Product Description

Audio Technica VM540ML Dual Moving Magnet Stereo Cartridge uses a MicroLine stylus, tapered aluminium cantilever and durable low resonance polymer housing.

500 Series

A standard cartridge body fitted with the para-toroidal coils, centre shield plate, and 6N-OFC coil wire which is the same as the rest of the 500 series. This is an affordable alternative to the VM740ML which offers all the same features with the added benefit of a die-cast aluminium alloy housing for a natural electrical shield and reduced vibration.

MicroLine Stylus

MicroLine profile diamond stylus offers high frequency response with less wear and distortion than elliptical or conventional linear contact styli. Distortion is low even on the inner circumference of a record because the curvature radius of the stylus tip does not alter even if the stylus becomes worn.

Dual Magnet 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.

Laminated Cores

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.

Electrical 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.

Key Features

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