Audio-Technica AT33EV MC Phono Cartridge
Ratings & Reviews
After being very satisfied with the AT150MLX, I decided to give the AT33 a try while my Kontrapunkt b is out being retipped. While not quite up to the Kb in tone (a personal preference), it is an excellent cartridge and provides a very nice, detailed sonic picture. The only drawback is its large physical size and weight. It is best used with the heavier arms like a Rega or most of the Japanese TAs. Highly recommended at the price-point.

This MC cartridge is a bargain,have played for only about 10hours now,but it impresses me with the music it brings from every recording,good or bad ones.Of course do good recordings sound better but this MC cartridge does not make bad ones sound unplayable.And that is important if you want to play evrything,for example Rolling Stones,The Doors This cartridge makes you want to play and play and play,there are too few hours in a day ;-) I use step-up 13X and 40,4Kohm so the cartridge "see" 240ohm. It sounds great and I`m not sure if this is too heavy or too light load,will experiment with this in the future. This is a musicmachine,highly recommended :-D
