Audio-Technica VM740ML MM Phono cartridge is a premier 700 Series cartridge in Audio-Technica’s new VM line. Like the similarly-priced AT-150Sa cartridge, The VM740ML cartridge uses MicroLine® stylus that allows tracing the record groove with incredible accuracy, however the gold-plated boron cantilever is replaced with a tapered aluminium one, which helps to result in incredible detailed sound reproduction. The stylus’s specific shape wears better than other styli and helps to reduce the wear of records and enables clear sound image localisation. The dual magnets are placed to match both right and left channels in the stereo record groove for extended frequency response (20-27,000 Hz) and 28 dB (1 kHz) channel separation. Includes mounting hardware.
