Dual Moving Magnet Stereo Cartridge with MicroLine™ stylus

  • MicroLine™ profile diamond stylus
  • VM type dual magnet system
  • Para-toroidal coils improve generating efficiency
  • Aluminium tapered cantilever
  • Centre shield plate between stereo channels
  • Durable low resonance polymer housing

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.

 
 

500 Series

Standard cartridge body fitted with the para-toroidal coils, centre shield plate, and 6N-OFC coil wire which is the same as 500 series.

audio technical VM540ML

1 January 2019
Hi Brian, I have been meaning to write this review since receiving my VM 540ML cartridge from Decibel HiFi a while ago. This cart is a gem. Smooth detailed sound and tracks beautifully. I have, in recent years had an Ortofon 2M Black and prior to that Goldring 1042, both very good cartridges, but the Audio technical takes the cake for overall performance and ease of set up. It has performed perfectly in rega RB 250 and RB300 arms and now resides in and Audio Technical AT 1005 mk2. It’s a keeper! Thanks to decibel hi fi for the great and friendly service. Best Regards, Barry, Woodend Vic
