Not so fast
In my test, I tested the AT95SH, the AT125LC and the AT440Mla. The AT95SH had no innergrove distortion, as well the AT440MLA. The AT125LC had a little. As far as sound the AT440MLA beat out the AT125LC by just a little but they both beat out the AT95SH by a considerable margin all they way around. for 37 more bucks, the AT44MLA is so much more worth it. After listening to the two, there was no debating it.

AT95 and Shibata Stylus
This configuration was first brought out by [*********] in the mid 2000's. The AT95SA takes the AT95 cartridge body to it's highest level of performance by adding a Shibata stylus. Tracking at 2 grams, you get the famous AT95 sound with top-notch tracking and tracing abilities. Worth the extra $$$ but setup is DEAD CRITICAL with a shibata stylus.

Very nice
I bought this for a Marantz 6150 and have been really impressed. The sound is very full, clear, and musical. It tracks very well across the record with no detectable inner groove distortion or distortion of any kind for that matter. As someone else already mentioned, setup is critical. I was having balance issues until I got the azimuth set correctly, but now my analog setup puts CDs to shame. Great customer service, also.

lovely cartridge
on a good turntable and low capacity cables to the phono pre also the AT95 performs astonishingly well. The shibata version brings high resolution to the AT95 liveliness. I have an AT440MLa as well but in my setup (Thorens vintage TT) currently prefer the AT95SA for its musicality.

Shibata cartridge
I had an Acutex 315 STR Shibata cartridge for a Philips 877 turntable that was about 30yrs old. There is no replacement stylus for this cartridge. I bought this unit as a replacement. It works spectacularly! Much better than the new Audio Technica elliptical cartridge I tried. Only fault is the needle protector slides on and off and not integrated on the cartridge body. making it easy to lose.
