audio technica AT7 V m/m cartridge3 May 2017I have used several different cartridges over the years and am a fan of Ortofons in general having used a 2m blue and a 2m black in the past.I currently own a cadenza black but I kept seeing this AT7 V crop up in audio forums so decided to give one a try.It's not available in the UK but it was supplied very promptly by Decibel.I must admit to testing it without huge expectations due to it's relatively budget cost.How wrong I was.This is hands down one of the best m/m cartridges I have EVER heard.After the first disc made me sit up and take notice I began to try every usual test disc in my collection.It handled every one with ease.Bass was tight and controlled,mid-range was open and detailed and top end was simply fantastic.Vocal quality was as good as I have heard at ANY price!.Bear in mind I usually use a high end moving coil cartridge.I was hearing detail on some discs that I have NEVER heard before.This cartridge punches WAY above it's weight.To sum up,if you are looking for a do-it-all cartridge with scintillating performance,at a great price,I have no hesitation in saying that THIS is the one for you. And thanks to Decibel for the the great service.
