The VM530EN/H Headshell and Cartridge Combo Kit from Audio-Technica includes the VM530EN elliptical nude dual moving magnet cartridge pre-mounted on the AT-HS10BK universal 1/2"-mount headshell. The VM530EN features dual magnets that are positioned to match left and right channels in the stereo record groove and improve channel separation, as well as extending the frequency response. Additionally, the cartridge employs an elliptical nude stylus that reduces the execution mass of the vibration system, enabling fuller frequency reproduction and less tracking distortion than a bonded stylus.
The lightweight AT-HS10BK is a universal 1/2"-mount headshell designed for 4-pin turntable cartridges. The die-cast aluminum body is designed to minimize vibration and provides a finger-lift at the front position to enable precise placement of the stylus onto the record. The gold-plated lead wires offer lossless signal transmission. The headshell ships with mounting hardware.
