    This VM95 Series cartridge with 2.7 x 0.26 mil Shibata stylus fits half-inch mount turntables. The cartridge offers excellent channel separation and low distortion for outstanding tonal quality. The durable, low-resonance housing includes threaded inserts that enable the cartridge to be mounted to the headshell with just two screws no nuts required. And since all VM95 Series share the same body, the stylus can be replaced with any of the six interchangeable AT-VMN95 replacement styli.

    The next generation of the 95 series cartridge has begun!


    When compared to the AT95 w/ a Jico Shibata stylus, the first thing I notice is that the VM95Sh is faster on it's feat. It also has a tighter sound to it. I would attribute a lot of the improvement to the Nude Shibata stylus as well as the better fit of the stylus to the cartridge body when compared to the JICO after market stylus. Also, the cantilever on the AT stylus looks a tad thinner than the Jico version. Weather listening to Rock, Jazz, or classical, this cartridge is really an amazing performer at it's price point right out of the box! Just like the previous AT95, the NEW VM95 is going to dominate...and rightfully so! Over all, the addition of the threaded mounting block and the nude styli really make this NEW VM95 series cartridge a winner! Thanks AT for keeping phono technology fresh!
