Audio-Technica's AT100E VM stereo cartridge features a structure that improves performance of the vibration system, allowing the stylus perfect contact to the record surface. Additionally, it adopts a lossless Paratoroidal generator coil system to their cartridge bodies that results in peak generating efficiency. Stacking two cores makes further improvements to high frequency characteristics by separating the right-and-left channels from the center shield plate, resulting in reduced electrical cross talk.
The VM type AT100-series’ dual magnet vibration and generation systems have been highly praised all over the world and have become a long-selling series.
The AT-100E cartridge features:
- Elliptical stylus VM cartridge with para-toroidal coil
- Para-toroidal coils, long recognised for their high efficiency, are utilised here for the first time in cartridge manufacturing, characterised by uniform response and distortion-free performance.
- Gold-plated connectors assure maximum energy transfer.
- Superior imaging and channel separation are achieved through the A-T Vector Aligned Dual Magnet design.
