Audio Technica ART-9 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 a 50th anniversary model. Also, it reproduces the highest-quality sound using the vibration system from the AT-OC9/III.

A neodymium magnet and permendur yoke have drastically increased the magnetic energy. The housing is made of machined aluminum materials and the cover is made of hard plastic materials. This disperses parasitic resonance and results in clear sound quality.

  • Flagship magnetic core MC type cartridge
  • High-quality magnetic circuit
  • Hybrid body that reduces unnecessary parasitic resonance
