Upgrade Kit for Audio-Technica AT-LP60 turntable
"... this wasn't a subtle difference or something I had to learn to listen for. The improvements in the sound quality really stood out." 1
The upgrade kit for the Audio-Technica AT-LP60 turntable improves the clarity, detail, and musicality of the factory supplied unit.
The kit is composed of a LP GEAR CFN3600LE stylus (Retail $55.00) featuring a highly polished special elliptical diamond with .0003 x .0007 inch tracing radii bonded to a special carbon fiber cantilever to refract the record grooves with exceptional precision thus resulting in better accuracy, natural tonality, spatial detail and crystal clean sound. You can keep the factory installed stylus that came with the turntable as backup. Our replacement belt by ViVid provides better torque and longevity. With these improvements you'll soon be enjoying your LPs once again.

I can hear more details as the music is alive after upgrade this stylus.Thank you!
I noticed a big improvment in sound depth.
I don't know if it improved performance over new OEM AT3600L needle, but I noticed a marked improvement in high frequency response and soundstage compared to the worn OEM needle I was using. This was the best price I found for this kit online and it shipped fast. Easy to install and recommended for anyone who has played a lot of used records and is noticing degraded sound on albums they are familiar with. I noticed that I wasn't enjoying some of my favorite records as much. They just sounded... kind of bad. Had my suspicion that the needle was finally worn out and confirmed it by looking at it with a pocket microscope. The taper was more blunt than it should be, compared to the LP replacement needle. Buy this belt and stylus kit now, and you'll have one on hand when you need it.
Truly makes a difference . Well worth the absolutely reasonable investment!!
Really good upgrade
The new needle points out details I hadn't heard in my records with the stock equipment. The sound is much fuller and clearer. The new belt definitely steadied out the speed. If you own an AT-LP60 and aren't in the market to get a whole new turntable, this is the way to go.
Better choices for cleaning 1 or 2 at a time though. would recommend.
It arrived promptly and works great!
