The VMS principle
A conventional magnetic cartridge normally uses a solid magnet, either permanent or induced moving close to a set of coils. In Ortofon’s patented Variable Magnetic Shunt (VMS) design, the stylus cantilever is attached to a very light tubular armature which moves between the coils in the field of a miniature ring magnet.
