LP GEAR CARBON FIDELITY CFN95SE STYLUS
- Music that makes you want to listen.™
Listen to the new voice of music. Carbon fiber composites offer 10 times the strength of steel at half the weight. Codeveloped and designed with LP GEAR by Audio-Technica's best engineers, the new Carbon Fidelity 95 Spectra Elliptical (CFN95SE) stylus benefits from the latest quality parts and materials technology featuring a carbon fiber cantilever that seriously upgrades performance. The updated design, tight specifications, Twin-Flux™ magnets, high-quality moving system fulcrum and radial damping ring allied with a Spectra elliptical diamond tip produce music that makes you want to listen.
Existing CF95SE cartridge owners will continue to enjoy their elevated sound quality with this stylus. Owners of AT95 cartridges and its many models can also elevate sound quality by simply swapping their existing stylus with the CFN95SE stylus.
Mastered to illuminate against lofty cartridges beyond the economics of most listeners, the CF95SE touches and endears the more you listen. You won't want to go back to your underperforming or pricey cartridge. You'll hear, feel and sense the music exquisitely rendered — harmonically full-bodied, refractive and refreshingly crystal clean with luminous detail spatially radiating with realness. You'll experience remarkable note clarity, projection and nuanced tonal complexity previously unheard and unappreciated.1

Footnote 1: A high resolution system is needed to experience the nuanced tonal complexity of the CF95SE.
Footnote 2: Carbon fiber composites offer 10 times the strength of steel at half the weight. Each producer's carbon fiber differs from those of its competitors, and the processing details are considered to be intellectual property. The special carbon fiber used in the Carbon Fidelity cartridges and styli is patiently and expertly considered for its signature characteristics to bring out the subtleties and finesse of music extracted from the grooves of records and LPs.
