  • Overview

    The AT150Sa pairs a VM type dual magnet cartridge with a Shibata line-contact stylus for remarkable full-range audio reproduction with excellent left/right channel separation. The cartridge’s lossless paratoroidal generator coil system features PCOCC (Pure Copper by Ohno Continuous Casting) coils to ensure pure audio transmission with peak generating efficiency. A tapered aluminum cantilever provides a rigid yet lightweight platform for the stylus, while the cartridge’s die-cast metal body reduces unwanted vibration for clean, resplendent sound.
