  • Overview

    Audio-Technica has been renowned for its phono cartridges for 50 years, and the moving-coil AT50ANV continues the companyís distinguished tradition. The limited-edition AT50ANV has a unique air-core design that employs a non-magnetic armature for the coil frame, yielding exquisite resolution of fine musical detail and a natural, transparent, spacious sound. Its new magnetic proprietary circuit design and neodymium magnets deliver almost twice the output of previous cartridges for extremely low noise and improved bass response.

    Additional details include a solid boron cantilever with a specially designed line contact stylus, a machined titanium base and aluminum and titanium body components, OFC 7N wiring and other enhancements. This model comes in a wooden presentation case with the 50th anniversary logo engraved into the wood.
