VM520EB/H

DUAL MOVING MAGNET STEREO CARTRIDGE WITH HEADSHELL

Standard elliptical stylus model with an elliptical bonded stylus that reduces tracing distortion and allows for higher sound reproduction accuracy. Pre-assembled with a lightweight aluminium AT-HS10 headshell, the user can enjoy a hassle-free set-up.

  • Aluminium cantilever
  • Para-toroidal coils improve generating efficiency
  • Centre shield plate between the left and right channels reduces crosstalk
  • Pre-assembled with a lightweight aluminium headshell (AT-HS10) for a quicker, easier set-up
 

AUDIO-TECHNICA’S INTERNATIONALLY-PATENTED DUAL MAGNET DESIGN REPLICATES THE STRUCTURE OF THE CUTTER HEAD.

Instead of using a single, large magnet, the two magnets are arranged in the shape of a "V". The two magnets are positioned precisely to match the positions of the left and right channels in the stereo groove walls. Consequently, the VM design ensures outstanding channel separation, extended frequency response and superb tracking.

Para-toroidal generating system

Para-toroidal coils improve generating efficiency and offers superb linearity, since leakage of magnetic flux in this continuous and unitised magnetic circuit is low. Permeability of the cores is also optimised through the use of laminated cores.

Centre shield plate reduces crosstalk

A permalloy centre shield plate enables the effective separation of left and right channels, suppressing electrical crosstalk to below 40dB. This is similar to the actual crosstalk value found in the grooves of the record itself.

 

PREASSEMBLED WITH HS10 HEADSHELL

VM520EB cartridge is fitted onto a die cast aluminium HS10 Headshell suitable for 4-pin turntable arms.

ELLIPTICAL BONDED STYLUS

Elliptical diamond stylus follows the groove modulation with greater precision compared to a conical stylus, offering improved frequency and phase responses whilst reducing distortion.
