When it comes to turntable components, few names top Audio-Technica—and when it comes to Audio-Technica’s turntable cartridges, nothing tops the AT-ART1000. Handmade in Japan, this flagship features a first-of-its-kind design for mass-produced cartridges. In this design, the AT-ART1000’s power system holds the dual moving coil directly on top of the stylus tip, eliminating any negative audio impact from the cantilever. This results in excellent transient response and reproduction of the subtlest audio details—benefits that are further bolstered by two 20-micrometer PCOCC coils, each capable of generating an output voltage of 0.2 millivolts. With a titanium base, the AT-ART1000 features the same high-performance line-contact stylus and solid-boron cantilever found in Audio-Technica’s highly regarded AT-OC9/III cartridge.
Audio-Technica: Unmatched Turntable Engineering
In 1962, during vinyl’s first reign as the world’s favorite audio format, Audio-Technica released its AT-1 and AT-3 MM stereo phono cartridges. These products would mark the company’s start to over half a century of innovations across the audio industry. More and more releases followed, including an elliptical diamond stylus, a VM phono cartridge, and many well-received turntables—most notably the AT-LPW40WN. We carry Audio-Technica products for the same reason that countless professional musicians, engineers, and vinyl listeners use them. In the audio world, there is no higher benchmark of quality.
