VM Type (Dual Magnet) Stereo Cartridge

$119 + shipping (includes gst)

Audio-Technica’s AT100E VM stereo cartridge features a structure that improves performance of the vibration system, allowing the stylus perfect contact to the record surface. Additionally, it adopts a lossless Paratoroidal generator coil system to their cartridge bodies that results in peak generating efficiency. Stacking two cores makes further improvements to high frequency characteristics by separating the right-and-left channels from the center shield plate, resulting in reduced electrical cross talk. The VM type AT100-series’ dual magnet vibration and generation systems have been highly praised all over the world and have become a long-selling series.
