Audio-Technica ATN100E Stylus
The Audio Technica ATN100E's diamond surface is polished to a glass-like finish. Thus, providing exceptionally precise audio clarity by closely following the groove wall fluctuations. Standard quality diamonds have more of an 'orange peel' finish when viewed under the microscope. That roughness your fingers feel on an orange peel when compared to the smoothness of an apple skin will cause more friction if dragged down a V-shaped track to simulate a record groove. So, in this case, when comparing apples to oranges, the apple-like tip smoothness is what you want.
• Elliptical needles have more efficient contact with the surface of the record than a conical tip.
