Audio-Technica VM740ML MicroLine

The VM740ML MicroLine(R) stylus cartridge is a premier 700 Series model in Audio-Technica's 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 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(R) 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. Includes mounting hardware.

Features:

- VM dual magnet cartridge with MicroLine(R) stylus
- Aluminum tapered cantilever
- Paratoroidal coils improve generating efficiency
- Center shield plate between the left and right channels reduces crosstalk
- Die-cast aluminum alloy housing reduces vibration and adds a natural electrical shield

"Excellent Cartridge!!!"
Overall: I am truly enjoying every minute of this cartridge on my table!! I have owned several turntable cartridges on the budget end, some from Audio-Technica. The last cartridge I owned was the Nagaoka MP110. Although i love that cartridge and the warm, open sound it provides, i felt that something was missing on the top end. I wanted something with just a little more detail in the treble, while avoiding something that was going to be too harsh or bright in my system. I took a chance, and ordered the AT VM740ML, and let me say I am extremely happy with the results!! It really breathed new life into my vinyl. The detail in the treble is there, without being too bright, harsh, or fatiguing. It's just right. The increased treble did not come at the expense of the bass and midrange, as both are full and detailed. The soundstage presented is great, with vocals and instruments always falling in their proper place in the mix. The MicroLine stylus from Audio-Technica just digs out all sorts of details in songs that I never knew was there. If it was recorded in the song, it's going to find it and present it to you. Every album I throw at it is handled beautifully and tracks it like a champ with no inner grove distortion whatsoever. In summary, I am really impressed with this cartridge in Audio-Technica's VM700 series and I hope to try their Special Line Contact stylus one day in the future.
