AT440MLa Cartridge



The AT440MLa cartridge is current production. The AT440ML/OCC  is out of production, Get PDF AT440MLa user manual.

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.  This is a complete genuine Audio-Technica AT440MLa cartridge premounted on our headshell.  We use the hi-end OCC headshell wires included with the AT440MLa from Audio-Technica. We give it a basic alignment that will work right out of the box.  Upon arrival all you will have to do is install the needle which is comes in the original AT box for shipping safety.  Then make sure your counterweight is set for proper tracking pressure and you are ready to play.  Optional fine tuning alignment is your choice.

Love this cartridge. Had the older AT440ML years ago, but this one is better. As you use it the trebles will get more moderate and you will have a well balanced sound. It also tracks the hardest passages well. Other cartridges would skip where this one plays. I forgot how good a cartridge could be.

Rating Amazing Detail
 
Some people talk about 'lifting the veil' to me changing to the 440 sounded more like 'lifting a horse blanket' My only criticism, it's very bright, is Vinyl warm tho because the set up may lack detail? Does adding detail in spades make it sound bright? If that's the case, adding in everything that the artist produced, bright really means accurate. The 440 sure is accurate because there is detail by the ton. Overly bright may be the result of poor mastering and not the 440s fault.

Quite simply the best thing I ever did for my vinyl. Forty year old records sound better than I've ever heard them previously, even on a low-end turntable. can't recommend this enough.

Rating at440mla on Pioneer PL-560 and PL-L1000
 
This is my 3rd purchased AT cartridge as started out with the 120EIII. This was purchased to put on my top of the line tangential tone arm pioneer. I have the AT150ML on my primary PL-560 and it kicks the moving coil competitors both sonically and by stats. The difference in price and soundstage led me back to the at440mla as cannot see a very big difference in frequency response. Astounding cartridge and must be set up correctly to appreciate.

Rating Worth the Upgrade!
 
I bought this as an upgrade to the AT120E and what a difference! The Nude square Micro-Linear stylus is superior to the Nude Elliptical as it closer to the way the LP was originally cut. It's much quieter and after using the HI-FI NEWS - TEST LP PRODUCER'S CUT to align it I hear everything I didn't before. You won't be disappointed and they have the best price for it.

Price was one of the big factors in buying this cartridge.Turntable needles.com has the lowest price of anyone.I was expecting this cartridge to sound better then my AT 132E but not THAT much better.I can hear things like voices clearer then ever before.I have it on the Denon 300 table. Would I recomend this cartridge? With out a doubt yes!!!

Bought this as an upgrade to My Thorens TD318 with standard arm. Super impresed at the results. Clarity and detail are markedly improved and I have really enjoyed the sound. As a Thorens upgrade I can only recommend it.

GREAT CARTRIDGE. I MOUNTED IT OVER A REGA P2 AND INNER GROOVE DISTORTION DISSAPEARED: EQUAL HI FI SOUND IN OUTER AND INNER GROOVES. FAR BETTER PERFORMANCE THAN REGA BIAS2 CARTRIDGE.

I replaced the cartridge on my Rega Planar III turntable with the AT440MLa and after careful set up & alignment etc I played a few of my favourite albums. The AT440MLa provides amazing audio clarity. This cartridge absolutely proves that vinyl is far superior than any cd.
