This is a SUPERb sounding true audiophile needle. If you want the absolute most out of your records, we confidently recommend the ATN-440MLa stylus for your AT440MLa cartridge without reservation. The specs do not do this cartridge justice. It will play and decode all manner of quadraphonic records. It will lift the maximum amount of audio information out of the grooves to send into your computer for further processing to your taste. The forums we found testified that this cartridge, still made in Japan, not China, will not disappoint! This needle will also be a great upgrade for almost any '208' type needle on our site.

Great- but you can do better
I’ll note that I'm using this stylus with a Signet MR cartridge. The stylus is a great tracker. Inner groove distortion disappears and sibilance is only audible on poorly mastered records. The sound is very good, if a bit lacking in bass. However, I recently upgraded to the ATN150MLX stylus. This stylus will fit on any body that the ATN440 fits on and is universally better. If you can spend the extra $60, go with the ATN150MLX. If not, you'll find the ATN440MLA to be a sweet sounding stylus.

This is a great cartridge for the price. It sounds much better than the Shure m97 and the Grado Black. is the best price period. I look nowhere else for this beauty.
