This thing DELIVERS!

Excellent value in a phono cartridge. Tracks and sounds great at it's price or much more. Highly recommended.

Hank Alspach (Marlton, US)
Great cartridge at this price —regret-free purchase for me

Very detailed. Not harsh out of the box—so no stress here over a "break in period". Pleasant daily driver and a big improvement over its predecessor, the AT-95E. Nice transplant for vintage tables.

Stan F. (Centreville, US)
Audio Technica AT-VM95e Cartridge

This cartridge punches well above its weight. I have three of these mounted on vintage turntables, one with the VMn95c conical stylus, and two with the VMn95e bonded elliptical stylus. At $49 the AT-VM95e is a bargain. The conical version is very good; the elliptical is a notch or two better. Stan F. - Centreville, VA.

Top notch supplier

I was very pleased with the service I received, reasonable cost and shipping. The belt fitted perfectly, as did the stylus. However for some reason, the later caused frequent skipping on some records, that previously had played without issue using the manufacturer supplied item. But perhaps this is just with the turntable I have, so hopefully others may experience better luck using the stylus. Thanks.

Great needle

What a difference in this and the old. Sounds great!!


Very fast response and perfect.

Sony stylus

Incredibly fast shipping, for in the cartridge perfect and at a great price. Bought a stylus for another turntable because of the great turnaround.

Replacement for Shure Ne97HE stylus
Allan Smith (Denver, US)
great main stylus

Ordered this so I can store the original shure ne97he stylus that came with m97he-ah era IV cartridge. I only have at most 25 hours on original stylus. The replacement fit right in cartridge. All is good plus it was well packed.

Ortofon 2M 78 Stylus
Daniel Duncan (Magalia, US)
Ortofon 78rpm stylus for 2M Series.

Glad they make this stylus and LP Tunes carries it. This is a good sounding cartridge but the 78 stylus can be sometimes hard to find.

NAD 5120 Turntable Replacement Belt

All good

Shure V-15 Stylus

VN-35E was exchanged (originally, incorrect ordering by me) for VNSE3HE which correctly fit/worked in my RS cartridge.

I was a bit surprised that Shure had different stem sizes in their V-15 variants.

LP Tunes customer service met my expectations in the transaction. I will consider them for future purchases.
