  • Overview

    The VM750SH Shibata stylus cartridge is a premier 700 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 VM750SH 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 Shibata stylus provides greater surface contact with the record groove than an elliptical stylus does, resulting in the pickup of ultra-high frequencies with less groove stress and distortion. Includes mounting hardware.

  • Q & A

    I have a Thorens TD 320 with TP 90 tonarm (medio heavy 17 gram) - will this pick up suites the medio heavy tonarm on this player?


    You may contact your local Audio-Technica offices for further assistance.


    I have an Pioneer PL 550 - will this pick up suites the s- shaped heavy tonarm on this player. What other AT pick ups will do the thing with this player if this do not? Recomondations on pick ups to that player would be lovely.....


    You may contact Audio-Technica Europe for further assistance.


    Can the VM750SH be used to upgrade the cartridge found on the AT-LP120 Turntable?


    Yes it can.


    Will this play an old CD-4 quad record? It has the Shibata stylus but the frequency response is only 27000 hz. The CD-4 carrier is at 30,000 hz. Also the tracking force seems high. Will it damage the CD-4 records?


    Thank you for your inquiry. I do not believe this would work.


    Can the VM750SH be used to upgrade the AT95EX cartridge found on the AT-LP5 Turntable?

    AT-LP5 User

    Yes, that would be a very nice pairing.

    Thanks for your inquiry. Yes they are available on our website or any authorized dealers.
