About the Audio-Technica VM760SLC

Out-of-this-world fidelity and frequency response

Playing great records with a standard, low-cost cartridge is like using a blunt object to do microsurgery — you need a very fine stylus to pull all of the information out of a record groove, and to avoid degrading both the stylus and the record over time.

Out-of-this-world fidelity and frequency response

Playing great records with a standard, low-cost cartridge is like using a blunt object to do microsurgery — you need a very fine stylus to pull all of the information out of a record groove, and to avoid degrading both the stylus and the record over time.

The Audio-Technica VM760SLC features a superb 1.5 x 0.28 mil Shibata stylus that even Goldilocks would love — it sits in the groove "just right," so it can read all of the nuanced information contained within. That means high fidelity, and incredible frequency response from 20-30,000 Hz. If you want to get the most out of your valuable records over the long haul, it's an excellent choice.
