        Comments about Audio-Technica AT311EP Cartridge:

        This cartridge can be purchased online for around $30 and provides an excellent alternative to much more expensive cartridges for someone who would like to hear all of the music that is available while playing vinyl records. I highly recommend this cartridge to someone who is either just 'getting into' vinyl or listening on a budget.

            A:

            Thank you for your inquiry. From what I can see in online photos of this turntable it appears to have a P mount table cartridge. If that is correct, yes the cartridge will work.

        • Q:

          Have brought my old Kenwood KD-54R back into service with excellent results. The cartridge is a HiTec 103, and back in the day I successfully replaced the stylus several times with an AT 213-D6C, which was compatible with AT3472P. Now I'm considering replacing the cartridge with either an AT 3482P or an AT 311EP. Do you see any issues?

          Thanks, WN

        • Q:

          The instructions that came with my AT311EP say "Install cartridge as described above for the the 1/2" mount models."

          This is not described above, below or in-between. It is not described in the instructions for the turntable. It is not hinted at in any diagram.

          How is this cartridge to be installed into the headshell that came with the Audio-Technica AT-LP1240?

            A:

            The instructions provided with the AT311EP should have had a small diagram of the cartridge and head shell saying which colored cable connects to which pin. If you are looking at the back of the cartridge (with the needle facing the ground) your pins would be as follows:
            Top Left - White
            Top Right - Red
            Bottom Left - Blue
            Bottom Right - Green

            A:

            The AT311EP will work as a replacement for the AT216EP.

            However, if you just need a replacement stylus, please email audio-solutions@atus.com for additional information.

        • Q:

          Is the AT311EP cartridge compatible with a (1/2" mount) tonearm that has an effective mass of 22g (assuming a 6g cartridge) in consideration of cartridge compliance?
          Asked on 12/30/2015 by TTnoob from OH

          1 answer

          • CUSTOMER CARE

            A:

            Yes, but I would only recommend the AT311EP if your tonearm has adjustable height. It will be important to keep the arm level as this is already a low-riding cartridge. Your medium mass arm will cause it to ride lower than a lower mass arm would. Due to the shape of the cartridge body, it is possible for it to bottom out on the record if there is a severe enough warp and the cartridge is not sitting level.
