The AT-ART9 is Audio-Technica’s flagship moving-coil cartridge. Combining the craftsmanship, artistry and leading-edge engineering derived from the AT50ANV, AT-ART7 and AT-OC9/III cartridges, the AT-ART9 employs a vibration system and magnetic circuit that are the best-ever within the series thus resulting in exquisitely transparent and naturally complete sound quality. It is so startlingly honest that your ears convey to your mind and it comes to a singularly quick conclusion – this is real music at its best. Just like the body knows real sugar from processed substitute.


  • Its new magnetic circuit design adopts permendur yoke and neodymium magnet for dramatically increased magnetic energy, extremely low noise and improved bass response.
  • Special line contact stylus with tip curvature radii of 40μm × 7μm adopted in AT50ANV and solid boron cantilever with a 0.26 mm diameter allow accurate transfer of music signals from the stylus tip to the generating coil.
  • Dual moving coil for high separation and wide response.
  • Hybrid body inherited from the AT-ART7 cartridge design to suppress unwanted parasitic and deleterious resonances. The housing is made of machined aluminum materials to dissipate parasitic resonances for unimpeded sound quality and clarity.
  • PCOCC coil wiring for direct and pure signal transmission.
  • High-quality brass screws for headshell attachment offers the best match for optimal sound quality.
