General Electric VR II

Variable-Reluctance Cartridge

General Electric VR II


Practically all modern high fidelity amplifiers are equipped with a properly designed input connection for record changers or turntables using the General Electric VR variable reluctance cartridge.

No circuit change is required when substituting the new VR II cartridge for previous standard GE models.

When it is desired to use an amplifier having a flat high level input, or when replacing a crystal or ceramic type cartridge with the GE cartridge, an equalized preamplifier such as GE model A1-203 or UPX-003B is required.

Models 4G-040, 041, 061, 063, 050, 052 and 053.
