Great cartridge!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This replaced my AT-140LC (line contact) cartridge. The sound is very similar....but more refined. I attribute this to the better body construction. The Shibata stylus profile, like the line contact reduces or hides surface noise. I rarely ever hear a pop or a click. For the money...well, for today's money...I don't think you can do any better! It immerses you in the glorious sound vinyl can offer!

Pros: Sound quality....

Cons: None.

A bargain compared to Bronze

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have a Thorens TD 309 and I have tried a few cartridges before I got to this one. My turntable came with a rebranded AT-95 variant which sounded pretty good on my setup (Martin Logan Motion 40s, McIntosh MA5300). I upgraded to the Grado Red2 on the recommendation of someone I trust. That sounds pretty good but has a hum in my system (which is a common issue with Grado). I then caved to the marketing and bought an Ortofon Bronze. This thing sounded pretty good but not at the asking price and there is zero warmth to Bronze. It is nice but I didn't like it so I sold it and started looking at Nagaoka but I didn't want something that can't be bought easily in America and does not have much retail support. I love Crutchfield and they carry the whole AT line so I bought the VM750SH. For less money than the Bronze, you get what I think is a better sounding cartridge for less money. Bonus is you just have to buy a stylus to move up to the VM760SLC which is cool to not have to change the cart to get the next model up. This cart easily has the detail of the bronze and a better low end punch. I listen to Jazz, Classical, and some old rock stuff (Van Morrison, Fleetwood Mac, etc.)

Pros: Great Sound Plays everything I throw at it Value at this price

Cons: I have not found any

Features

Dual Moving Magnet Mono Phono Cartridge: The VM750SH Shibata stylus cartridge is a premier 700 Series model in Audio-Technica's new VM cartridge line. Like all VM cartridges, the VM750SH is equipped with dual magnets that are positioned to match the left and right channels in the stereo record groove for outstanding channel separation and extended frequency response. The cartridge's Shibata stylus provides greater surface contact with the record groove than an elliptical stylus does, resulting in the pickup of ultra-high frequencies with less groove stress and distortion. Includes mounting hardware.

Well I do not know what the Signet sounded like. All I can tell you is its sounds better than my AT 440mla or my denon dl110. Its very smooth at all freqs. It picks out every detail. In a good system its very reveling. On my pioneer plx 1000 I find it sounds better tracking at 1.9 weight. [ Lester  Jul 16, 2018 ]
