Manufacturer: Audio TechnicaCartridge Type: Moving Magnet
Mono LP model with a conical bonded stylus in the body dedicated to monaural sound. Specialised internal wiring allows for reduced surface noise and stable sound reproduction.
DUAL MOVING MAGNET STEREO CARTRIDGE
Using an ultra-lightweight stylus tip ground to a high level of precision, we have achieved a combination of low distortion rate with fuller frequency reproduction during playback. This stylus tip extracts every possible piece of information from the grooves on a record.
Instead of using a single, large magnet, the two magnets are arranged in the shape of a "V". The two magnets are positioned precisely to match the positions of the left and right channels in the stereo groove walls. Consequently, the VM design ensures outstanding channel separation, extended frequency response and superb tracking.
Para-toroidal coils improve generating efficiency and offers superb linearity, since leakage of magnetic flux in this continuous and unitised magnetic circuit is low. Permeability of the cores is also optimised through the use of laminated cores.
A permalloy centre shield plate enables the effective separation of left and right channels, suppressing electrical crosstalk to below 40dB. This is similar to the actual crosstalk value found in the grooves of the record itself.
Great mono cartridge at a very affordable price. Bass is well controlled, highs are clear & crisp but never harsh, and the mid's are lovely, vocals sound great on this cartridge. If you have a few mono lp's in your collection and want to hear them reproduced properly without breaking the bank, start here!
