    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.

    An interesting review of the complete range of Audio Technica VM cartridges.

    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.

    Default AT3600L

    Would highly recommend the lowly AT3600L as an absolute bargain.

    0.6 Conical and it has no right to sound as good as it does.

    To put in to perspective, I recently picked 2 of these carts up for 20 off the bay.

    There are lots of threads about on how good they sound.

    Can be upgraded easily too. I also use mine with a cracking elliptical stylus from LP Gear.

    I recommend everyone try one of these for the silly money they are. Even if it's only for beat up records.
