78 RPM replacement for Audio-Technica ATP-N2 ATPN2 record player needle stylus
The 78 RPM replacement for the Audio-Technica ATP-N2 ATP N2 needle stylus is used with the Audio-Technica ATP-1, ATP-2, ATP-3 Professional Series cartridges and the Audio-Technica Compass ATX1, ATX3E, ATX5E cartridge series. The stylus features a 3.0 mil polished diamond designed specifically for the correct tracing of the wide grooves of 78 RPM records. It results in minimal groove wear and accurate reproduction of voice and music.
Onecommon end-user mistake is that an standard LP stylus can be correctlly used for playing 78 RPM records. This is one quick and sure way to damage the 78 RPM record grooves. To maintain the playback fidelity of your 78 record, you really need to use a stylus designed for 78 RPM records. Otherwise with just a single playing, you could ruin the fidelity of the record grooves. Also, the LP stylus is much narrower than the 78 RPM record groove thus the tip slides to the bottom of the groove where debris has collected for many decades. This results in extraordinarily high-surface noise.
