Continuing the pursuit of sound excellence and with a heritage in phono cartridge manufacture spanning over 54 years, Audio-Technica have developed and engineered the AT-ART1000 to deliver the highest listening experience for playing analogue records.
The AT-ART1000, the most advanced cartridge to date, marries analogue audio expertise with cutting-edge materials and design – incorporating a direct power system, often viewed as a theoretical ideal in cartridge development.
Direct Power System
To ensure audio quality is uncompromised by the cantilever’s length and material, the moving coil is positioned directly above the stylus tip without the need to transmit along the length of the cantilever. This close proximity between the coil movement and stylus tip allows the AT-ART1000 to vividly reproduce the finest sonic details, incredibly accurate medium and low frequencies, and deliver unsurpassed transient response.
Made in Japan
Meticulously handcrafted in Japan with over 54 years in cartridge manufacture and design heritage.
Non-Magnetic Core Coil
20μm diameter PCOCC coil wire, wound eight turns to a diameter of 0.9mm creates a non-magnetic core coil. Despite its non-magnetic core type, a 0.2mV output voltage is delivered by placing a 3 ohm coil within the miniscule 0.6mm gap of a powerful magnetic circuit.
