The AT95e has been around forever and is often included with budget audiophile turntables. I have been using variants of this cartridge for more than 20 years. I had earlier versions of this cartridge on my Revolver turntable from the mid 1980s and my two Linn tables from the early 1990s. This cartridge is one of the easiest to live with. It has excellent, natural tonal balance, decent tracking and quite durable. I currently have three of these, one on my Pro-ject Debut III and two variants for my Technics 1200. Compared with more expensive Audio Technica cartridges such as the AT110e or 120e/t, this cartridge is slightly fuller sounding and less extended at the frequency extremes; i.e. it is not as bright, open or airy at the top, nor is it as deep or articulate in the bass. But it is excellent. In fact it is the perfect budget product. Low price, great performance and no nasties - its only errors are those of omission.

Compared to other great budget cartridges such as the Ortofon Omega or OM5, the AT95e is less woolly sounding in the middle. The Ortofons have more bloom in the middle and are also less tight sounding. The AT sounds more even but will be less forgiving of noisy LPs than the budget Ortofons. Compared with the budget Grado Black, the AT95e is fuller sounding and a better tracker. The Grado however is capable of amazing detail retrieval and has a lush midrange. The Grado does not work on some tables (such as Rega) due to a hum issue. The AT95e, like the Ortofons is usable on a wide range of popular turntables such as Rega, Pro-ject/Music Hall and Technics.

There are only two drawbacks to the AT95e. You must remove the stylus to install it in most headshells (something you should do anyway). I found it a bit fiddly to install.

I got this as a replacement for my old JVC table (from the 80s).
I wouldn't say set-up was "dead simple", as this was the first time I'd ever replaced a cartridge. I had been expecting it to be a 10-minute operation, and then I would be kicking back with a beer and a Clash record. I was wrong! Doing this, and most things, with a turntable is a very delicate procedure, and takes time and patience and a very small screwdriver.
Alignment is something you have to be familiar with. I wasn't. I had no idea I would have to align the cartridge, I'm embarrassed to say. I installed it, put on a record and was appalled at how awful it sounded... the audio from the left channel sounded like it was going through a distortion pedal.
Luckily, there are some simple protractors online to get the cartridge aligned. While doing this, I discovered that my tonearm's counterweight was installed backwards (can't believe I had never noticed that before). It's a miracle I had been enjoying the table for nearly three years. Once I got that fixed, balanced the arm and aligned the cartridge, I was completely satisfied with how it sounded. The price is right on this one, and it sounds awesome.

Over the years, I've owned just about every major brand of cartridge around (Grado, Shure, Pickering, Ortofon, Stanton, A-T), and this one ranks with the best of them. I got one of these to put in my vintage Thorens TD-160 turntable (Circa 1975). It is well-suited for tonearms with medium to high mass because the compliance of the cantilever is moderate. If you have an older turntable from the 70's (AR, Thorens, Dual, Pioneer, Technics, etc.), look no further. It sounds great,has good bass extension, smooth mids and highs. The stylus shape is forgiving of record wear (does not pick up a lot of surface noise) and it tracks warps well. I recommend running it at 2 grams.
A bargain at the price.

I mounted this on a Technics headshell for an SL2000 and it worked very well. I was surprised to get the audio quality from
that old but reliable TT. It definitely sounded better than the original EPC270C II.

I have a few turntables from a old Benjamin ELAC Miracord to my JVC QL-Y7, I been trying a few cartridges that would work with the Miracord for my less than desirable condition LPs, and on the cheap $$.
This AT95E is my best under $100 cartridge that has worked for me. Sounded wonderful right from the start. Normally I'll play 50 or more hours for the cartridge/stylus to settle in, but this AT95E sounds very nice from the 1st LP.
I set it up using a Baerwald protractor, set the tracking force per recommendations using a digital gauge and it has tracked very well and sounds better than I expected since. I have approximately 25 hours play so far, several of my older less than excellent condition LPs, and the AT95E played better than a handful of other under $100 carts in my system on this turntable. Then do this for less than than $50 on a Miracord with its arm mass - very nice..
When I wear this one down, I'll have no 2nd thoughts replacing it with another AT95E.

I find the more $$ a cartridge is not always the best. My other main turntable, I have carts from just a little over $100 to over $1500 and my two favorite carts are one just over $100 and two others $500, so if you think you might be missing a lot because the AT95E is so affordable, you might get more than one would think. There are a lot of variables in systems and ones desires, and this AT95E fills one of my needs within my system.
Great bargain, good tracking, respectable specs for a cart at the price point I give it 5 stars for a under $50 cartridge. What's not to like on the AT95E. The reviews for a less than $50 cartridges, I had to give it a try and I'm glad I did.
I also got the AT-120E (for another turntable), and these AT cartridges give a lot for the $$.
