  • Overview

    The AT33PTG/II dual moving coil cartridge features a Microlinear stylus that, with its small curvature radius, delivers low-distortion, high-range performance, even when playing the inner circumference of a record. The Microlinear stylus, which has an average life span of around 1,000 hours, is mounted on a nude tapered boron cantilever with a double damper for reduced weight and better audio quality.

    The cartridge’s two coils provide excellent channel separation and are affixed within a strong, lightweight mold made of hard resin to greatly reduce unwanted vibration. The cartridge uses a neodymium magnet and a permendur yoke for dramatically enhanced magnetic energy. The PCOCC (Pure Copper by Ohno Continuous Casting) coils ensure pure audio transmission.

  • Q & A

    I am considering purchasing an AT LP7 turntable and want to get a MC cartridge upgrade. I primarily listen to classical music. Between the AT33EV and the AT33PTG/2 cartridges, is there one that would be optimal for such use? I realize there are almost endless variables to consider.

    Thomas

    As there are a lot of options, you may use either of those choices you listed. I would personally go for the AT33PTG/2 as the stylus tip is a finer MicroLinear stylus tip compared to the Elliptical tip on the AT33EV.

    I live in Denver Colorado, what are my options when the stylus needs to be replaced?
