High-end model featuring a MicroLine™ stylus in an aluminium die-cast alloy body. In addition to outstanding high-frequency reproduction, this model enables clear sound image localisation.
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.
Purchased this cartridge to fit to my Rega planar 3 which had the standard Rega elys 2 fitted. Fitting can be fiddily but once installed the sound quality upgrade is without doubt, highly recommend.

Thank you Analogue Seduction for the excellent customer service and prompt shipping.The VM740ML is an excellent MM cart with a typical modern AT MM sound, detailed and slightly bright (but not etched) with unparalleled tracking and sibilant handling, if your speakers are slightly warmish sounding the AT can be an excellent match.Recommended.

High quality build and finish. As with the other cartridges from the new VM line, the tracking force has been increased for better compatibility with common medium-mass tonearms. The rest of the design and look are traditional for AT MM cartridges.Sound: transparent, fatigue-free, with good dynamics and lots of details. Unlike some previous AT designs, there is no unwanted HF lift-up. The cartridge never sounds too bright or harsh. My opinion - very good and recommended product.
