ATN120E Type Needle for Audio Technica's AT120E etc

Important:
  • The  legacy OEM Genuine ATN120E by audio-technica is obsolete. 
  • It was specified in legacy AT literature as having a bonded [man-made diamond] 0.4 x 0.7 tip but AT later upgraded the offering to a sharper 0.3 x 0.7 nude/natural diamond tip under the same part#.
  • See image above showing early and late literature depicting the design improvement from bonded to nude tip.
  • in any case, the flip guard had "AT120E" printed on it to highlight its most common use specifically in the AT120E cartridge, but may have been found in similar pickups.
  • This offering is for a bonded [man-made diamond] 0.3 x 0.7 tip aftermarket ATN120E which also serves as a copy of the VMN520EB. 
  • Each ATN120E is individually finished, tuned, inspected & packed in USA of imported components.

OEM Replacement notes:

  • The late revision nude ATN120E is replaced by the current production  VMN530EN (same orange color) at $139.
  • The early version bonded ATN120E is now available as the current production VMN520EB (navy blue color) at $79.
  • ATN120E was re-released under this new numbering system so everything makes more sense in the current line-up.

atn120e copy
not bad. you get what you pay for. all the top end is there. the bottom end lacks detail. muddy. not as good as the original. construction is different. appears to be more mass with the cantilever and stylus itself. better to just buy another 120e cartrige. better deal.

Same as the original
I accidentally bent the stylus on my AT120e/t and did not want to spend $120+ on a new cart, this replacement stylus was identical in every way to the original. I got the more expensive oem not the aftermarket generic. Still was a good deal IMHO.

ATN120E Stylus.
Bought this as replacement stylus for discontinued Audio Technica cartridge. First of all it was $15 to $20 cheaper at Turntable Needles than anywhere else for the same diamond stylus, honestly. Second of all this was the best $75 upgrade I could have made for my system. This sound is what I've been looking for and what people talk about when it comes to vinyl listening. You know it when you hear it. Everyone with a stylus that's been used quite a bit shouldn't hesitate to replace it.

OK for a copy
OK but really not as good as the original. I guess it's a good cheap alternative though so, for the money, not a bad replacement. Still I think like someone else said, it's better to just go ahead and get another 120e if you can afford it. The highs are there but the lows are really lacking for me. I ended up just upgrading to a AT440MLB in the end.

audio-technica 4-208-de
I am very pleased and quite frankly a little surprised at the quality of this stylus. Great detail throughout the whole range --a bargain at twice the price.

Excellent sound
I bought this as a backup for the AT100e. It fits well in into the AT100e, although it is a little bit more tight to press in. The sound is superb. I would say you pay for half the price of the AT120, and get nearly 80% of the performance. And thanks to Turntable needles, I can use this stylus on the AT100e. Excellent.
