Great separation and accurate treble and bass response. Easy set up and overall 8.5 gram weight. This stylus rivals a moving coil in its warmth. You will also be pleased with audio technica's tech support for use on older turntables like mine. Great value all around.

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....

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
