Stanton cartridges are made in the U.S.A. using only the finest quality materials, like jewelry grade diamonds. Stanton revamped their entire cartridge line with a new look and latest technology.
When tested head-to-head with our competitors' most popular needles, after only a few hours of back cue, you can actually hear the cue burn damage created by every cartridge... except Stanton's. Cue burn will kill the sound quality of your records, creating pops, clicks, and other sounds! Because Stanton uses polished jewelry grade diamonds our needles are known to lessen the effects of Cue burn and will preserve your records.
