Audio Technica AT33SA Moving Coil Cartridge with Shibata Stylus

The AT33SA marks Audio-Technica's introduction of the Shibata stylus to its MC cartridge lineup, delivering exceptional performance across the frequency spectrum.

Shibata Stylus

As the first Audio-Technica MC cartridge to feature a Shibata stylus, the AT33SA offers superior high-range performance typical of a line-contact stylus, along with strong and rich mid and bass sound reproduction. Mounted on a boron cantilever with a double damper, the Shibata stylus greatly enhances sound quality.

Advanced Design

The AT33SA utilises a tapered boron cantilever, reducing weight and improving high-range performance and wide-range reproduction. By tapering the cantilever and adjusting the number of coil rotations, the cartridge achieves enhanced performance across the frequency spectrum.

Magnetic Properties

Featuring a neodymium magnet with maximum energy product BHmax of 50 [kJ/m3] and a permendur yoke with high saturation flux density, the AT33SA creates a concentrated magnetic field in the coil gap. This setup dramatically enhances magnetic energy and ensures outstanding magnetic properties for superior performance.

Neodymium Magnet

The neodymium magnet delivers maximum energy (BHmax of 50[kJ/m3]), while the pure iron yoke contributes excellent magnetic properties, further enhancing the overall performance of the cartridge.

  • Advanced Shibata Stylus: Equipped with an advanced Shibata stylus, capable of accurately reproducing a wide range of frequencies, ensuring detailed and precise sound reproduction.
  • Dual Moving Coil Design: Incorporates a dual moving coil configuration, enhancing stereo imaging and delivering excellent channel separation for a more immersive listening experience.
  • Solid Boron Cantilever: Features a solid boron cantilever, providing both precision and durability to effectively track the record grooves without distortion.
  • Exclusive Neodymium Magnet and Permendur Yoke: Utilises an exclusive combination of neodymium magnet and permendur yoke, ensuring efficient conversion of magnetic energy for optimal performance.
  • High-Strength ABS Enclosure: The high-strength ABS enclosure reduces unwanted resonances, preserving the purity of the audio signal and delivering clearer sound reproduction.
  • Special Line Contact Stylus: Incorporates a special line contact stylus, offering direct and precise contact with the record grooves, resulting in accurate playback of the recorded audio.
  • Threaded Body Design: Features a threaded body design for easy installation, eliminating the need for additional nuts and ensuring a secure fit.
  • Professional Aesthetics: Boasts high-end, professional aesthetics with Audio-Technica's signature blue and silver colour scheme, adding a touch of style to any turntable setup.
