Audio Technica VM 670 SP mono : Needle
Its conical needle is precision-bonded to an aluminium cantilever.
The conical stylus of the Audio Technica VM 670 SP mono is cut with a wide curvature radius to 3 thousandths. It is therefore fully compatible with 78 RPM recordings from various generations.
Its profile is perfectly designed for monophic grooves.
Its tilting stylus guard embedded in the Audio Technica VM 670 SP mono cartridge is very practical.
Audio Technica VM 670 SP mono Motor and magnets
The motor features dual magnets that use the 'VM' technology.
Para-toroidal coils with high purity PCOCC copper conductors improve the efficiency of the generator and offer great linearity.

Audio Technica VM 670 SP mono: Listening and test review
Though Audio Technica's VM 670 cartridge is monophonic, we recommend connecting both channels (left and right) to reduce the noise.
The sound reproduction is amazingly vibrant and clear. Franck
