Audio-Technica AT100E Phono Cartridge
The Audio Technica AT100E's polished bonded tip is the premier secret to it's excellent economical high quality sound. The diamond is 'grain oriented' meaning it is mounted in such a way so as to provide the maximum life to the
diamond stylus and your records. We believe it's detail and clarity are extremely hard if not impossible to match at this price point in today's marketplace.
If you need a headshell, the AT100E is also available pre-mounted on your choice of a black or silver headshell, creating a 'plug n spin' kit.
Audio-Technica's AT100E VM stereo cartridge features a structure that
improves performance of the vibration system, allowing the stylus
perfect contact to the record surface. Additionally, it adopts a
lossless Paratoroidal generator coil system to their cartridge bodies
that results in peak generating efficiency. Stacking two cores makes
further improvements to high frequency characteristics by separating the
right-and-left channels from the center shield plate, resulting in
reduced electrical cross talk. The VM type AT100-series’ dual magnet
vibration and generation systems have been highly praised all over the
world and have become a long-selling series.
