Product Description

The top of the line in the 500 series, the VM540ML/H combo kit includes the VM540ML MicroLine® dual moving magnet cartridge premounted on the AT-HS10BK universal 1/2"-mount headshell.

Audio Technica VM540ML/H MicroLine Cartridge with Headshell Features

  • VM dual magnet cartridge with MicroLine stylus
  • Aluminum cantilever
  • Paratoroidal coils improve generating efficiency
  • Center shield plate between the left and right channels reduces crosstalk
  • Durable low-resonance polymer cartridge housing
  • Universal 1/2"-mount headshell for 4-pin turntable cartridges 
The VM540ML MicroLine stylus cartridge is the premier 500 Series model in Audio-Technica’s new 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 VM540ML 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. Includes mounting hardware.

WAAAAAYYYYY better than the AT440MLB
Product Rating

Product Review

Bought this (tentatively) to replace my brittle screechy cold and sterile AT440MLB cart. I was apprehensive at first because I didn’t want another 440 sounding cart. This cart has the highs rolled down a bit (thank God) and sounds very rich and full. I actually enjoy putting my records on again! I’m sure there are some YouTube clips you can check out but this sounds NOTHING like the 440MLB

Rock and Roll on a Budget

Product Review

Great Bright and lots of bass...not muddy at all Great Rock and Roll setup here. I had considered Ortofon blue and I bet some of you here are too. Although I cant speak first hand for the Blue I can for the 540VM and I wont be bothering with Ortofon anything. For me to step up from here would take $660 for a MC cartridge and $700 for the minimun deck to mount it on to exploit it...as it is I am using a AT1240LP and this $275 cartridge/Stylus with outstanding results coming from a AT95Ex. Well worth the money and did I mention the bass? Get it broke in and give it a chance...I'm glad I did albeit a bit wary to shell out this much money for a beginners Audiophile grade unit. Even the stylus is rated at 1000hrs which is really what your buying here. Outstanding value really. You could always do the 520VM with a bonded stylus and upgrade later stylus only...that would save ya $100 or so today and you would still be upgrading significantly from a AT95 which is a decent cartridge itself.

A sonic masterpiece

Product Review

This single addition to my Stereo system was an upgrade for my vinyl records, my turntable, my receiver and my speakers, an improvement all around. The best investment I could have made.
