Audio Technica's VM 530 EN MM cartridge is partly derived from the innovations and technology developed on the manufacturer's high-end models, like Audio Technica's VM 740 ML cartridge. Though a level of compromise had to be reached to make its price more competitive.

Audio Technica VM 530 EN - Cartridge

Audio Technica VM 530 E: VM Technology

It features the generator of Audio Technica's VM 520 EB MM cartridge.

It features dual magnets that use the 'VM' technology. Instead of using one large magnet, the two magnets are arranged in a 'V'.

They are accurately positioned according to the positions of the left and right channels.

The VM design of this AudioTechnica phono cartridge makes for better channel separation and frequency response.

Para-toroidal coils with high purity PCOCC copper conductors improve the efficiency of the generator and offer great linearity.

A shielding plate has been added between the two coils, hence reducing crosstalk between the channels.

Audio Technica VM 530 E: Needle

Audio Technica's VM 530 EN cartridge features a high-end elliptical stylus.

It is light, thus delivering a more vibrant playback and better harmonic reproduction.

It is mounted embedded (not bonded) into a pure aluminium cantilever.

Moreover, the tilting stylus guard embedded in the Audio Technica VM530 cartridge is very practical.

Audio Technica VM 530 E: Body

The cartridge structure is made of a low resonance polymer. This minimises vibration for more precise and clearer playback.

The connectors of this AudioTechnica VM530 are gold-plated.

Its weight, tracking force and compliance make it compatible with most tonearms.

Audio Technica VM 530 E: Listening and test review

This VM 530 EN has the distinctive musicality and quality of Audio Technica cartridges.

Playback is vibrant and precise! The definition is excellent with a wide frequency response across the spectrum.

It favours transparency and clarity. It picks up every detail from the groove, which is unusual for a phono cartridge in this range.

This is a great moving magnet cartridge (MM) and a good alternative to OrtofonGrado and Goldring cartridges.

Bon j'avous Frank m'avait conseillé la VM520EB pour faire une upgrade de ma platine AT LP5 qui avais ça cellule d'orine VM95EX. mais j'ai choisi cette VM530EN pour le diamant eliptique nude et le petit pinceau. super packaging. dommage l n'y a pas les cable.
Je ne met que 4 etoile car les ecrous fournis avec ne passe pas sur le porte celle (il faut les limer) du coup j'ai repris les écrous lisse d'origine.
Bref un peut galére à monter.
pour l'instant je l'utilise avec le préampli de la platine c'est deja le jour et la nuit vraiment la difference meme sans rodage.
On vera dans le temps si je passe sur un diamant ML ou non. mais la prochaine upgrade sera le préampli je pense prendre le Mofi phonostage tjrs sur les conseil de Franck et merci pour sont temps



je viens juste de la mettre sur ma platine AT lp5 en remplacement pour une meilleure écoute. Grosse différence par rapport à l'origine, bref c'est excellent. quel son....maintenant.
