Product Description

Audio Technica VM530EN Dual Moving Magnet Stereo Phono Cartridge is equipped with a lightweight nude elliptical stylus to reduce the execution mass of the vibration system enabling fuller frequency reproduction.

Cutter-Head Structure

Instead of using a single, large magnet, the two magnets are arranged in the shape of a "V" replicating the cutter head structure. 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.

Magnetic Circuit

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.

Channel 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.

500 Range

This standard cartridge body is fitted with the same paratoroidal coils, centre shield plate and 6N-OFC coil wire as the 700 series. VM530EN sits below the VM540ML sharing many of its features but with an EN stylus used instead of the lower wear/distortion MicroLine Stylus.

Elliptical Nude 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.

Key Features

- Aluminium cantilever
- Para-toroidal coils improve generating efficiency
- Centre shield plate reduces crosstalk between channels
- Durable low resonance polymer housing
