Comments about Audio-Technica VM740ML Dual Moving Magnet Cartridge:
Probably the best buy from the new AT series. Huge upgrade from the 500-er line, easy to setup and provides a very musical, rhythmic, distortion free sound. It has enough heft to keep the presentation balanced however, in absolute terms its deep bass weight may be a little bit short of energy. Just noticeable, nothing serious. A very well crafted cartridge, perfect balance between price and quality, generally very high value. More suited to jazz and acoustic music than classical. Those classical music fans had better choosing the 750SA that is more calm and even more smooth.

Q:Will the red styli work with AT440MLB? if not will there be any sort of replacement styli for the at440mlb?
Q:These new microline styli on this and the VM540ML track heavier than the previous design AT have used for years. Are these considered an improvement over the previous design?
A:Thank you for your inquiry. Regarding the tracking force, we think the previous tracking force (1.0 to 1.8g, optimal 1.4g) is too low to have better sound quality and tracking ability. (especially, 1.0g)
Q:Will this be a good match for the Stanton t.92 turntable's arm, and is there an option for one with it pre-installed on the headshell?
