Excerpt: I purchased this cartridge to replace an old one on a vintage turntable I recently acquired for my daughter who has begun to collect vinyl. The M97xe was easy to install and calibrate, and worked beautifully with the low mass tonearm on the turntable.
Excerpt: Wanted to dig out and play my sizable collection of old vinyl but my 50 year old Garrard SL95 was a basket case. I ordered the Audio-Technica AT-LP120USB Direct Drive Professional DJ Turntable which came with the 95E cartridge and stylus.
Pros: Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Professional Features
Excerpt: For the price point, this cartridge really deserves 5 stars, but potential buyers need to be aware that there are better performing cartridges out there, but at a much higher price point. I enjoy the warmth this cart brings to music.
Pros: Detailed But Not Bright, Excellent Price, Warm
Excerpt: Just purchased a used Technics SL-D2 turntable. I wanted to replace the cart and stylus with something new. After doing some research on message boards, many have recommended this product and glad I made this purchase.
