Quick Overview

Enjoy remarkably accurate tracking, separation, and performance when listening to vinyl with this dual-moving magnet phono cartridge. The 1/2-inch mount cartridge features a MicroLine shaped diamond stylus that tracks portions of the groove that other styli simply cannot reach, ensuring that high-frequency passages sound clear and crisp. The multi-level shape also wears remarkably evenly, extending the lives of both the record and the stylus itself (up to 1,000 hours). In addition, the AT440ML boasts a small curving rate that improves playback over the entire 5 Hz to 32 kHz frequency range, even for the inner part of the record groove. Other features include a gold-plated beryllium cantilever for added durability and a tracking force of 0.8 to 1.6 grams.

    At this price you can't find a better cartridge! Extremely low distortion and accurate tracking to a point hardly imaginable for the price it'll set you back. Yes, even damaged (ofcourse, to a certain level!) records can be brought back to life again as the fine-line needle tip reaches parts of the groove that maybe left unharmed by worn needles or bad adjustments. I have this one, and its bigger brother, the AT-150, in daily use. Feels at home in a wide variety of tone arms but I suggest to try it out on your player by taking that player to the retailer and give YOUR records a spin there. Maybe a little bright here and there but that can easily be cured by selecting a matching pair of speakers. Its main advantage: the lack of distortion, where others in this price range throw in the towel, this one goes on and on......Cheaper alternative: the AT-120 E. Electrically the same product, but a specially machined, nude elliptical stylus instead. Also good for general listening and not that critical performances. (Posted on 06/04/2016)
