Audio-Technica 120E Cartridge

Dual Moving Magnet Vector-Aligned Dual Magnet design and Audio Technica's exclusive 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 assuring better signal transfer. The use of PCOCC wire (Pure copper by Ohno Continuous casting), a special copper with virtually no transverse crystal barriers to impede signal transmission, perfects the performance of the advanced paratoroidal coil design. Thus, the coil of the cartridge transmits distortion-free sound in which even the most subtle sonic details are reproduced with clarity and purity.

· Stylus Type: .3 x .7 Elliptical nude round-shank stylus

The half-inch standard mount AT-120E/T cartridge has gained a loyal following among audiophiles. It is extraordinarily crafted and provides musical enjoyment far beyond its price range. After about 100 hours of break-in, the AT-120E/T metamorphoses into a skilled artisan. You'll enjoy its cohesion, wide soundstage, tight bass and crystalline highs.
