This replacement stylus is a great value. I have a high end turntable and have used different cartridges over the years at various prices. This one sounds tremendous. I usually change the stylus once every year or two as I play a lot of records. Lets hope that Amazon continues to carry these Audio Technica cartridges & replacement stylus for years to come.

I saw some reviews stating they received a generic needle brand and were upset since the posting advertised it was an audio technica needle. luckily the one i received was a legit AT needle, exactly as pictured (white and with AT logo) and not the unmarked yellow one that many of the other buyers received. I'm not sure if the amazon seller/store realzed they got complaints for the ol' switcheroo or if i was lucky, but regardless, i'm happy that i got the item i paid for!
The sound is great. I'm not sure why it sounds better than the stock needle i received with my AT turntable. They're identical needles, i only bought this one as a backup, but as soon as i tested it out upon arrival, the sound quality of my LPs was remarkably improved. I guess maybe the stock ATN3600Ls that come with the turntable have a lower quality needle?

At the time this replacement arrived I was in the middle of servicing a couple of turntables for different customers and between them I had three more, brand new styli for the same cartridge to compare with: two from JICO, and one from Pfanstiehl. I was very disappointed with both samples from JICO which lacked detail and dynamics, The Pfanstiehl is up there, it gave clean and crisp sound just like the AT but it's not any cheaper if you purchase the AT and qualify for free shipping from Amazon. For as long as AT continues to manufacture the original stylus for the AT3600 cartridge I don't see why you should get anything else.

Worked for my Audio Technica LP60. Fast shipping and stylus was brand new in original packaging. These things are still to damn expensive though.
