High-end elliptical stylus model equipped with a light-weight nude elliptical stylus to reduce the execution mass of the vibration system. This enables fuller frequency reproduction.
DUAL MOVING MAGNET STEREO CARTRIDGE
Using an ultra-lightweight stylus tip ground to a high level of precision, we have achieved a combination of low distortion rate with fuller frequency reproduction during playback. This stylus tip extracts every possible piece of information from the grooves on a record.
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 the positions of the left and right channels in the stereo groove walls. Consequently, the VM design ensures outstanding channel separation, extended frequency response and superb tracking.
Para-toroidal coils improve generating efficiency and offers superb linearity, since leakage of magnetic flux in this continuous and unitised magnetic circuit is low. Permeability of the cores is also optimised through the use of laminated cores.
A permalloy centre shield plate enables the effective separation of left and right channels, suppressing electrical crosstalk to below 40dB. This is similar to the actual crosstalk value found in the grooves of the record itself.
My newly purchased vintage Thorens TD 160 came with an old Shure cartridge. When I replaced it with this Audio Technica VM530EN the deck really came alive. The VM530EN has a wonderful clarity but not at the expense of warmth, especially in the mid frequencies. The bottom is rich and clear. I'm a happy man, what can I say?
