Audio-Technica VM540ML/H Headshell and Cartridge Combo Kit
The Audio-Technica VM540ML/H combo kit includes the VM540ML MicroLine dual moving magnet cartridge premounted on the AT-HS10BK universal 1/2″-mount headshell.
The VM540ML MicroLine stylus cartridge is the premier 500 Series model 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 VM540ML is equipped with dual magnets that position to match the left and right channels in the stereo record groove for outstanding channel separation and prolong frequency response.
The Audio-Technica VM540ML/H cartridge’s MicroLine stylus allows it to trace the record groove with incredible accuracy, resulting in nuanced audio reproduction that elliptical and conical styli simply can’t match. The stylus’s multilevel shape also wears better than other styli, while reducing the wear on your records. Includes mounting hardware.

Preassembled with the AT-HS10BK Universal Headshell
The lightweight aluminum AT-HS10BK is a universal ½”-mount headshell for 4-pin turntable cartridges. Featuring an aluminum die-cast body, the AT-HS10 is to keep vibration to the bare minimum for the Audio-Technica VM540ML/H.
MicroLine profile diamond stylus offers high frequency response with less wear and distortion than elliptical or conventional linear contact styli.
Audio-Technica’s Dual Magnet Design
Instead of using a single, large magnet, the two magnets create the shape of a ‘V’. The two magnets position precisely to match the positions of the left and right channels in the stereo groove walls on the Audio-Technica VM540ML/H. Consequently, the VM design ensures outstanding channel separation, extended frequency response and superb tracking.
