About this deal

This information, which might be about you, your preferences, or your internet device (computer, tablet or mobile), is mostly used to make the site work as you expect it to.

Microlinear is a modern geometry better than elliptical, and Shibata an old (1970s, for CD-4 LPs) but venerated long-contact tip shape produced by multiple grinds. A leader in holographic highs, there was good air and reach on that side of the difficult-to-manage spectrum. Not as well, or as literally, as more exotic stylus cantilevers can depict, but well enough to aid orientation and to reinforce the illusion of music playing in a real space. The intention is to display ads that are relevant and engaging for the individual user and thereby more valuable for publishers and third party advertisers. i wanted to test out and listen to the 95c but unfortunately the stall did not have any demo stylus available for listening.At the recommended 2gm tracking force all five tracked well at 300Hz, clearing the high +15dB of CBS STR-112 test disc (+18dB is the upper limit). For the sake of this comparison, we will be pitting the Nude models against each other, the Audio Technica AT-VM95EN, AT-VM95ML and AT-VM95SH.

File 1 initially sounded more "exciting", but rapidly moved to fatiguing, too bright and edgy, harsh sounding.File 2 however has a mellow (warm) sound which I could easily live with especially if I had lots of recordings that could benefit from a softer presentation.

Audio Technica’s elliptical EN stylus is more rounded in the stem section than the other two options here. br>
Optional 78rpm stylus
If you swap between 78 and 33/45 records, then why not get a dedicated 78rpm stylus. Audio Technica has always opted for tightly controlled bass instead of loose and heavy bass designed to impress the naïve, a design decision that pays strong dividends in musical communication. File 2 sounds a little better put together, perhaps a touch more open in the highs, it had me feeling that File 1 sounded a bit artificial by comparison.

At home (Meridian Explorer DAC, NAD receiver and Vandersteen 2C's only reinforced that both versions are pretty bad, although file 2 is marginally better. Registered Office: 4th - 6th floor Wellington Buildings, 2-4 Wellington Street, Belfast, BT1 6HT (Northern Ireland - company number NI032565).
