Audio Technica VM530EN Dual Moving Magnet Cartridge

The VM530EN is a high-end elliptical stylus model featuring a lightweight nude elliptical stylus designed to reduce the execution mass of the vibration system. This innovative design enables fuller frequency reproduction, delivering exceptional sound quality and clarity.

Internationally Patented Dual Magnet Design

Audio Technica's internationally patented Dual Magnet design is incorporated into the VM530EN cartridge, replicating the structure of the cutter head for unparalleled performance. With two precisely positioned magnets arranged in a "V" shape, this design ensures outstanding channel separation, extended frequency response, and superb tracking, capturing the nuances of your favourite records with precision.

Para-Toroidal Generating System

The VM530EN cartridge utilises para-toroidal coils to improve generating efficiency and offer superb linearity. By minimising the leakage of magnetic flux in this continuous and unitised magnetic circuit, the VM530EN delivers low distortion and enhanced sonic accuracy. Additionally, the use of laminated cores optimises permeability, further improving performance.

Centre Shield Plate for Reduced Crosstalk

Featuring a permalloy centre shield plate, the VM530EN effectively separates left and right channels, suppressing electrical crosstalk to below 40dB. This ensures clear and detailed sound reproduction, mirroring the crosstalk value found in the grooves of the record itself.

500 Series Compatibility

The VM530EN is compatible with the 500 series, featuring a standard cartridge body equipped with para-toroidal coils, a centre shield plate, and 6N-OFC coil wire, delivering exceptional performance comparable to higher-end models in the 700 series.

Elliptical Nude Stylus

The elliptical nude stylus of the VM530EN follows the groove modulation with greater precision compared to a conical stylus, offering improved frequency and phase responses while reducing distortion. Experience accurate playback and superior performance with this high-quality cartridge from Audio Technica.

  • Aluminium Cantilever: The stylus features an aluminium cantilever, enhancing durability and reliability for consistent performance.
  • Para-Toroidal Coils: Improved generating efficiency is achieved with para-toroidal coils, resulting in enhanced signal generation and accuracy.
  • Centre Shield Plate: A centre shield plate is positioned between the left and right channels to diminish crosstalk, ensuring clear and precise audio reproduction.
  • Durable Low Resonance Polymer Housing: Housed within a robust low resonance polymer casing, the stylus effectively minimises vibrations and resonance, preserving the integrity of the audio output.
