RE: An interesting look at radical stylus profiles. Link.

I agree. Azimuth is the other critical parameter and I doubt the reviewer in that article paid much attention to it because it sounded like they aligned the cartridge once and just swapped out the styli. That would affect the perception of imaging and detail.
IME, the Microline can't be beaten for maintaining consistent quality across the entire side of an LP. I would agree with the reviewer about the ML character - AT MMs sporting the ML (440ML and 150MLX) have tended to sound a bit artificial compared to the MC bodies, but that is down to the voicing of the MMs - they all have a lift in the brilliance band which gives an overlit presentation. The 150MLX was better, but still not a natural sounding cartridge to me.
