I hear a lot of talk about the higher end Audio Technical cartridges on here


I checked the different U.S. Sites that carry the line but I don't see any of their upscale product. Can you tell me where to find it?

The AT-ART9 is their TOTL cartridge and can be bought from LP Gear along with the full line of all their cartridges...

You can find them listed at Jerry Raskin's NeedleDoctor:

Just check ebay and you will find all of them new (cheaper) from Japan and Hong Kong with buyer protection and 100% money back policy. 

P.S. I might be selling my limited edition Audio-Technica ART-2000 (made for Japanese market only). 
Concerning the ART9, Needledoctor doesn't carry it right now, but LpGear does. Amazon doesn't have it but eBay does, one from Thakker in Germany and the other from Japan-Select-Shop. LpGear's price is less than Thakker's and about $150 more than Japan-Select's.
