Audio-Technica VM740ML cartridge

Audio-Technica VM740ML cartridge

Winner in an 11-cartridge shootout - "It sounds like a rather good high output moving coil, lacking just a bit of the delicacy of an MC. The resolution of fine detail is tremendous and the presentation somewhat forward, with excellent tonal color."1

MicroLine nude square shank stylus
Extremely accurate groove tracking
Aluminum tapered cantilever
Improved generating efficiency from paratoroidial coils
Reduced crosstalk from center shield plate
Die-cast aluminum alloy housing for reduced vibration and electrical shielding

Product Info


Audio Technica's VM740ML phono cartridge features a MicroLine stylus which enables extremely accurate groove tracking. The VM740ML is furnished with a die-cast aluminum alloy housing which reduces vibration while adding a natural electrical shield. The VM740ML is equipped with a VMN40ML MicroLine nude stylus that traces the groove with incredible accuracy, resulting in nuanced audio reproduction that elliptical and conical styli simply can't match. The stylus's multilevel shape also wears better than other styli, while reducing the wear on your records.
