The AT33PTG/II dual moving coil cartridge features a Microlinear stylus that, with its small curvature radius, delivers low-distortion, high-range performance, even when playing the inner circumference of a record. The Microlinear stylus, which has an average life span of around 1,000 hours, is mounted on a nude tapered boron cantilever with a double damper for reduced weight and better audio quality. 

The cartridge’s two coils provide excellent channel separation and are affixed within a strong, lightweight mold made of hard resin to greatly reduce unwanted vibration. The cartridge uses a neodymium magnet and a permendur yoke for dramatically enhanced magnetic energy. The PCOCC (Pure Copper by Ohno Continuous Casting) coils ensure pure audio transmission.

  • Moving coil cartridge with Microlinear stylus delivers exquisite, full-range audio reproduction
  • Advanced tapered boron cantilever and reduced coil weight improve the audio quality, particularly in the higher frequencies
  • Neodymium magnet and permendur yoke dramatically enhance the magnetic energy
  • PCOCC (Pure Copper by Ohno Continuous Casting) coil enables pure signal transfer
  • High-separation, wide-response dual moving coil
  • Strong, rigid housing limits unnecessary vibration
  • Precision-cast hard aluminum alloy body enhances rigidity and the signal-to-noise ratio
