when finished with the setup due to the fact the screws did Not pass all the way thru the Nut. All things being equal A Real KEEPER ,A true Joyious Sound !
