| The VM540ML is the standard model VM type dual magnet cartridge equipped with MicroLine® diamond stylus. Distortion is low even on the inner circumference of a record because the curvature radius of the stylus tip does not alter even if the stylus becomes worn. The cartridge features an aluminium tapered cantilever, para-toroidal coils to improve generating efficiency, permalloy centre shield plate between left and right channels to reduce crosstalk and durable low resonance polymer housing.|
The new VM range of cartridges incorporate Audio Technica's internationally patented dual magnet design that replicates the structure of the vinyl cutter head by using two magnets arranged in the shape of a "V" to match the positions of the left and right channels in the stereo groove walls for optimum channel separation, extended frequency response and superb tracking. The styli fitted are interchangeable throughout the range so it is possible to upgrade a cartridge by fitment of a higher specification stylus at any time.
