The AT150Sa Dual Magnet VM Cartridge from Audio-Technica features the PCOCC Wire (Pure Copper by Ohno Continuous Casting) which delivers the performance of the advanced para-toroidal coil design. A pure copper material is used in the proprietary Para-toroidal Signal Generator, which together with the laminated core structure, minimizes loss in the high-frequency region, and operates efficiently. A special high-temperature extrusion die produces copper with virtually no transverse crystal barriers to impede signal transmission or color sound. Thus, the coils of the cartridge transmit distortion-free sound in which even the subtle details are reproduced with clarity and purity. The featuring Shibata Needle offers a high-range performance as a line-contact stylus, while producing rich mid and bass sound.
  • Shibata profile diamond
  • Rich Mid-high range Shibata-signature sound and strong mid-range volume
  • VM-type dual magnet system and high-performance para-toroidal generator allows high-quality playback
  • Adopted aluminum taper cantilever with light vibration tips achieved by taper processing
  • Detailed vibrations, detrimental to reproducing high notes, are limited by the robust metal die-cast body to improve shield effect and bass-range resolution
