  • Overview

    The AT-F3III stereo cartridge provides excellent all-around performance for those seeking an entry-level moving coil cartridge. Featuring Audio-Technica’s dual coil design and elliptical stylus (0.2 x 0.7 mil), the AT-F3 comes finished in a stylish silver and blue housing. The stylus tip is mounted on an aluminum pipe cantilever in order to achieve lighter weight. The elliptical stylus has two radii, the front radius being wider than the side radius. This allows the stylus to ride in the center of the groove, while the smaller side radius can more accurately track higher frequencies.
