        A:

        Thank you for your inquiry. No the needle is the orange plastic piece. It is included with the cartridge. However, If you would like to purchase an extra needle you will need the ATN120EB.

        A:

        Thank you for your inquiry. Your headshell does take a half inch mount, which is what this cartridge is. Please note this is a low compliance cartridge which is best suited for tone arm with high tone arm mass. I cannot find any information about the effective tone arm mass for the turntable. You may need to ask Roland.

    • Q:

      Hello, what is the average time of life of this cartridge/needle? I already got one and I'm about to use it but I thought it would be convenient to know that.

      Thanks!

        A:

        Thank you for your inquiry. The cartridge should last years. For the stylus it depends on several factors, especially the tracking force. You should get between 500 and 1000 hours on the stylus.

    • Q:

      Does the cartridge come pre-aligned in the headshell or does it need to be adjusted once installed?
