The AT-OC9ML/II made me question whether spending more money on a higher-priced moving-coil cartridge is really necessary." "Or, to put it another way, mounting the AT-OC9ML/II on your tonearm is like winning the lottery with your very first ticket. You can’t believe your luck." Soundstage Exceptional Value
Performance is civilized and cultured to a degree, and might suit those seeking a smooth performance with relaxed music" Hi-Fi Choice
The AT-OC9ML/II Dual Moving MicroCoil™ cartridge is a significant achievement in precision manufacturing, with tolerances held to mere thousandths of an inch. Stringent quality control assures that these tolerances, as well as performance criteria, are maintained by every AT-OC9ML/II cartridge. In addition, the AT-OC9ML/II features:
Dual-coil system for maximum channel separation.
High-flux samarium cobalt magnet for improved electrical generation.
PCOCC coil windings for low-loss “transparent” signal transmission.
Gold-plated solid boron cantilever.
