The AT440MLB dual magnet cartridge features a MicroLine
shaped, diamond tip for improved high frequency response with less wear and
distortion than conventional linear or elliptical styli.
The MicroLine stylus almost exactly duplicates the shape of
the cutting stylus used to produce the original master disc. This enables it to
track portions of the groove other styli cannot reach, resulting in extremely
accurate tracing of high frequency passages and ruler-flat frequency response
within the audible range..
The AT440MLB also features Audio-Technica’s unique
Paratoroidal Signal Generator. This unique signal generating system is composed
of a unified, laminated coil core wound with a single piece of wire. Internal
mechanical and electrical connections are eliminated, minimizing magnetic
losses and ensuring better signal transfer..
A gold plated beryllium cantilever improves stability whilst
the dual magnet system offers excellent channel separation.
