Continuing the pursuit of sound excellence and with a heritage in phono cartridge manufacture spanning over 54 years, Audio-Technica have developed and engineered the AT-ART1000 to deliver the highest listening experience for playing analogue records.
The AT-ART1000, the most advanced cartridge to date, marries analogue audio expertise with cutting-edge materials and design - incorporating a direct power system, often viewed as a theoretical ideal in cartridge development.
To ensure audio quality is uncompromised by the cantilever’s length and material, the moving coil is positioned directly above the stylus tip without the need to transmit along the length of the cantilever. This close proximity between the coil movement and stylus tip allows the AT-ART1000 to vividly reproduce the finest sonic details, incredibly accurate medium and low frequencies, and deliver unsurpassed transient response.
Meticulously handcrafted in Japan with over 54 years in cartridge manufacture and design heritage.
20μm diameter PCOCC coil wire, wound eight turns to a diameter of 0.9mm creates a non-magnetic core coil. Despite its non-magnetic core type, a 0.2mV output voltage is delivered by placing a 3 ohm coil within the miniscule 0.6mm gap of a powerful magnetic circuit.
To protect against damage to the cantilever and wear to the stylus tip of this product, we offer a paid-for Cartridge Rebuild Programme service.
This programme provides the replacement of the whole assembly including stylus tip, cantilever, coils, and rubber dampers.
For complete details about this program, please contact your local Audio-Technica Service Center.
Please be aware that this program may be discontinued without prior notice, depending on the availability of spare parts or the amount of time that has passed since the release of the product.

Founded in 1962 by Hideo Matsushita, Audio-Technica positioned itself immediately as a leader in the manufacture and design of innovative audio products.
It’s expertise in innovation quickly spread to various new fields and led to the development of tone arms, microphones and headphones. Audio-Technica soon became a benchmark in those fields. Making history.
A self-made man and audiophile, Hidéo Matsushita was the former Director of the Tokyo Museum of Modern Art. It all started in his workshop, with the hand crafting of stereo cartridges. 50 years later, Audio-Technica has become a global leader in audio innovation.
Humility, passion, creativity and expertise in sound are the core values behind Audio-Technica’s legacy, greatly inspired by its founder - whose imprint on the company’s philosophy is still felt today.
Audio-Technica’s passion for listening evolved in the 70’s, when it started designing headphones, building upon a legacy in innovation, meticulous engineering and artistic design.
Today, Audio-Technica’s audio products have become globally synonymous with consistently high sonic performance paired with impeccable build construction and artistic design.
