For more than 30 years ago, Audio-Technica’s pioneering moving coil OC9 cartridge series has been prized by demanding vinyl listeners and professional critics alike for its musical transparency, expression of sound and precise construction. Featuring a square shank for accurate stylus alignment and nude diamond for increased fine detail retrieval.

Audio quality is further enhanced by a rigid aluminum body that reduces resonance, a neodymium magnet and pure Iron yoke designed to increase the magnetic energy, and the low mass nude elliptical stylus and aluminium cantilever that provides accurate stylus alignment and increased fine detail retrieval.

The cartridge body has been pre-threaded, enabling it to be mounted to a headshell or integral tonearm with just two screws – no nuts required.
