Here is a 1980's vintage Audio Technica AT30-E low output moving coil cartridge. It was highly regarded in it's day as an excellent, unique LOMC cartridge that was unique for its removable/replaceable stylus assembly. The sound of this cartridge is terrific and will compete with much more expensive cartridges... it is dynamic yet very smooth, with excellent bass and body in the midrange. Very very good resolution and its errors are all of omission. It is NOT a typical hot sounding Audio Technica MM sizzle and fizzle cartridge. Amazing to hear this one play, in this day of megabuck ZYX and Soundsmiths.
This cartridge is sold with a NEW OLD STOCK AT30E stylus. I have two of these from 30+ years ago and now have been able to acquire a brand new stylus for the body. I am selling the extra one of these cartridges and keeping the other for my own use.
I will list the specs for the cartridge below. It will need a step up transformer or MC phono preamp with 60 db gain, as its output is .28 mv at 5 cm/sec.
New stylus' are available from LP Gear but these are AT31E stylus' with a slightly different elliptical dimension. The AT31E stylus is fully compatible but the stylus on this one I am selling is the original model AT30E stylus. Once again, it is a brand new stylus. If you are a vinyl lover you will find this is money very very well spent for the performance you will get. See my other posting for my SUT's (Parks Cinemag and Luxman AD8000).
