-Musical excellence with a great balance of dynamics, natural harmonics and detail retrieval.

One of the finest cartridges ever made for the money and still in current US production, the Audio-Technica AT-OC9ML/II phono cartridge is also one of the most desirable cartridges in the world. Its musical excellence defies competition and transcends time. Its timeless quality of musical eloquence and over achievement make it a classic to be cherished and enjoyed for years and decades.

" The AT-OC9ML/II sets a standard that will be hard for any cartridge, moving magnet or moving coil, to match at its price."

At LP TUNES's special sale price which is less than half of retail it is an absolute steal! It is manufactured extremely well and is very reliable. Its performance is both world class and top class.

Audio-Technica replacement ATN-70 stylus
Scott Hutchison (Arlington, US)
Sounds great!

I'm a pretty new record collector. To get started, I purchased a vintage Sony PS-LX2 at the thrift store and replaced it's original stylus with this. Then I set the counterweight, the tracking force and made sure the cartridge was aligned - low and behold - great sounding Music!

I was having a problem finding a drive belt for my turntable. A friend recommended LP Tunes. Within a week I had my drive belt, installed it, and my turntable is working like new again! So glad I took his advice!

Toshiba N-290D N290D stylus

Got this to replace the stylus on my 44 year old Pioneer turntable. I am very happy, and excited about the noticable improvement in sound quality. We have been venturing back into vinyl, and wanted to utilize my old turntable from back in the day. This simple stylus replacement made that feasible!
