  • Overview

    The VM760SLC special line contact stylus cartridge is the flagship 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 VM760SLC 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 ultra-lightweight special line contact stylus allows it to trace the record groove with incredible accuracy and minimum abrasion, resulting in nuanced audio reproduction, low distortion and low record wear. Includes mounting hardware.

    • Q:

      Hi. Is the special line contact stylus better than microline stylus? Is it has a smaller side radius than microline 2.5 x 75 um? Thanks.

        A:

        Thanks for you inquiry. Generally the MicroLine is better of all, it almost exactly duplicates the shape of the cutting stylus used to produce the original master disc. It fits into the groove better and can reproduce the high frequencies better.

    • Q:

      What is the difference between this cartridge and the AT150MLX that I own. It appears the only difference is cantilever material (tapered aluminum on this cartridge vs. gold plated boron on the AT150MLX). Are there any other differences besides that? If I were to put the replacement stylus for a VM760SLC on my AT150MLX, would that make it identical to a new VM760SLC?

        Thank you for your inquiry. This stylus would probably be a one or two step upgrade on this cartridge.

    • Q:

      Why was this model discontinued:Audio-Technica AT150MLX Dual Moving Magnet Cartridge and why can't I find
      the AT 150 ANV in the United States only through a web site called LP GEAR selling for $1,500 and not on your site?
      Is this model the VMC considered superior to the models mentioned?

      Thank you.
