To match the multiple applications of modern DJs the VNL Introduction Package includes 3 different styli with suspension types of varying feel and rigidity:

  • VNL I compliance, dynamic lateral 16 μm/m N - Flexible
  • VNL II compliance, dynamic lateral 15 μm/m N - Rigid
  • VNL III compliance, dynamic lateral 14 μm/m N - Firm

DJs can easily identify which stylus type best suits their individual DJ style and enables their absolute best performance capability.

The VNL features a spherical stylus which is perfect for tough groove handling. Furthermore, it reduces record wear when scratching and back-cueing to an absolute minimum.
