Audio-Technica VM750SH Phono Cartridge
Audio-Technica VM750SHThe 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.
Audio-Technica VM Technology - Closer to the CutterheadA cutter head carves out the record grooves. The modulations in the groove are “analog” mechanical equivalents of the original audio signals. To “read” these modulations, Audio-Technica developed the patented Dual Magnet design which duplicates the structure of the cutter head. Instead of using a single, large magnet, the two magnets are arranged in the shape of a V. The two magnets are positioned precisely to match positions of the left and right channels in the stereo groove walls. Consequently, the VM design provides outstanding channel separation, extended frequency response and superb tracking. All models feature high-purity 6N-OFC (99.9999% pure oxygen free copper) wiring for maximum sonic purity and extraordinary resolution of fine musical detail.

I had heard wonderful things about the AT VM line and needed to replace my Rega Exact cartridge on my Rega P5 . The VM750SH was in my budget so I thought I wound give it a try. Patrick from Needle Doctor gave me some great advice on how to install it and reset the VTA on the Rega table. Well, I've been very happy with outcome. The cartridge is transparent, fast with excellent sound staging and great tracking. It has the warmth of MM with great details and never bright. Even though it is less expensive than the Rega Exact it is a significant upgrade.
Thanks again to Patrick for great technical advice and service
