    Default Art 9

    I have been lucky enough to borrow an Audio Technica ART 6 cartridge for a week or two and I have to report that in my system it is awesome. Anyone else using one or have views on this cartridge?

    No, but only ever read good reports. I think this was the cartridge I would have purchased had I not sent my Lyra for a re-tip.

    I dont have a bad word to say about mine at its pricepoint. It comfortably beats many more expensive carts and does everything I personally like. Detail, air; and dynamics by the truckload. Once dialled in its stunning. I think its actually really underpriced for the performance it gives. Im yet to hear anything sub £1500 that makes me think im missing out. Cant see me changing until it dies or i come into a significant sum of money.

    Sold my Kiseki for one of these without any regret, it really is a superb cartridge, once set up burnt in.

    Pleased you're enjoying it Steve, i can't see me getting my arm back for at least a month, apart from getting fixed it's getting the upgrade to the series 6 so i'll give you a call when i know when it will be ready and i'll bring the TT over.

    Hang on a minute - the thread title says ‘Art 9’ and then Steve immediately starts writing about the ‘ART 6’ - so which is it?

    I've had one for a while, along with Koetsu Red sig (Goldring rebuilt) and Accuphase AC-5, I don't think lacks anything in that company. Any other 'boutique' manufacturer it'd be twice the price +.

    The one cart that can leave it sounding a little .....flat... is Decca SG, but that has the caveat of it needs to be the right record. I haven't found a formulae for what suits the Decca, being clean is essential but it's also picky about pressing.

    Had my Art9 for just over a year and really happy. Bought it for greater dynamics over my Zyx Airy3 which it does and haven’t felt the need to change back or try something else. Great for all types of music. Detail and nuances are all there and the ‘air’ has already been mentioned. Good choice.
