It offers outstanding clarity and transparency of tone, along with improved frequency response and precise stereo imaging.

    • Q:

      Which moving coil cartridges would you recommend for use with a Rega RP1 turntable ? I would rather not have to add shims/spacers to the tonearm to get reasonable VTA.

        A:

        The AT-F7 Cartridge is 17.3 mm in height. The AT33EV is 16 mm high and the OC9ML/II is 25.6 mm (1.1 inch) high. I have not been able to determine what the acceptable cartridge height is for the Rega turntable. See if you can determine what the height of the Rega cartridges are and compare.

    • Q:

      I have a wonderful Technics PL-10 turntable which requires a P-Mount cartridge. When I searched your site for P-Mount cartridges, this came up. I notice it is a Half-Inch. Will it still work with my turntable?

        A:

        Excellent question. The AT-F7 is 1/2" mount, so it will not work with a P-Mount turntable. The P-Mount cartridge I most frequently recommend is the AT311EP, which is also one of my favorite A-T cartridges.

        The AT-F7 does not feature a replaceable stylus. Therefore, no replacement stylus is available.
