Audio Technica AT120


The AT120 features a high efficiency, para-toroidal coil assembly and dual magnet stylus assembly.

It borrows many of the superlative features of our top of the line models. The body is of high-density, resonance free construction.

The main difference from the AT125LC is in the stylus assembly, an elliptical stylus on a straight pipe cantilever instead of the tapered pipe.

While inheriting the outstanding clarity and minimised crosstalk of its more sophisticated mentors, a special characteristic of the AT120E is its dynamic reproduction.
