The latest and greatest OC9 series is now available. The Audio Technica AT-OC9XSH features a Nude Shibata stylus and boron cantilever, as well as some excellent 5 star reviews. 

Since its introduction more than 30 years ago, Audio-Technica’s pioneering moving coil OC9 cartridge series has been prized by demanding vinyl listeners and professional critics alike for its musical transparency, expression of sound and precise construction. Shibata profile diamond originally design for Quadraphonic replay offers a depth of sound, combined with high frequency response that has to be heard to be believed.

  • Features nude Shibata stylus and boron cantilever with rich low frequency reproduction and high transient response
  • A neodymium magnet and permendur yoke provides dramatically increased magnetic energy
  • Threaded inserts in the cartridge body enable the cartridge to be mounted on to the headshell or integral tonearm with just two screws – no nuts required 
  • Aluminium body minimizes unwanted vibration for reduced resonance and a superior audio reproduction
  • Pure Copper by Ohno Continuous Casting process (PCOCC) is used for the coils to achieve pure signal transfer
