Product Description

Audio Technica VM530EN Dual Moving Magnet Cartridge

The VM530EN is a top-end elliptical stylus cartridge in Audio-Technica’s new VM cartridge line – a line that harks back to A-T’s early days as a manufacturer primarily of high-end phono cartridges, while also incorporating today’s advanced technology. Like all VM cartridges, the VM530EN is equipped with dual magnets that are positioned to match the left and right channels in the stereo record groove for outstanding channel separation and extended frequency response. The cartridge’s lightweight 0.3 x 0.7 mil elliptical nude stylus reduces the execution mass of the vibration system, enabling fuller frequency reproduction and less tracking distortion than a bonded stylus. Includes all mounting hardware.

Audio-Technica VM Technology – Closer to the Cutterhead

A cutter head carves out the record grooves. The modulations in the groove are “analog” mechanical equivalents of the original audio signals. To “read” these modulations, Audio-Technica developed the patented Dual Magnet design which duplicates 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 positions of the left and right channels in the stereo groove walls. Consequently, the VM design provides outstanding channel separation, extended frequency response and superb tracking. All models feature high-purity 6N-OFC (99.9999% pure oxygen free copper) wiring for maximum sonic purity and extraordinary resolution of fine musical detail.

With a phono cartridge, the tiniest detail can make a huge difference in how you enjoy your records. The Audio-Technica VM530EN, for instance, features a 0.3 x 0.7 mil elliptical nude stylus, which means that the carefully-shaped diamond that reads the grooves has no metal shank holding it in place. That means less overall mass, and more accurate frequency reproduction. The upshot? It just sounds better.
