Audio Technica AT-VM95SH Shibata Stereo Cartridge

The AT-VM95SH features a Nude Shibata stylus, one of the most esteemed stylus formats by high-end audiophiles. The Shibata stylus produces strong and rich mid and bass sounds, in addition to offering a frequency response of up to 25,000 Hz.

VM95 Series - Styli Compatibility Every cartridge's diamond stylus becomes worn after a period of play.

  • Approximately 500 hours for a conical stylus
  • 300 hours for an Elliptical stylus
  • 1000 hours for a Microlinear stylus
  • 800 hours for a Shibata stylus

The VM95 Series dual moving magnet cartridges can be used almost indefinitely by replacing the interchangeable stylus. You no longer need to purchase a complete cartridge when your diamond is worn out; you can simply buy the matching replacement stylus or even enjoy the experience of upgrading your cartridge with a different stylus.

All six models of VM95 Series cartridges use the same electromagnetic engine-body, making each of the six replacement styli perfectly compatible:

  • AT-VMN95C
  • AT-VMN95E
  • AT-VMN95EN
  • AT-VMN95ML
  • AT-VMN95SH
  • AT-VMN95SP

AT-VM9E Series Compatibility with the AT-XP Series DJ Cartridges The electromagnetic engine-body of the XP-Series is fully compatible with all replacement styli of the VM95 Series and will deliver more output voltage than the VM95 Series cartridge, providing improved compatibility with phono inputs of Professional DJ Mixers.

The suspension design and compliance of XP-Series styli have been optimized for intensive DJ’ing, including possible manual cueing and back-cueing. The VM95 Series suspension design and compliances have been designed for optimum audiophile reproduction.

  • ATN-XP5
