    yeah the AT cart will definitely be better than the Stanton for digitizing vinyl - you made the right choice. No slight on the 500AL - it's a workhorse with a great price; perfect for budget DJ use. I first learned to scratch on 500ALs; they can take the roughhousing and they can cut through dust and still sound decent. But the AT makes more sense from a sound quality perspective if you're digitizing music and not really scratching or mixing.

    Since you have the 500AL already installed on it you can compare them yourself side by side and see which you like better.

    Very good suggestion, the M44-7 is pretty much my favorite cartridge ever but since he said her doesn't scratch, maybe he should get the M44G.

    Funnily enough just bought the M44G to replace the AT cart mentioned above which was unfortunately faulty. They both have similar freq response however I found the M44G gave me more volume headroom for recording because it's a club cart and therefore 'louder'.

    Will the Shure M44-7 Cartridge fit onto the Audio Technica at95e cart?

    I'm in the process of converting a ton of old reggae using my M44G with very good results.
