    Audio-Technica Consumer VM520EB reviews

    VM520EB Dual Moving Magnet Elliptical Stylus Cartridge is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice cartridge for the price I have a vintage Pioneer turntable so I didn't want to spend on a cartridge more than what the turntable is worth. The turntable came with an original Pioneer MC5 cartridge, but knowing that it is hard to find a stylus replacement, I decide to replace the cartridge. I tried first the AT 95E, I wasn't impressed, the pioneer cartridge sound was more clear and balanced. A friend let me tried his Shure M97xe, I wasn't impressed either. Then, I decided to go for the VM 520EB. What a difference, the clarity and balance of sound was impressive. Great cartridge for the value.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too much high end emphasis Too much emphasis on the mid to high frequencies compared to my other phono pickups (Grado & Shure). Should have returned it but outside the 30 day window for returns. Not at good match for my at-lp120usb or SL-1500MK2. Purchase through Amazon head shell & cartridge combo. BTW, have lower the treble way down to be listenable
