I bought mine about a month ago, and now that I'm looking for another one for a friend, the supply seems to have dried up. Is this the end of the AT33 line, or will there be other models?

Still seem to be here - where I got mine from

http://www.audiocubes2.com/category/Cartridges/product/Audio-Technica_AT33PTG_Prestige_MC_Stereo_Cartridge.html

2 weeks for delivery that you can track.

Thanks - I did a search inside the Audiocubes site and couldn't find it!

I've now rushed the link to my friend.

At 182 you should buy two, or a few!
That's superb VFM.

I've seen it on ebay UK too recently.

A truly great cartridge and like the OC9, the only "failing" being that it reproduces the midrange lift (and corresponding perceived bass drop) applied to many mid-period LP's all too readily. When a record is cut with bass - it miraculously comes back...:)

Interesting strand! I had, and loved, the OC9 until I bought an AT-33E, and then there was no looking back. It's not quite as tight and punchy but so much smoother, subtle and more detailed. A truly lovely cartridge!

Welcome back Mr Price, nice to see you have a little spare time! :)

So what do you think of the AT33 family, any setup tips?

Cheers...

Mr price should be persuaded to do an appreciation of ALL the current AT33 family - there're are a good few of them it seems, but the PTG is the one that seems to get the UK attention (ML tip?)

Indeed! :)

That was the idea! :eyebrows:

I think the Denon DL160 is better than the OC9ML/II IMOP.

Hi Mike

any pointers as to how I'd actually get the cart for this price - that page just comes up in japanese and I can't make head nor tale of it.

I bought mine from here on ebay-I think the price is comparable and service good.

You can still get them from Audiocubes2 here:

Not as cheap as the Japanese site but reliable. I got mine from them, they also kindly marked it as a gift on the customs label so I didn't have to pay any duty.

Nope, not a clue Philip. :)

I'll see if I can unearth the site I got mine from when I get home... price was about the same and it arrived in a week.

Cheers...

I thought that was you 'unearthing' the site you used earlier... I was wondering how you understood it! ;)
