Audio-Technica is pleased to introduce the AT-ART20, the latest cartridge in our ART Series that will allow you to experience a new world of sound. As with previous magnetic core cartridges in our high-end lineup, we had two main goals in developing the AT-ART20: provide superlative analog sound reproduction and optimize the performance and benefits of a magnetic core cartridge.



 The AT-ART20 has been designated an Audio-Technica Excellence Product, a recognition that identifies products that meet our highest standards of high-fidelity performance.

Provides superlative analog sound reproduction

Reproduces sound with the full expressiveness of the original recording

Newly designed magnetic circuit improves the cartridge’s efficiency

Output voltage is improved by more than 15% without increasing the number of coil turns which can increase mass and impedance.

High-quality terminal pins with thick gold plating are approximately 30 times than that of conventional products to reduce contact resistance

Constructed of titanium, and aluminum with an elastomer undercover to reduce undesirable resonance

Special line contact stylus and solid boron cantilever with a 0.28 mm diameter provide premium high-frequency response with minimal inner-groove distortion for consistent reproduction

Utilizes the advanced cutting and polishing technologies cultivated in the eyeglass industry of Sabae City, Fukui Prefecture, with history stretching back more than 100 years

Threaded cartridge mounting holes allow easy installation to a headshell or integrated tonearm

Please Note: AT-ART20’s stylus assembly is not field-replaceable, but Audio-Technica offers a fee-based Moving Coil Exchange Program to properly service your moving coil cartridge.
