The AT440MLB Dual Magnet Turntable Cartridge from Audio-Technica is a cartridge for use with turntables that features a MicroLine-shaped diamond tip for improved high-frequency response with less wear and distortion than conventional linear or elliptical styli.

The MicroLine stylus mimics the shape of the cutting stylus used to produce the original master disc, enabling it to track portions of the groove other styli cannot reach, resulting in accurate tracing of high-frequency passages and ruler-flat frequency response within the audible range.

It features Audio-Technica's Paratoroidal Signal Generator, which is composed of a unified, laminated coil core wound with a single piece of wire. Internal mechanical and electrical connections are eliminated, minimizing magnetic losses and ensuring better signal transfer.

A gold-plated beryllium cantilever improves stability, while the dual magnet system offers channel separation.
