Product Description

Audio Technica VM530EN/H Headshell/Cartridge Combo Kit

The VM530EN/H combo kit includes the VM530EN elliptical nude dual moving magnet cartridge premounted on the AT-HS10BK universal 1/2″-mount headshell.

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 required mounting hardware.

A top-notch cartridge and headshell team

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 less overall mass, and more accurate frequency reproduction. The cartridge comes pre-mounted in an AT-HS10BK universal headshell designed to fit a standard 1/2″ mount for compatibility with a wide range of turntables.

The lightweight AT-HS10BK is a universal 1/2″-mount headshell designed for 4-pin turntable cartridges. The die-cast aluminum body is designed to minimize vibration and provides a finger-lift at the front position to enable precise placement of the stylus onto the record. The gold-plated lead wires offer lossless signal transmission. The headshell ships with mounting hardware.
