Indeed, the AT-ART20 description refers to a special design of the magnetic core with a front yoke thickened by 0.6 mm – this made it possible to increase the signal swing by more than 15%, up to 0.55 mV. The needle with a special line contact is mounted on a holder made of a bur ideal for such applications. All this made it possible to expand the range of reproducible frequencies up to 50,000 Hz.

The Audio-Technica AT-ART20 cartridge received a titanium case with an aluminum base and a layer of damping elastomer. Holes for mounting screws are internally threaded – cartridge installation is extremely simple.

As for the price of the Audio-Technica AT-ART20 MC-cartridge for playing vinyl discs, according to the manufacturer’s website, in the USA it was $4,000.
