Made specifically for mono recordings on vinyl records, the cartridge only generates signal with horizontal movement. However to produce a minimal wear on the groove, the AT-MONO3/LP also has an adapted vertical compliance.
Carefully selected components and state of the art technology produce a high resolution cartridge.
Straight pipe aluminium cantilever and low mass stylus guarantees a high tracking ability.
The average usage time is 500 hours extending the life span of precious mono recordings.
High purity PCOCC allows a more transparent signal transmission both high efficiency and high fidelity.
To support the internal mechanism, the body is made of solid die-cast aluminium alloy, furthermore stiffness is achieved with the addition of rigid synthetic resin to hold the body.
