VM95 series – stereo pickup, elliptical/naked plus headshell AT-HS6
The AT-VM95EN has a bare, elliptical diamond needle with a round shank, which is ground from one piece and inserted directly into the needle carrier. In this way, a lighter, stiffer transmission system can be realized than with a set diamond needle with a titanium round shank, as in the AT-VM95E. The bare diamond needle is a lot more expensive, but it also offers audibly better audio quality with particularly high fidelity in treble reproduction and excellent impulse response.
Elliptical bare needle
An elliptical diamond needle follows the deflections of the record groove with greater precision compared to a conical needle, allowing for better frequency response with higher phase fidelity and lower distortion.
Pre-mounted on headshell AT-HS6BK
This complete system includes the AT-VM95EN pickup and the AT-HS6BK headshell with die-cast aluminum housing (9 g).
