78 RPM STYLUS FOR CROSLEY CR-69 CR 69 CR69 TURNTABLE

The Crosley CR-69 CR 69 CR69 turntable was fitted with a stylus which features a 3.0 mil polished diamond for long playing life and correct tracing of 78 RPM wide grooves. A photo of the stylus replacement is supplied above. The color of the stylus varies. Please verify and use this as a guide only since the cartridge and stylus may have been changed through the years.

To maintain the playback fidelity of your 78 records you really need to use a stylus designed for 78 RPM records. A very common misconception is that you can use a LP stylus for playing 78 records. This is one quick and sure way to damage the 78 record grooves. Moreover, the LP stylus is much narrower than the 78 record groove hence the tip will slide to the bottom of the groove where debris has collected for many decades. This results in extraordinarily high surface noise and inferior reproduction.

If the stylus above differs from what you have, then it means you no longer have the fitted cartridge. For us to assist you further, we need the cartridge brand and model number. This info is usually inscribed on the cartridge and stylus.

Have been listening to the stylus for two hours and am delighted with the results - significant gains in clarity and transparency.

Stanton 681eee Vivid Line

I have been using this on my Stanton 680 cartridge with great success. Very smooth and articulate. This stylus is much better than the generic .2 x.7 stylus I was using. Alignment was slightly difficult but a small bubble level helped. Why Stanton/Pickering made a cartridge body with thin metal screw mounts is a puzzle. You have to make sure the cartridge is perpendicular to the record surface. Over the years I have seen some cartridges with a tilt between the body and mount. I am sure the LPTunes Shibata stylus for the Stanton 680/681 would sound better, but for my use the Vivid Line stylus is more than adequate
