Audio Technica AT-OC9XEB dual MC Phono Cartridge is the most accessible entry point to get the outstanding channel seperation benefits of this cartidge. This version switches the boron cantilever on the higher models for an aliminium pipe design coupled with a nude square shank eliptical bonded stylus.
For enhanced sound quality, the body is made from rigid aluminium lowering resonance while a neodymium magnet paired with permedur yoke significantly augment magnetic energy. The nude eliptical stylus tracks the record groove with superior precision to deliver a rich full-range audio and greater transient response.
AT-OC9XEB uses pure copper ohno continuous casting coils for exceptional audio performance. These are set in a reverse V-shape the lead to lower pressure exerted on the eliptical bonded stylus to prevent distortion. The pre-threaded cartridge body can be fixed to a headshell or integral tonearm simply without the requirement for nuts as it uses only two screws.
Even though this is an entry level Moving Coil Cartridge from the Audio Technica range you really cannot go wrong with the AT-OC9XEB. The sound quality is superb with detailed High’s Mid’s & Low’s. Tracks beautifully and no ear fatigue whatsoever. This just proves to me you don’t have to spend a huge amount of money of a good Moving Coil Cartridge. I have been using a Dynovector XX2 for several years which cost 3x as much but the sound quality of the AT-OC9XEB surpasses it.
