Dual Moving-Coil Phono Cartridge

Audio Technica ATOC5


The AT-OC5 uses a Biradial nude-diamond stylus bonded to a hard aluminium cantilever with ceramic adhesive.

The coil is made from PCOCC6N, a new material which has an extreme purity of 98.99996% copper. The terminal pins are PCOCC material. This guarantees a more refined and purer transmission.

A Neodymium magnet greatly increases the magnetic energy. The magnet supply's approx 34% more magnetic energy than the old material. This strengthens the magnetic field in the coil gap.

The magnetic circuit fixture section and the body undercover are made from hardened plastic.

The mounting base is milled from a solid block of aluminium and finished with alumite and the housing is made from a hard plated plastic.
