Audio-Technica AT-ART9XA Dual-Coil Phono Cartridge

The AT-ART9XA's dual moving coils and Shibata stylus unleash complex details hidden within your vinyl collection to create the ultimate listening experience.

An update to the AT-ART7, the AT-ART9XA non-magnetic core MC cartridge features a Shibata stylus on a boron cantilever and an Audio-Technica reference transducer (ART), a component used only in our premium cartridges. Compared with the magnetic core used in most MC cartridges, non-magnetic core cartridges feature no magnetic distortion, allowing for natural timbre and a precise sound field. Although conventional non-magnetic cores struggle with output voltage, the AT-ART9XA features a newly designed coil armature with an improved output voltage of 0.2 mV (1 kHz, 5 cm/sec). Threaded cartridge mounting holes make installation to a headshell or integrated tonearm incredibly easy.


- High-separation, wide-response dual moving coil:
The dual moving coils of the system are aligned in an inverted V shape, which provides high separation and wide response for clear sound localization and minimal distortion.
- Shibata stylus and 0.28 mm diameter solid boron cantilever:
The Shibata stylus ensures accurate high and mid-low range reproduction, and the boron cantilever provides excellent response characteristics.
- Neodymium magnet and permendur yoke for significantly increased magnetic energy:
The specially designed magnetic circuit optimizes energy in the magnetic gap where the generator coils are located.
- Newly designed coil armature for improved output voltage:
A complete redesign of the armature offers a 20% increase in the cross-sectional area of the generator coil to read more provide an output voltage of 0.2 mV.
- PCOCC coils for high-fidelity transmission:
Using PCOCC (Pure Copper Ohno Continuous Cast) wire for the coils achieves pure signal transfer.
- Machined aluminum base for stable playback:
The machined aluminum base supports both the magnetic circuit and the vibration system, ensuring excellent playback stability.
- Hybrid body reduces undesirable parasitic resonance:
The machined aluminum housing combined with high-rigidity plastic helps reduce undesirable parasitic resonance for improved sound quality.
- Threaded cartridge mounting holes for easy installation on headshells or integrated tonearms:
The cartridge body includes threaded screw holes that allow installation on headshells or integrated tonearms with only two screws (no nuts necessary).
