Dual Moving-Coil Phono Cartridge

Audio Technica ATOC3


The Audio Technica AT-OC3 is an excellent moving coil cartridge with high cost performance.

The cartridge uses a Biradial nude-diamond stylus and a hard aluminium cantilever. Therefore, it is both very light and small.

The armatures are constructed to form an inverted V, and a new type of ceramic adhesive is used to join them to the cantilever.

The use of a vertical stabilizer further increases tracking stability.

Output voltage: 0.35mV

Channel separation: 27dB

Vertical tracking force: 1.25 to 1.75g (standard 1.5g)
