Addictive Analog Sound and Hear-It-to-Believe-It Value: Audio-Technica AT-OC9XML Dual Moving-Coil Cartridge Features Nude Microlinear Stylus, Boron Cantilever, and Independent PCOOC Coils

Occupying the middle tier of Audio-Technica's OC9X Series, the AT-OC9XML dual moving-coil cartridge pairs addictive analog sound with hear-it-to-believe-it value. Promising countless hours of fun, the Japanese-designed instrument offers quiet operation, excellent tracking, and high-grade construction. Once it hits the grooves of your LPs, you'll no longer wonder about the critical characteristics – detail, dynamics, warmth, tonality, depth, imaging, solidity – that are always mentioned hand-in-hand with audiophile playback. AT-OC9XML brings you closer to the music you love and does so in emotionally engaging fashion.

The benefits of AT-OC9XML begin with the nude microlinear stylus and boron cantilever, which provide extremely low distortion and high transient response. Also working in concert, a neodymium magnet and premium permendur yoke with high-saturation flux density and outstanding magnetic properties further enhance the concentrated magnetic field of the coil gap. And with Pure Copper by Ohno Continuous Casting (PCOCC) coils aligned in a reverse V-shaped formation for both the left and right channels, AT-OC9XML supplies breathtaking channel separation and purity. While complex in design, AT-OC9XML keeps setup simple. Its pre-threaded cartridge body means the cartridge can be mounted onto the headshell or tonearm with just two screws. A non-magnetic screwdriver, two washers, installation screws, plastic protector, and brush come with the package.

Hear the dramatic differences a vetted high-end cartridge such as AT-OC9XML can do for your system today!
