    "I found a nice 1980's Sony turntable on ebay. This improved sound 100%. Just use on near mint albums and your gold....VM95SH is not the clearest sounding stylus, it has some good strengths, low noise and rumble being one of them, but doesn't sound as good as the two lower cost styluses. "

    "Also as a bonus, you can even buy more expensive needles that fit the same body or even go a step down from this to the conical stylus needle. ...Spend a little more on a replacement stylus...This is a mediocre stylus at best , I returned this item because it was not what I needed when I bought my AT-LP120X from the Central Park Best Buy it was not only missing this stylus cartridge but my product was missing the entire Headset but I have heard this thing in action @ a friends and I was not that impressed so after my nightmare purchase I treated myself to a Ortofon Blue Stylus Cartridge Combo and now my AT-LP120X Sounds Stellar"

  4. Audio-Technica - Audio Technica ATOC9XEB Dual Moving Coil Cartridge - Blue - Front_Zoom

    Product Description

    The AT-OC9XEB Dual Moving Coil cartridge with bonded elliptical stylus is designed to provide outstanding channel separation. The Pure Copper by Ohno Continuous Casting (PCOCC) coils ensure pure audio transmission and are aligned in a reverse V-shaped formation to exert less pressure on the stylus, thereby minimizing distortion. Audio quality is further enhanced by a rigid aluminum body that reduces resonance, a neodymium magnet and pure iron yoke that increase the magnetic energy, and the bonded elliptical stylus on an aluminum cantilever that accurately tracks the record groove. The cartridge body has been pre-threaded, enabling it to be mounted to a headshell or integral tonearm with just two screws – no nuts required. Dual moving coil design, featuring independent coils for both left and right channels, provides outstanding channel separation. The coils are aligned in a reverse V-shaped formation, which exerts less pressure on the stylus, thereby minimizing distortion. The cartridge body is pre-threaded, enabling it to be mounted onto the headshell or integral tonearm with just two screws – no nuts required. Features a bonded elliptical stylus and aluminum cantilever. A neodymium magnet and pure iron yoke provide increased magnetic energy. Aluminum body minimizes unwanted vibration for reduced resonance and superior audio reproduction. Pure copper by Ohno Continuous Casting process (PCOCC) is used for the coils to achieve pure signal transfer.
