        Comments about Audio-Technica CN5625AL Cartridge:

        I purchased this cartridge to install on my Luxman PD-284 turntable that I found at a thrift store. Clean sound, not bright like some cartridges. Channel separation is a bit shy but for the price you get a very decent cartridge. Great cartridge for someone on a budget but want good entry level quality.

            For the low price, this is an excellent quality cartridge. Using the same turntable and tonearm to compare, the CN5625AL has comparable quality to my AKG P15.

                A:

                Thank you for your inquiry. I would not use the CN5625AL on this turntable. This cartridge is rated as a Low compliance cartridge. At 17.6 gr the effective tone arm mass of your turntable is rated as a medium mass tone arm, so I would suggest a medium compliance cartridge such as the AT95E.

            • Q:

              I have a 30-year old Denon turntable with a Shure type V cartridge mounted on the tonearm using two screws on the top of the cartridge. I presume that this is a standard mount tonearm. Can I use this cartridge to replace the existing Shure cartridge?

            • Q:

              Would this cartridge and stylus be a good, suitable replacement for an Audio-Technica cartridge model # TC250EP?

                A:

                It appears the TC250EP is a P-Mount cartridge while the CN5625AL is a standard 1/2" mounted cartridge. Depending on what you turntable will allow, this may or may not work.

                Please contact our Audio Solutions Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5000 or at audio-solutions@atus.com for additional assistance with this. Let us know what turntable you have and we can further investigate which cartridge will be a suitable replacement.

                A:

                Thank you for your inquiry. I believe the PL-600 is a half inch mount head shell. If so, this cartridge will work.

                A:

                There is a difference between the ATN3600L and the ATN5625AL. One major difference is the tracking force; the ATN5625AL tracks at 1.5-3.0 grams, and the ATN3600L tracks at 3 - 5.5g.

            • Q:

              I have a Sony ps-lx46p with exact same cartridge and stylus in every way, but it uses one screw and it doesn't have that black piece of plastic on top. would be possible to remove that and and screw it in? My old cartridge only plays the right channel so I need a new one and I don't want to buy a lower quality, off brand cartridge when I can buy a much higher quality one form y'all.Even if it can just be removed.Please get back to me. Thanks for our time.

                A:

                It appears that your cartridge is held in place with one screw in the top of it. Our cartridges are not designed this way. If you are interested in replacing the stylus (needle) only, not the entire cartridge, it looks as though our ATN3600L or ATN5625AL styli will fit it. The Sony model number for the stylus only is ND-155G.
