Limited Edition Shibata Stylus
The clear-body Shibata stylus can pick up ultra-high frequencies, allowing you to discover sound you’ve never heard before. The Shibata stylus is easily interchangeable with the 0.3 x 0.7 mil elliptical stylus AT-VMN95EBK (black) that comes installed on the included cartridge. (Four additional VM95 stylus types – conical, SP conical, elliptical nude, Microlinear – are available separately.)
Carefully Constructed Components
A sensor-monitored motor ensures a continuously accurate platter rotation speed of 33-1/3 or 45 RPM. Specially designed high-isolation, height-adjustable feet, keep the turntable stabilized and an AC adapter keeps the AC/DC conversion outside the chassis, reducing noise in the signal chain. Adjustable VTA (vertical tracking angle) and dynamic anti-skate control ensure the turntable can be used with cartridges of various heights and weights.
The art of Analog
“It is an honor to provide a quality audio experience to millions of people throughout the world. What begins as a simple vibration – a subtle movement – results in an emotional connection, whether that be when listening deeply to an album or sharing your voice with the world.” – Kazuo Matsushita President of Audio-Technica Corporation
Playing for Change
A percentage of all 60th Anniversary hi-fi sales will be donated to the Playing For Change Foundation, which was established to create positive change through music and arts education for marginalized and at-risk youth, most specifically in the developing world. We are proud to support both Playing For Change – a movement dedicated to inspiring and connecting the world through music- and its partner organization, The Playing For Change Foundation, and share with them the vision that music should be accessible to all.
60 years ago, Hideo Matsushita established Audio-Technica in a small flat in Shinjuku, Tokyo. Inspired by our emotional connections to audio, Matsushita dedicated his time to creating affordable audio equipment to heighten everyday listening experiences.
