Audio Technica ART-1 Vintage Moving Coil Cartridge

$599

ART Stands for Audio Technica Reference Transducer.

The ART-1 featured a titanium housing and was a "cost no object" project to coincide with the company’s 25th anniversary back in 1989.

The price was 800£ in UK and $1200 in the USA.

The cartridge was - and remains - one of the most advanced constructions in audio. The titanium body-frame with special dumping silicone jacket brings the resonance down to nothing. Meaning the level of reproduction is superior with no distortion.

This phono cartridge is in great working and cosmetic condition. The cantilever is straight, the stylus is perfect, and it has very low ours of use as was evident upon our up-close microscope inspection.

It comes with boxes, a sealed bag of mounting hardware, and some papers as shown in our photos.
