Audio Technica AT-95e   23.65

The Audio-Technica AT95e AT-95e phono cartridge is a really great budget moving magnet  cartridge.  It is manufactured extremely well in Japan and is very reliable. Its performance is top class.   Our low price is no more than the USA Dollar price, plus 5% import duty, 17.5% VAT.  No tricks here and supplied directly by Audio Technica UK straight to Sound Hi Fi.  You get a one year Audio Technica UK warranty.

Enjoy great  accurate tracking, separation, and performance when listening to your favourite vinyl with this magnet phono cartridge. The 1/2-inch mount cartridge features an elliptical shaped diamond stylus that tracks portions of the groove that spherical  styli simply cannot reach, ensuring that high-frequency passages sound clear and crisp.

The elliptical shape also wears remarkably evenly, extending the lives of both the record and the stylus itself (up to 1,000 hours.  The stylus and cartridge is covered by a one-year warranty.

This is the lowest cost  cartridge that you should fit to an old record deck before ruining your LP's.  It is very highly rated by many audiophile forums as the lowest price budget cartridge there is.  Do a search and see for yourself?

Audio-Technica AT95E AT-95E phono cartridge recent reviews and awards: Stereophile Recommended Component October 2004, 2005 & April 2006 (Vol. 27 No. 10, Vol. 28 No. 10 & Vol. 29 No. 4).

Stereo Times 2007 had this to say: Due to its strong rhythmic performance and excellent timing, the AT95E excels with Pop, Rock, and Jazz recordings.  The AT95E’s portrayal of acoustic instrumental timbre sounds more natural than that of the CD.

I played the two cartridges on six different turntables: my antique Connoisseur BD2A, the cheap and cheerful new Rega P2, two Linn Sondek LP12s and my two Origin Live reference tables. I also used seven different phono sections. Linn’s old rule-of-thumb that the cartridge is the least important part of an LP playback system still holds largely true, augmented now by the importance of turntable isolation devices and replacement platter mats. As I played the cartridge in ever-more highly resolving gear it was clear that any sins committed by this superb value cartridge were those of omission rather than active commission.

Those on a very tight budget or those building an inexpensive analogue LP front end need look no further than the Audio Technica AT 95E.
