The AT-95E has a very distinguished and colorful lineage. On its own, it has been a multiple recipient of Best Buy ratings in the UK. Its lineage is intertwined with the classic and musically acclaimed Linn Basik, K5 and K9 phono cartridges. Unlike these cartridges however, the AT-95E is delightfully affordable and available. Recently in the Stereophile October 2004 issue, the AT-95E was honored with a Class D rating and included in the Recommended Components List (Stereophile Vol. 27 No. 10). The review summarized the performance of the AT-95E with the following words: "Makes music for 50 bucks!"
The half-inch standard mount and dual-magnet AT-95E cartridge sounds clear, dynamic and richly balanced. It allows music lovers to use limited means to upgrade their turntables and thus attain a higher level of discernment and listening pleasure without the financial burden typically associated with high end cartridges. Yes it is vibrant, dynamic and rich in detail as reviewers and users say, and some users may no longer wish to upgrade further. The AT-95E has been consistently rated a "Best Buy" in the UK and we agree wholeheartedly. Manufactured to Audio-Technica's world class quality standards, each cartridge is completely hand assembled and tolerances are held to just thousands of an inch.Audio-Technica LP120 USB User ManualAudio-Technica LP120 USB BrochureCNET Review of the AT-LP120 Turntable
