1/2" STANDARD MOUNT
An entry level Audio-Technica CN5625AL. Will fit turntables requiring a 1/2" standard mount cartridge. Definitely keeps a lid on the budget. Features a Bonded Conical 0.7 mil Diamond stylus for tracking and extended record life. Utilizes Audio-Technicas' own Vector-Aligned dual magnet design for sonic generation.
Specs are as follows:
- Frequency Response: 20-20kHz
- Output strong 4.2 mV @ 1kHz
- Recommended Vertical Tracking Force 1.0-3.0 grams
- Recommended loading impedance 47K ohms (standard, requires only standard phono pre-amp built-into most gear).
If you are looking for a cartridge for minimal listening to your albums, your speakers or headphones are of questionable quality, your album quality is less than great, you're not recording and your budget will simply not bear the cost of the above mentioned cartridges then this would make an OK sounding cartridge for your standard 1/2" mount turntable. (If you have decent speakers / headphones / vinyl, or you're looking to do much recording "bite the bullet and spend a bit more money for one of the other cartridges on this page, with an "elliptical" diamond stylus as opposed to this "conical" model. The quality will be appreciably better and given the amount of time you will invest in your recordings and listening, the extra dollars spent now will be trivial over time.)
These are official Audio-Technica cartridges.
Not Chinese "bootlegs", "grey-market" or knock-offs like the cheaply priced copies seen all over the internet and in on-line auctions
that simply look like the "real thing".
