  • Excerpt: This cartridge is technically pretty good. Tracks great and produces crisp highs and firm lows. You can really hear the nuances of the song. For a little more money though I would recommend the Denon DL110. It has a warmer tone and is a more well rounded cartridge.
  • Pros: Crisp Highs, Firm Lows, Good Sound Stage
  • Cons: Sound Can Be Too Sharp

  • Excerpt: I played about a half dozen pieces of vinyl thinking this cartridge is OK feeling it lacked what I was expecting to hear. My next play is what changed my mind Norah Jones Come Away With Me 200 gram pressing. The bottom end and clarity was impressive.

  • Excerpt: I bought an Audio Technica turntable, and true to form, the stock cartridge that came with it (AT95SE) just couldn't help but produce distortion near the record end. But all of my other (more expensive) cartridges do the same, including those on linear-track turntables I also have.
  • Pros: Consistent, Excellent Sound, Professional Features

  • Excerpt: I got this cartridge because of its famous inner-groove-tracking ability. It did not disappoint - it was able to excellently track the inner grooves of Rise Against "The Unraveling" - something no other cartridge i encountered could do.
  • Pros: Clear Highs, Consistent, Excellent Attack, Excellent Sound, Good Channel Separation, Inner Groove Tracking, Replacable Stylus, Versatile
  • Cons: Soundstage Depth Is So-so

  • Excerpt: Excellent upgrade from the at95e. Really brings out the detail in the music.
