When launched the Ortofon VMS-20 family was Ortofon's top Moving Magnet (MM) design. Specifically, it was the best yet instance of the Variable Magnetic Shunt (VMS) principle that Ortofon used in the MM designs. It came in spherical and elliptical variants that differed only in the mounted styli.

Spherical D-20S Stylus for Ortofon VMS-20S Mk I/II

The original Ortofon D-20S stylus was black. The recommended tracking force was relatively low at 0.75g - 1-5g. Originals are no longer available and the best replacement we have to offer is the red Tonar 6376-DS shown below. The recommended tracking force for this replacement is a bit higher at 1g - 2g. It will work in both mk I and mk II versions of the Ortofon VMS-20 cartridge body.

The cartridges of the Ortofon VMS families, i.e. F, FF, VMS, M, all used the same generator. However, the contemporary Ortofon styli all carry a shaped spigot that will only slide into the cartridge body intended for the particular stylus. The VMS-20 series used the same spigot shape for both mk I and mk II, and it is also compatible with the Ortofon VMS-10 mk II, VMS-30 mk II, F15 mk I, FF-15 mk I, M-20 (not super), and M-15 Super families of cartridges.
