Audio-Technica Consumer AT-ART7 Overview

  • 1Description

Modeled after the commemorative AT50ANV, the Audio-Technica Consumer AT-ART7 is a non-magnetic core moving coil cartridge designed for Hi-Fi playback systems, providing extremely natural and clear sound quality with the ability to express three-dimensional sound fields inherent to non-magnetic core types.

The liquid-crystal polymer used for the coil winding not only provides lightweight strength but suppresses unwanted vibration from power generation. The special line contract and solid boron cantilever provides accurate transfer of music signals read by the stylus tip to the power generating moving coils. The AT-ART7 includes a non-magnetic screwdriver, mounting hardware, a plastic protector and a set of PCOCC lead wires.

Non-Magnetic Core MC Type Cartridge
This product keeps the basic design of non-magnetic core MC type cartridge AT50ANV and changes the coil winding frame from a pure titanium armature to a newly developed liquid-crystal polymer armature via injection molding. This product also succeeds in reducing the weight of the vibration system compared to AT50ANV and provides the extremely natural and clear sound quality with the ability to express three-dimensional sound fields inherent to non-magnetic core types. In addition, this product enables an output voltage of 0.12mV, a relatively high output level for a non-magnetic core system.
Liquid-Crystal Polymer Armature
Liquid-crystal polymer used for the coil winding frame has not only an extreme mechanical strength but also a unique property that increases the mechanical strength as the product becomes thinner. Therefore, it is a most suitable material for the vibration system of cartridges, demonstrating high intensity and vibration absorption properties and enabling high-quality sound by suppressing unwanted vibration from power generation.
Magnetic Circuit Designed to Maximizes Magnetic Energy
The magnetic circuit of this product uses a large-sized neodymium magnet with approximately twice the volume of conventional Audio-Technica ferrite core MC types. The permendur magnetic circuit parts located around the magnet have also been newly designed to maximize the strength of the intensive magnetic field in the coil gap. This magnetic circuit increases the output voltage, and enhances playback capability in the medium-to-low-frequency range that is said to be a weak point of conventional non-magnetic core MC types. This provides a very accurate frequency response.
Line Contact Stylus and Solid Boron Cantilever
The stylus tip is a special line contact type with a 40µm x 7µm curvature radius (used in the AT50ANV) and a solid boron cantilever with a 0.26 mm diameter. This allows accurate transfer of music signals read by the stylus tip to the power generating moving coils.
Machined Aluminum Base
The base that supports the magnetic circuit and vibration system is made of machined aluminum material. This enables it to serve as a solid base to support stable playback capability.
Hybrid Body Reduces Unnecessary Parasitic Resonance
The housing is made of machined aluminum materials and the cover is made of hard plastic materials. This disperses parasitic resonance and results in clear sound quality.
