The Pioneer PL-X9 PL X9 PLX9 turntable was fitted with a Pioneer PC-41MC PC41MC phono cartridge and a Pioneer PN-41MC PN41MC needle stylus, which is no longer available. As a substitute, we offer the Pioneer PN-31MC PN31MC needle stylus. 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.
