Ratings & Reviews
I bought this for my daughter's first record player. It's just a Goodwill find Numark TT that needed a stylus. So I went with name brand and price. Running it through a Technics sa200 and Infinity rs125 speakers, I was absolutely floored at how will it all sounds. I mean, we all pour so much effort into researching the best products within our price ranges obsessively. So when I did this little build for my daughter and threw on a couple records to sample, I immediately concluded that less truly is more, in many cases. This $35 cartridge does the work of some much heavier hitters out there. If budget is your big concern, I wouldn't hesitate buying one of these, at least for temporary until a further upgrade.
