N440MR LP GEAR STYLUS FOR AUDIO-TECHNICA AT-140ML AT140ML CARTRIDGE
- High-Grade stylus for Audio-Technica AT440ML, AT440MLa AT440Mlb, AT140LC, VM540ML, VM740ML, AT150MLX
The Audio-Technica AT440MLa, AT440MLb and At150MLX were highly rated cartridges that have been discontinued - victims of the consumer electronics product life cycle where the product life cycle is around 2-3 years which means a
product has to be revised or updated every two years or so. On one side, this is beneficial to the industry and consumerss since it forces constant research and innovation. On the other hand, it is wasteful and counterproductive. This fosters
short-term quality and product thinking - products that have a short-term life on the shelf. They break or sound old after a few years!
AT LP GEAR®, our philosopjy runs counter. We believe that products created for perfection should last a lifetime of enjoyment or much longer like the Guarneri violin. Older than the USA—
273 years old to be exact, the Vieuxtemps Guarneri Del Gesu-1741 named for its most famous owner, the leading Belgian virtuoso and composer who esteemed it so much he wanted to be buried with it, recently
became the most expensive viloin in the world, selling for an estimated $16 million. Its new owner anonymously donated the historic instrument to violinist Anne Akiko Meyers, on loan for the rest of her life.
Thus we curated this stylus as testatment of our esteem for the Audio-Technica AT440mL, AT140LC and AT150MLX cartridges so devoted owners can continue to hear their gem at its best for many decades to come. It is a loftly goal — we believe its
new soul transcends its former self. It has incredible chemistry that is heard, felt and enjoyed!
