Audio Solutions Question of the Week: What Are the New Features of the AT-VM95 Series Cartridges?

Question: What are the new features of the AT-VM95 Series cartridges?

Answer: The popular AT95E cartridge is a staple on turntables around the globe – favored by vinyl enthusiasts because it offers high-quality sound at a great price. Audio-Technica has deep historical roots in the phono cartridge industry, and we’ve always sought to offer innovative products to our customers. So we recently upgraded the beloved AT95E, releasing the new AT-VM95 family of cartridges. The new cartridge body style allows you to use the same cartridge with a variety of stylus tip options ranging from conical to Shibata. The lineup even includes a 3.0 mil conical to play 78 RPM records. The AT-VM95E has a greater frequency response than the AT95E, extending from 20 to 22,000 Hz, as well as a greater output of 4.0 mV (at 1 kHz, 5cm/sec.)
