    I thought the tonal quality would suit you mate? It is quite a different sound to the standard AT95e, at least from my perspective.

    I am considering this at the moment AT-VM95ML

    Yes I agree James . The more expensive cartridges also look interesting .

    I have the original AT95e cart ,and I also purchased Grants ATN-95E Shibata Stylus and body from him a year or 2 ago .
    . I love them both but the Shibata is so much more clear at the top end and bass much fuller . Not sure how the EX differs from the Shibata ?

    I have a feeling the shibata is quite a bit better than the elliptical EX. I would really like to try their micro line profile ML stylus.

    AT MicroLine tips have always sounded top notch IME. Superb value for money. 440/150 were excellent. Haven't heard the new ones but no reason they'd be anything less.

    I am very impressed with the uplift across the board with the AT95EX stylus compared to the E in the AT95E. There is a lot more body to the music and a smoother fuller sound especially noticeable on vocals. Sometimes the AT95E could sound a bit spitty but the AT95EX all but eliminates this aspect. The AT95E has a thinner tonal quality which highlights the top end at the expense of the midrange.

    Although I am using this cartridge on a humble Garrard Sp25 Mk4 I may well evaluate it on my VPI rig just to get a complete picture of the abilities of the AT95EX. I am seriously pondering The AT-VM95ML as an everyday runner to save wearing out my 2M Black FGS too quickly so will report back when this happens.

    Should be an interesting exercise.

    I am a big fan of the AT sound.
    I have a couple of modified AT95s, an AT20SS, and AT150ea with the max stylus.
    I think they sound fantastic.
