This is a superb sounding true audiophile cartridge at a great value. If you want the absolute most out of your records, we confidently recommend the AT440MLa without reservation. The specs do not do this cartridge justice. It should play and decode the vast majority of quadraphonic records (with compatible HiFi system). It will lift the maximum amount of audio information out of the grooves to send into your computer for further processing to your taste. Several audiophile forums we found testified that this cartridge, still made in Japan, not China, will not disappoint!
Comes with mounting hardware, brush, screwdriver & hi-end OCC headshell wires for connecting cartridge to your headshell.from Audio Technica's website:MSRP* US$219.00 [Once we sell out of current stock we are facing a 30-50% price increase.]*Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price.| Actual selling price may vary; please check with an authorized Audio-Technica dealer.1/2" mount cartridge with MicroLine® shaped diamond tip for the most accurate tracking, separation and performance.
