AUDIO-TECHNICA AT-F3/III AT F3/III ATF3/III PHONO CARTRIDGE

The Audio-Technica AT-F3/III stereo moving coil cartridge lets the music flow naturally from the grooves. This is achieved through a combination of special technical features each designed to capture more from the record grooves: the dual moving coil design, elliptical stylus, aluminum pipe cantilever and the vertical stabilizer mechanism.

Features
- Neodymium magnet for dramatically increased magnetic energy
- PCOCC used for coils and terminal pins for pure transmissions
- Dual moving coils for high separation and wide response
- Durable construction dedicated to achieving increased rigidity for improved signal-to-noise ratio

Reviews & Feedback
Just wanted to let you know that I received the AT-F3/III Wednesday and got it up and running. I mounted it on my REGA P3-24 using the Denneson Soundtractor, tracking at 2 grams and using a 2mm spacer under the arm. All I can say is WOW! A-T really improved on the original AT-F3/II. Sound is so much smoother and the shift to medium compliance is a HUGE +. It does very well on the RB-301 arm and is an unbelievable bargain at it's price...which I'm sure won't last long...

I have to tell you that I had an ORTO Salsa prior to the AT and I have to say that the AT is really a better cartridge...even though the Orto is twice as expensive. The Orto is just to HOT and in-you-face. Also, it tended to wobble a tad similar to the Grado dance. The AT just let's the music flow and makes you forget all the technical aspects and headaches you just suffered in tonearm/cart setup... This one's a WINNER!

Thanks for making this available,
JA
