Audio-Technica ATN-152MLP ATN152MLP phonograph needle stylus
The Audio-Technica ATN-152MLP ATN152MLP needle stylus is discontinued and is no longer available. The stylus featured a MicroLine diamond for superior extraction of music from record grooves. It resulted in finer harmonic detail, dynamic contrast and clarity. It offered superlative performance with less wear and distortion than elliptical or conventional linear contact styli. The small curving rate of the stylus enabled it track and playback the inner part of the record groove that other styli can hardly maintain. Also, the curving rate of the stylus did not change until the stylus was almost worn unlike that of conventional styli which increased as they were used. Accordingly, the stylus has a much longer average playing life. The stylus was made in Japan by Audio-Technica.
