Overview

 

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.
