AT-VM95E – Elliptical stereo cartridge
The AT-VM95E, the new Audio-Technica entry model Elliptical cartridge will replace the legendary AT95E and take advantage of the developments of the AT95EX introduced in 2015. The AT-VM95E features an improved and distinctive design resulting in a more rigid low resonance housing, and two threaded inserts in the cartridge body enabling it to be mounted to the headshell or on an integral tonearm with just two screws, no nuts.

  • Aluminium cantilever
  • 4.0mV output voltage
  • Compatible body with all VM95 Series stylus assemblies
  • Replacement for AT95E and AT95EX
  • 20 to 22,000Hz frequency response
  • Channel Separation 20 dB (1 kHz)
  • Vertical Tracking Angle 23°
  • Stylus Construction Bonded Round Shank
  • Recommended Load Impedance 47,000 Ω


AT-VM95EN – Elliptical Nude stereo cartridge

The AT-VM95EN features a Nude Elliptical Diamond. The construction of the stylus being a one piece diamond with a round shank inserted in the cantilever creates a lighter and more rigid transmission system than a diamond tip bonded on a round titanium shank such as in the AT-VM95E. Also the use of nude diamond implies a substantial difference in pricing, yet the quality of the reproduction will be immediately noticed, specifically in the fidelity of high frequencies and in the quality of the transient responses.

  • Aluminium cantilever
  • 3.5mV output voltage
  • Compatible body with all VM95 Series stylus assemblies
  • 20 to 23,000Hz frequency response
  • Channel Separation 22 dB (1 kHz)

  • Aluminium cantilever
  • 3.5mV output voltage
  • Compatible body with all VM95 Series stylus assemblies
  • 20 to 25,000Hz frequency response

VM95 Series – Styli compatibility
Every cartridge diamond stylus becomes worn after a period of play.

Around 500 hours for a conical stylus, 300 hours for an Elliptical stylus, 1000 hours for a Microlinear stylus and 800 hours for a Shibata stylus.

Audio Technica VM95 Series dual moving magnet cartridges can be used almost forever by replacing the interchangeable stylus. It is no longer necessary to purchase a complete cartridge when your diamond is worn out, you can simply buy the matching replacement stylus, but also enjoy the experience of upgrading your cartridge with a different stylus.

The six models of VM95 Series cartridges all use the same electromagnetic engine-body, therefore each of the six replacement styli are perfectly compatible.

No use of nuts
VM95 Series cartridges features two M2.6 threaded inserts allowing the installation of the cartridge onto tonearm or removable headshell without the use of nuts.Each cartridge is provided with one pair of 8mm M2.6 screws, one pair of 11mm M2.6 screws and two plastic washers.
