The VM520EB has a standard cartridge body fitted with the para-toroidal coils, centre shield plate, and 6N-OFC coil wire(same as used for the 700 series).


Elliptical Bonded Styli

To reduce the tracking distortion and pinch-effect of a conical stylus, the elliptical stylus is made with a small effective radius to overcome these two conditions and provide more detailed audio content.

VMCartridge structure

Audio-Technica’s high performance para-toroidal coil structure is inherited in this new VM generation.

Toroidal ring coils are separated by a centre magnetic shield for complete electrical channel separation. As a result, the new Dual Moving Magnet cartridge series offers audiophiles a delicate-yet-stable sound performance at affordable price positions - a blend that continues to allow Audio-Technica products to be favoured for high-fidelity sound.
