Audio-Technica AT-VM95E Dual Moving Magnet Cartridge
The AT-VM95E cartridge is crafted with a 2.7 x 0.26 mil Shibata stylus to fit most half-inch mount turntables. It offers robust channel separation and low distortion for premium sound quality. Its sturdy construction and low-resonance housing feature threaded inserts for fast and simple installation with only two screws - no extra nuts required. Additionally, since all VM95 Series have the same body, you can upgrade the stylus with any of the six AT-VMN95 replacements.
The Audio-Technica AT-VM95E is a dual moving magnet (MM) cartridge designed for turntables. It is a versatile and affordable cartridge that offers excellent sound reproduction and tracking performance. The dual magnet design provides enhanced channel separation and improves the accuracy of stereo imaging.
The AT-VM95E features a diamond stylus that is bonded to a lightweight aluminium cantilever. This combination allows for precise tracking of the record grooves, resulting in clear and detailed audio playback. The elliptical stylus shape ensures optimal contact with the vinyl surface, minimising distortion and maximising fidelity.
The cartridge has a frequency response of 20 Hz to 22 kHz, which covers the full range of audible frequencies with good accuracy. It has a recommended tracking force range of 1.8 to 2.2 grams, providing flexibility to adjust for different vinyl records and stylus wear.
The AT-VM95E is compatible with a wide range of turntables that have a standard half-inch mount. It is easy to install and can be a suitable upgrade for entry-level turntables or a replacement cartridge for existing setups. It offers a balanced and engaging sound signature, making it suitable for various music genres.

I finally got around to installing this cartridge in my Marantz turntable last night and installing it was quite straight forward. Two grams tracking and setting overhang was easy enough and the new mounting system is a delight. The only quirk was getting the recommended load capacitance into the desired range, as the treble response is somewhat adversely affected by the correct capacitance loading. All ok now and it sounds very nice indeed.
