AUDIO-TECHNICA AT-95B AT 95B AT95B CARTRIDGE
- The world-class AT-95E with Black stylus

The legacy of excellence continues. The Audio-Technica AT-95B phono cartridge, the black version of the AT-95E, was named one of the industry's best products by the Editors of Stereophile.1 Previously, the Audio-Technica AT-95E phono cartridge received the same high recommendation: Stereophile Recommended Component October 2004, 2005 and April 2006 (Vol. 27 No.10, Vol. 28 No.10 and Vol. 29 No.4). Packaged by LP Tunes, the Audio-Technica AT-95B is the only inexpensive cartridge included in the Stereophile Recommended List. All the other cartridges range from $200 - $17,000! Stereotimes.com March 2007 rated the Audio-Technica AT-95E phono cartridge Highly Recommended.

The Audio-Technica AT-95E phono cartridge has a very distinguished and colorful lineage. On its own, it has been a multiple recipient of Best Buy ratings in the UK. Its lineage is intertwined with the classic and musically acclaimed Linn Basik, K5 and K9 phono cartridges. Unlike these cartridges however, the AT-95E is delightfully affordable and available. Since October, 2004 and up to the present, the Audio-Technica AT-95E phono cartridge is included in the Stereophile Recommended Components List. It is the only inexpensive phono cartridge to be included in this highly selective recommended list! The review summarized the performance of the Audio-Technica AT-95E phono cartridge with the following words: "Makes music for 50 bucks!"

Paul Szabady in Stereotimes March 2007 had this to say about the Audio-Technica AT95E phono cartridge:

"The AT-95E integrates the range of the sonic bandwidth very well: no part of the spectrum sticks out at the listener. It doesn’t sound bright and it doesn’t sound dull at the top frequencies. Midrange is clear and detailed with no spittiness on vocals, though really cheap and inadequate analog match-ups will cause an slight upper mid-range burr."

The half-inch standard mount and dual-magnet Audio-Technica AT-95E cartridge sounds clear, dynamic and richly balanced. It allows music lovers to use limited means to upgrade their turntables and thus attain a higher level of discernment and listening pleasure without the financial burden typically associated with high end cartridges. Yes it is vibrant, dynamic and rich in detail as reviewers and users say, and some users may no longer wish to upgrade further. The Audio-Technica AT-95E phono cartridge has been consistently rated a "Best Buy" in the UK and we agree wholeheartedly.

Great product, great company to deal with.

LP Tunes is My Place To Get Needles Now

It was what I asked for and was shipped quick! No complaints. I know this might seem like some sorta generic bot review but it's not. My name's Ondrew and I love experimental music. Playing some Pram with the new needle and cartridge. Love it

LP Tunes CARBON FIDELITY CF95SE cartridge
Daniel Madore (Bangor, US)
Excellent Customer Service!

LP Tunes are very responsive and were incredibly helpful to me in finding a replacement stylus for my turntable. Even though there was some initial confusion on the correct needle for my order, they were quite quick to respond when I reached out to them about the error, and made it very easy to complete the exchange! Great experience, would definitely recommend!

LP Gear CARBON FIDELITY CFN3600LE stylus
John Wild (Stockport, GB)
Transformative

Prompt delivery considering the distance, thanks. Easy to fit to my existing Rega Carbon cartridge, then just wow, what a difference! Enjoying rediscovering my vinyl collection and hearing things I didn’t know existed! Fabulous, relatively inexpensive upgrade, transformed the cartridge into one which simply digs out the music-very satisfied.

Works great

Found a junky integrated TT-432 had fingers crossed that all it needed was a new needle. CD and Tape Deck were non-operable. So this was my break even point. Thank goodness the needle was a straight swap and everything worked. Thanks.

Replacement for Excel ES-28 ES28 stylus
Jonathan McCracken (Kitchener, CA)
Excellent direct replacement

Direct replacement stylus for original es-28 cartridge. Perfect fit and great sound. Old one finally wore out. Shipping took a bit to get to Canada, but was worth the wait.
