    Music listeners, and audiophiles with low budgets, BUY THIS!


    This is a lot of cartridge, for not a lot of money. This will sound superb, lively, and make music on any good average medium mass tonearm commonly found on today's turntables. Better than the old AT-95e, can be upgraded to amazing levels. A budget cartridge which sounds nice even on much better equipment than it's commonly seen on. An upgrade for many turntables. Better than budget has a right to sound. Clean bass, accurate midrange, nice sweet high treble without fatigue, plenty of detail. Musical. What budget audiophiles need, and even nice against many 3x as expensive options. Audio-Technica, you outdid yourself again. Made the AT-95e obsolete, and improved upon it even at the cheapest level, and gave Ortofon2M, and Nagaokas reason to be afraid. Keep up this relentless effort to improve phono playback for the budget customer. I repair turntables and tone arms, you'll be recommended to my clientele and all who ask about good for not a lot of money. A winner, folks!!!!

  • Q & A

    Is this compatible with the AT-LP-120 USB turntable?


    Yes, the AT-VM95C cartridge may be used with the AT-LP120-USB turntable.


    I have an Technics SL-210 from the 70's and looking to replace the stylis/cartridge. Would this work for my turntable?


    It appears the turntable you listed allows for standard half inch mount cartridges. The AT-VM95 Series of cartridges are all half inch mount.
