from This little fellow is EXCELLENT!!!!!Although I didn't buy my ATN-3600L from here, I am pleased with the performance of this tiny and extremely well-made stylus.Just two years ago, I had ordered an Audio-Technica CN-5625AL cartridge from Parts Express, and just recently I decided to replace its original yellow stylus with this white one. Thankfully, the ATN-3600L is interchangeable with the ATN-5625AL. Anyway, that was a move on my part that has paid off in ENORMOUS dividends, sound quality wise!The audio quality of this stylus is 100 times better than any of the ones I have used in the past 18 years. The low-end response is incredibly improved, there's no distortion of any kind whatsoever, and the fidelity level is equivalent to that of a professional and very high-end large condenser microphone. Yep, folks, it sounds that nice!One thing else I need to make note of here is how good the quality of the stylus shank for the ATN-3600L really is. Instead of being made out of conventional aluminum, the cantilever/shank on this baby is made out of carbon fiber - resulting in light weight and high strength tracking ability. The tip of the stylus is also finer than any of the ones I have ever used in the past - which results in rich, warm tone that only high-end moving coil cartridges could match! I wish there was a way I could attach a song file sample of my vinyl, so that I could prove to you I'm not joking around!In conclusion, please don't be fooled by the low price of this little guy. I like the way my stylus sounds so much that I went out and bought two backups and an additional AT-3600L cartridge for use in the future, ensuring several years of vinyl enjoyment. This stylus has also prompted me to hold off on buying MP3 files or CDs in favor of buying LPs instead - because I really enjoy spinning my records once again.
