78 RPM stylus for Innovative Technology ITUT-400 ITUT400 USB turntable
The 78 RPM stylus for the Innovative Technology ITUT-400 ITUT400 USB turntable features a 3.0 mil spherical diamond for accurate tracing of 78 RPM record grooves thus resulting in high fidelity and low noise reproduction of voice and music. The stylus is made in Japan.
To maintain the playback fidelity of your 78 record 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.
