- 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 T4P Spectra Elliptical (CFNT4PSE) stylus benefits from the latest quality parts and materials technology that includes a carbon fiber cantilever that seriously upgrade 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 CFT4PSE cartridge owners will continue to enjoy their elevated sound quality with this stylus. Owners of the AT3472 cartridge and its many models can also elevate sound quality by simply swapping their existing stylus with the CFNT4PSE stylus.
Mastered to illuminate against lofty cartridges the majority of listeners wouldn't encounter, 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

Sounds really good without breaking the bank! Fit my old Audio Technica TM-3 cartridge!
Purchased this after customer support confirmed this stylus would work with my old audio technica cartridge. Also confirmed that this stylus may sound better than the recommended audio technica stylus.
Both needles work well but this stylus does sound a bit better. Crisp, clean sound all around.
As budget styli go, this is a decent performer. The sound is smooth though not as full as my more expensive cartridge/stylus that I also use. Probably not the fault of the stylus entirely, it is an old budget cartridge.
Clear, direct sound without appreciable artifact- great sound in all ranges. Great purchase!
Replaced the stylus on a 1985 Technics linear tracking turntable. Very noticeable improvement in the sound quality. Very happy with the product. Had forgotten how good vinyl can sound.
Great fidelity, much improvement in overall sound.
