  • Overview

    The VM510CB conical stylus cartridge is the entry-level 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 VM510CB 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 0.6 mil conical bonded stylus tracks the center of the record groove for reliable performance and excellent fidelity. Includes mounting hardware.

    Will this cartridge work with the AT-LP3BK Turntable? What is the tracking to be set at if so?

    Rick

    Is this item compatible with Audio Technica AT-LP60-USB?

    Morgion

    Thank you for your inquiry. No this is not compatible. The cartridge on our AT-LP60 turntables is not removable, and the only replacement stylus available is the ATN3600L: https://www.audio-technica.com/cms/styli/c26ee3d85cff3f36/index.html
