The Audio-Technica ATN-3472ML ATN3472ML needle stylus
features a MicroLine diamond for superior high frequency
response with less record wear and distortion than
elliptical or conventional linear contact styli. The
small curving rate of the MicroLine stylus enables it to
track and playback the inner part of the record groove
that other styli can hardly maintain. Also the curving
rate of the MicroLine stylus does not change until the
stylus is almost worn unlike that of conventional styli
which increases as they are used. Accordingly, the
MicroLine stylus has a much longer average playing life
and offers reduced record wear.
The stylus was made in Japan by Audio-Technica. It was especially produced for a major Japanese company who
decided not to order the excess last batch. We decided to pick it up and have just a few remaining.
