Since its introduction more than 30 years ago, Audio-Technica's pioneering OC9 range of moving-coil cartridges has been appreciated by discerning vinyl listeners and professional critics for its musical transparency, sound expression and precise construction. The diamond with Shibata profile originally designed for the Quadraphonic replay offers a depth of sound, combined with a high frequency response that must be heard to be believed.
