The AT-MONO3/LP is a high-output (1.2 mV) moving coil
cartridge designed specifically for use with mono vinyl records.* Due to the
horizontal configuration of its PCOCC (Pure Copper by Ohno Continuous Casting)
voice coils, the AT-MONO3/LP cartridge only generates electrical signal with
horizontal movement, yet it also has appropriate compliance in the vertical
direction, making it safe for use with stereo records. The voice coils are
wired in series, resulting in one mono signal that is transmitted to the
cartridge’s white-blue terminals and red-green terminals in order to feed both
inputs of a stereo phono preamp. 

The cartridge’s low-mass 0.6 mil conical stylus is mounted
on an aluminum cantilever for excellent tracking performance. Because the
AT-MONO3/LP does not easily pick up unnecessary strain components from
distorted or scratched records, it produces mono audio of a much higher quality
than that generated by a stereo cartridge. The cartridge features a strong,
rigid body of die-cast aluminum alloy and synthetic resin to eliminate
unnecessary vibrations. 

* This cartridge with 0.6 mil conical stylus is not compatible
with SP (standard play) shellac records. It is designed to play mono
microgroove 33-1/3 vinyl records.
