LP Tunes CARBON FIDELITY CFT4PSE CARTRIDGE 
- 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. Co-developed and designed with LP Tunes by Audio-Technica's best engineers, new Carbon Fidelity T4PSE Spectra Elliptical (CFT4PSE) cartridge benefits from the latest quality parts and materials technology featuring a super carbon fiber cantilever that respond to the most complex high amplitude attacks and transients as well as the most heavily recorded passages. 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.

Mastered to illuminate in comparison to lofty cartridges beyond the economics of most listeners, the CFT4PSE 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

i’m genuinely impressed with this cartridge

this cartridge destroys the AT85EP (and it’s only $10 more). shipped ridiculously fast, I think it honestly showed up in 2 days. this is getting the best sound i’ve experienced out of my Technics SL-V5 which is super picky on cartridges, i’m stoked on this thing!

Works well

I have no sound comparison except for the old 30-40 year old cartridge it replaced. The unit fit properly and has good sound quality to me. The price seems very reasonable

New life for old vinyl

I purchased a CFT4PSE to replace the coveted Shure V15V-P in my 1982 Technics SL-QX200 turnatable. The sound this device extracts from fourty plus year old vinyl is astounding!
This is hands down the best P mount cartridge out there for the money.

Very pleased.

ORACLE ALEXANDRIA MK II

Good quality product and work perfectly fine.

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!!

Excellent

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

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.
