At440MLa Audio-Technica Cartridge


The AT440MLa cartridge is current production. T
he 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.


Note that the cartridge arrives mounted to the headshell 'well-enough' aligned but not custom precision-aligned to your specific turntable.  This means that in most cases it will work out of the box but the more discerning ear will likely want to do some additional alignment.

1/2" mount cartridge with MicroLine® shaped diamond tip for the most accurate tracking, separation and performance.

Rating Audio audiophile cartridge will not let you down
 
Once the proper setup and alignment of cartridge and stylus are completed along with anti skate and VTF you will hear mostly only beautiful LP soundstage and all those intriquisies you never heard before from your albums.

Rating At440Mla plug in Cartridge
 
I have a Kenwood KD-750 Turntable and this Plug & Play Cartridge worked perfectly. After minor adjustment the sound quality is fantastic. Channel separation and wow & flutter are outstanding. Perfect Match!!

Rating AT440MLA Curved S-Tonearm Plug & Spin Kit Review
 
The best part about the "Plug & Spin Kit", is the AT 440 MLA cartridge itself. Other than that, the headshell may not exactly be aligned to the liking of every S shaped tonearm. Unless you own a turntable with an S shaped tonearm, you might find this to be even more of a piece of work to get aligned properly, and you would be better off using your own headshell if possible.

Rating Audio Technica AT440MLa Plug & Spin Kit
 
The AT440MLa really eliminates inner-groove distortion (this is not just audiophile hype). The plug-and-spin kit from Turntableneedles.com is convenient: if you need to buy a headshell as well as the cartridge, you can get both, at a modest savings, and the shell comes with the cartridge installed, so you are spared the difficulty of pushing those tiny pins into the correct sockets.
