Product Description

Audio Technica VM510CB Dual Moving Magnet Stereo Cartridge is an entry-level model equipped with a conical bonded round stylus which is less likely to be affected by placement and boasts stable tracking performance.

Cutter Head Design

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.

Suppressed 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.

Para-toroidal Coils

Permeability of the cores is also optimised through the use of laminated cores. VM510CB uses para-toroidal coils to enhance generating efficiency and deliver superb linearity as this continuous unitised magnetic circuit has a low leakage of magnetic flux.

AT's 500 Series

VM510CB is a standard cartridge body fitted with the para-toroidal coils, centre shield plate and 6N-OFC coil wire which is all the same features as can be found in the high-end 700 series. The use of a conical stylus in the cartridge makes this a great affordable alternative to the higher priced models.

Conical Bonded Stylus

The benefit of conical styli is the ball surface of the stylus touches the groove of vinyl records precisely even if the cartridge is 'lean'. Due to its stability, it has been used widely at radio stations. It has a less critical tilt angle adjustment allowing for more flexible use on various tonearms.

Key Features

- Conical Bonded stylus
- VM type dual magnet system
- Para-toroidal coils improve generating efficiency
