Audio-Technica VM520EBH Phono Turntable Cartridge with Headshell

Including a VM520 elliptical bonded cartridge and an AT-HS10BK headshell, Audio-Technica's VM520EBH combo kit lets you easily upgrade your turntable's sound.
The VM520EB/H combo kit includes the VM520EB elliptical bonded dual moving magnet cartridge premounted on the AT-HS10BK universal 1/2"-mount headshell. The Audio-Technica VM520EB is part of the 500 Series in their VM cartridge line -- a line that harks back to A-T's early days as a manufacturer primarily of high-end phono cartridges, while also incorporating today's advanced technology. Like all VM cartridges, the VM520EB 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 0.3 x 0.7 mil elliptical bonded stylus tracks the record groove with high accuracy for outstanding audio reproduction. Includes mounting hardware.
