  • Audio-Technica AT-ART1000


    This cart is already out in Japan, based on today's exchange rate the street price is around $6,100.00. Who else is thinking about acquiring one? Some of their marketing spiel mentions the Neumann DST and the DECCA positive scanning carts, although all three are fairly different. The ART-1000 is supposedly built entirely by hand and to the closet tolerances.



    Introduction


    Designed for direct power stereo MC cartridges AT-ART1000 Audio-Technica's new standard is to deliver highest listening experience with audiophile in Japan as part of "Excellence" program, was designed. This new flagship machine's cartridge Audio Technica history of the most sophisticated. Achieved by combining leading-edge material and design to analog audio technology cartridge AT-1 launched in 1962, 54 years accumulated knowledge and expertise.

    Direct Power System direct power scheme


    Because in our quality to pursue every day to deliver listening environment of the highest peaks in the analog, developed a method for direct power. Own analog technology cultivated over the years since its inception, challenges and innovative structures, mass production is impossible because it asks for precise production technology is considered to be ideal in theory, though, has been the successful commercialization.

    This product is adopted the generator coils on the top of the stylus tip, its own direct Pow method 1 MC cartridge. You can suppress the impact compared to traditional methods, due to the length of the cantilever and material quality generator coil placed at the base of the cantilever. Detail is difficult so far sound and depicted the former not high-fidelity reproduction.


    Stylus stylus and Cantilever tip and cantilever


    The stylus tip and cantilever employs special contact needles used for top-class product and solid boron conch lever. Picks up a lot of information from the grooves of a record, is a high-performance.
    Structure design details


    Adopt a air-core coils wound with 0.9 mm diameter 8-turn, coil diameter 20 µm PCOCC line is used. Can be placed in strong magnetic circuits of only 0.6 mm gap, while air-core type, and has won 0.2 mV output voltage in the coil impedance 3 Ω.
    Body body


    Machined titanium base unit supports the special magnetic circuit and oscillator, and adopts the materials. Titanium material with rigid and acoustically sound takes great effort and cost cutting, even in our cartridge used only the finest equipment. The distributed parasitic resonance by combining different rigid plastic material and the material aluminium, cover housing adversely affect sound quality.

        I saw Mikey has one in for review for about a month now though the cartridge still isn't listed on the AT US site. Mikey is also in Japan and one stop on his tour is reportedly the AT factory where he'll do a new story on the cartridge. I talked to the US AT rep about getting one for review but they didn't have any. Well at least none that Mikey didn't have.

        One has to be curious as to what AT could do if they put their mind to it. They certainly have the resources.

          Yeah but at least there's a hole for the screw to go thru unlike the 47 Labs Miyabi!

            Analogplanet reported from Munich's High End 2016 show on Audio-Technics's "evolutionary" new ART1000 phono cartridge. To prepare for an upcoming full review in Stereophile, analogplanet.com editor Michael Fremer flew to Japan to see how the unique cartridge is manufactured as well as to meet with A-T executives and the cartridge's designer, the recently retired Mitsuo Miyata.
