We recommend it as a replacement cartridge for a wide variety of turntables - in particular all the Japanese brands from the 70s and 80s like Apan, Hitachi, JVC, Kenwood, Luxman, Marantz, National Panasonic Technics, Onkyo, Pioneer, Sansui, Sanyo, Sharp, Sony, Teac, Toshiba, Yamaha etc.
When mounted in a headshell it needs to be correctly aligned and the tracking force and anti-skating set to 2gm. An Ortofon alignment template and stylus force gauge are useful tools to help do this correctly.
This VM95 Series cartridge with 0.6 mil conical stylus fits half-inch mount turntables. The cartridge’s special coil design delivers a powerful output level of 4.0 mV. It also offers excellent channel separation and low distortion for outstanding tonal quality. The durable, low-resonance housing includes threaded inserts that enable the cartridge to be mounted to the headshell with just two screws – no nuts required. And since all VM95 Series share the same body, the stylus can be replaced with any of the six interchangeable AT-VMN95 replacement styli.
