AUDIO-TECHNICA AT-95E AT 95E AT95E PHONO CARTRIDGE

Imported and packaged by LP Tunes, the Audio-Technica AT95E 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 AT95E is delightfully affordable and available. Since October, 2004 and up to the present, the Audio-Technica AT95E 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 AT95E 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 AT95E integrates the range of the sonic bandwidth very well: no part of the spectrum sticks out at the listener. It doesnt sound bright and it doesnt 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 AT95E 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 AT95E phono cartridge has been consistently rated a "Best Buy" in the UK and we agree wholeheartedly.

Stylus for Signet TK-4Ep TK4Ep cartridge
Patrick Smith (Washington, US)
Reinvigorated my turntable

Just what I needed to improve the sound.

Fast delivery and good communication

The order arrived in a timely manner, and LP provided good communication throughout the process. It feels good to have a needle that I know is unblemished and I can play my vinyl worry free.

Hard to match what I needed

Bottom Line up front: quick response but some cost for the return and refund.
In spite of having the model number from the Technics manual, the item shipped did not fit. LP Tunes was quick to respond with a return authorization, BUT as warned, I had to pay postage to return the misfit as well as a 15% restocking fee.
I bought the replacement from an obvious and popular source which paid shipping and offered free returns if needed.

Replacement for Sony ND-5G ND5G stylus
Customer (Philadelphia, US)
Sony ND-5G ND5G stylus worked out great

I am restoring a 1983 Sony PS-LX22 turntable and was looking for a reliable and knowledgeable source for a replacement stylus. This Sony model has a head shell that's really hard to find so getting a good cartridge to fit on the one i had was very important. I looked no further than LP Tunes as they really know what they're doing when it comes to matching the right stylus / cartridge to an older head shell. Always happy with them.
