        Thanks for your inquiry. I would recommend the VM510CB as the replacement of the AT1001. Also, the VM520EB is consider an upgrade of the VM510CB, it has a elliptical stylus.

        A:

        Thanks for your inquiry. The AT90CD will mount on the Marantz's tonearm with the universal mount. However, we could not find sufficient information about the turntable to verify the compatibility of the turntable and the cartridge.

        Thank you for your inquiry. You will have to unmout the cartridge from the headshell and the model should be on top of the cartridge.

    • Q:

      replacing AT90 Cartridge

      Hi there, I need to replace the AT90 Cartridge on the similar one or (I would prefer) anything better quality. What model could you recommend me? I understand that you have 3 models and they all are P-Mount - I'm confused... Thanks in advance!

      • A:

        If you are looking to replace the stylus for the AT90CD, the stylus is the ATN3472C. Audio-Technica manufactures one P-Mount Cartridge, and seven Universal Mount Cartridges. If you are looking for a completely different cartridge that would be considered an upgrade to the AT90CD, I recommend going to www.audio-technica.com and reviewing the following:
        *BETTER: AT91ECD, and AT301EP
        *BEST: AT92ECD, and AT311EP

        * = Universal Mount

    • Q:

      I need to replace an AT90E cartridge

      I do not see this particular cartridge on your list. Do you know if the AT90CD will fit and work as a replacement?

      • A:

        The AT90CD will work, but it is a step down in performance compared to the AT90E. Consider the AT91ECD if you prefer a model with the same level of performance. a-t
