This VM95 Series cartridge with 2.7 x 0.26 mil Shibata stylus fits half-inch mount turntables. The cartridge offers excellent channel separation and low distortion for outstanding tonal quality. The durable, low-resonance housing includes threaded inserts that enable the cartridge to be mounted to the headshell with just two screws – no nuts required. And since all VM95 Series share the same body, the stylus can be replaced with any of the six interchangeable AT-VMN95 replacement styli.

Audio Technica launched the new VM95 range in late 2018 updating the fantastic AT95 cartridge and improving it with captive mounting nuts and a range of stylus options from Conical to Shibata (all of which are interchangeable). This VM95SH features the Shibata as previously used on the AT150MLX and 150SA cartridges. Fantastic performance and value!
