With a high-quality sound comparable to more expensive models, the AT-F7 provides outstanding value and performance, which delights those who appreciate the sound quality of analogue records.

  • Features our celebrated dual coil design and elliptical stylus
  • Class leading quality of sound and reliability
  • Provides outstanding clarity and transparency of tone
  • Improved frequency response and precise stereo imaging
  • Finished in a stylish silver housing
The VC structure that holds the coils in place is made of a hard resin, which is combined with potassium titanate for increased strength and rigidity. The result is less weight and an unprecedented reduction of unnecessary vibration.
 
The AT-F7 uses 0.07 mm diameter stainless suspension wire, which serves an important role as a fulcrum point for audio signal transfer. This stainless wire is used for higher quality MC-type cartridges. This stabilises the fulcrum position and enables auditory lateralisation to provide excellent expression of the high-frequency range.
 
The neodymium magnet provides maximum energy (BHmax of 50[kJ/m3]), while the pure iron yoke provides excellent magnetic properties. Together, they further boast the magnetic field concentrated in the coil gap area.
 
PCOCC does not give rise to crystalline resistance in the transmission direction, enabling audiophiles to enjoy pure transmissions.
 
Audio-Technica's unique moving coil type cartridge has a basic structure where one cylindrical coil is used for the left channel and another is used for the right channel. This structure by which power is generated independently for the left and right channels physically provides outstanding separation characteristics. The leakage of signals from one channel into the other exerts a decisive influence on the stereo expanse as well as on the sound quality. This is because this leakage is tantamount to creating irregular cross modulation. The reason why the dual moving coil system delivers such a clear and finely delineated sound quality is no doubt due to the system's naturally excellent separation. The AT-F7 features a reverse V-shaped formation for the two left and right coils to reduce the vibration mass as seen from the stylus tip.
 
Using a precision-crafted sturdy aluminium alloy as the base, the body's structure is made of hard resin which minimises parasitic resonance. This achieves greater rigidity and improves signal-to-noise ratio.
