If you like your AT33 there's not much to think about, you'll love it. Its more balanced and has higher resolution than the AT33 but still keeps all the musical qualities that AT cartridges are known for.

I own an ART 9. Most life like sounding cartridge that I own. A few that I have compared it to.
1) Accuphase AC-2
2) Benz Micro LP'S"
3) EMT Einstein TU-3
4) Kiseki Gold Spot
6) Roksan Shiraz
7) Shinon Red Boron Improved
8) Sony XL-88
I could go on but you should have understood by now that this ART 9 is something quite special!
I love my limited edition Audio-Technica ART-2000 cartridge, 1000 units made for Japanese market in year 2000 as AT reference cartridge. In my system it sounds amazing with ZYX CPP-1 headamp to MM input on my WLM Phonata reference phono stage. For the price i paid it's a top cartridge. I'm not sure which serial model was a successor of AT ART-2000 for mass market but there must be one.
