About the Audio-Technica VM740ML

Stay in the groove

What makes one stylus better than another? The shape and mounting of the stylus — the tiny diamond that traces the grooves of the record — is where small changes make a big difference in sound quality. The Audio-Technica VM740ML phono cartridge features an advanced 2.2 x 0.12 mil MicroLine stylus in a durable aluminum alloy housing. It gets deep into the cut and reproduces the smallest details of the music. When you're talking about the warm, natural sound of great vinyl, that small difference can mean everything.

Features

Dual Moving Magnet Stereo Cartridge: The VM740ML MicroLine stylus cartridge is a premier 700 Series model in Audio-Technica's new VM cartridge line. Like all VM cartridges, the VM740ML is equipped with dual magnets that are positioned to match the left and right channels in the stereo record groove for outstanding channel separation and extended frequency response. The cartridge's MicroLine stylus allows it to trace the record 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.
