Default Audio Technica AT50ANV Successors: AT-ART7 vs. ART9 - which audible Sonic Difference

The last both postings about
AT50ANV - Audio Technica's 50th Anniversary MC Cartridge
don't provide any advices. Therefore I open a new thread.
In this case there I have found this threads:
http://www.audioasylum.com/audio/vin...7/1071066.html
http://www.audioasylum.com/cgi/t.mpl?f=vinyl&m=1065339
http://www.pinkfishmedia.net/forum/s...d.php?t=160546
According this threads and others the ART-7 is more suited for current control inputs (transformers or Pre-Preamps like Hiraga or Mark Levinson JC-1/JC-1DC due the low inductance (air coil) and thus low voltage output)
The ART-9 is more suited for currently usual phono stages with voltage gain select (MM/MC switch) and voltage control inputs (due the high inductance of the internal coil and thus high voltage output), i. e. high input impedance of the preamp input. The suited impedance adjust was created through real resistors between input and GND.

But concerning the sound differences there are also no hints.
Who had do perform a listening test between this both cartridges?

Here the data sheets:

Mr. Rodrigo Thomaz from Audio Technica send me follow reply to this question:

Hello,
if you prefer to listen to multiple orchestrate classical music, we
recommend the Non-magnetic Core Moving Coil cartridge AT-ART7.
It can reproduce more sensitive sound of each instrument.
However
if you prefer more dynamic music like jazz/pop music, we recommend you
use the Magnetic Core Moving Coil cartridge AT-ART9. It will deliver
much more presence with rich low mid frequencies.
Hope this can help. Kind Regards, Rodrigo Thomaz


I think, this is a first helpful advice to make a decision for the purchase.
