I’ve been using this as a replacement stylus on my AT440MLa because of the dramatic price increases for that stylus and its replacement, the 540ML. This one sports a nude elliptical diamond, which for this price is an absolute steal. It tracks almost as beautifully as the AT440MLa, only having a little trouble on very long sides. It handles complex passages with ease and has a detailed but natural presentation with no obvious emphasis. It misses some of the minute details of the 440, but that’s to be expected given it’s an elliptical rather than micro-line. Still, its performance makes me very happy. This stylus and its cartridge outperform the nude elliptical Ortofon 2M Blue for half the price. This is a fantastic choice for someone with a 120/440 cartridge needing a new stylus. Once again, AT is hands down the best value in phono cartridges.
