    Buy AT95e instead

      Comments about Audio-Technica CN5625AL Cartridge:

      Horrible sound quality. For just a few dollars more you can have the budget superstar of cheapo cartridges-the AT95e...or a Grado. This is a waste of money and time. Anyone that thinks this sounds good, must not have very discerning ears or nothing else to compare it to.

          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:

                  You may use with a standard half inch mounted tone arm. You may check with your turntable specs to verify their tone arm will accommodate.

                  We have not been able to confirm what type of mount the C-320M Cartridge made by Toshiba is. If is a standard half-inch type mount the CN5625AL Cartridge should work in it's place.

                Can I replace the stylus of an AT91 cartridge by installing an AT95 stylus in the original cartridge body? If I could do that, would I also need to adjust the tracking weight?

                  Thank you for your inquiry. It is hard to find any technical information on this, although I did find someone using an AT100E cartridge. The CN5625AL may work, but I cant find any information other than marketing stuff about the turntable.

                Is this cartridge and stylus appropriate for an old Technics SL-D2 Direct Drive turntable? Is there one that is better for Not a Lot more money? Does the stylus come with the cartridge? Thank You!

                  A:

                  Thank you for your inquiry. This cartridge will work, but is probably not the best route to go. Your turntable has a medium tonearm mass which is best suited with a medium compliance cartridge. The CN5625AL is a low compliance cartridge. A better choice would be the AT100E, although that is a more expensive cartridge.
