      Comments about Audio-Technica AT92ECD Cartridge:

      The sound is good, better than the one that comes on the Denon DP300F, with good trackability. I found it with 1.2 g best. With 1.5g the cartridge sits to low and almost (sometimes if wobble or warp) touches the record, so I am not sure if this is ok with VT angle or with wearing sooner or in bad angle.

          • Q:

            I recently purchased a Pioneer PL-420 turntable that is need of a new cartridge. I just wanted to make sure that the AT92ECD would work ok. The current cartridge is a Pioneer PN-3MC (with a bent needle!!)
            Also, does it come with new mounting screws? There are mounting screws on the current cartridge, but I'm not sure they are the correct length or size to accommodate the Audio-Technica cartridge.

            Thank you.

              Thank you for your inquiry. I am have a hard time finding information about turntable and cartridge. I do know your cartridge is a moving coil, while our AT92ECD is a moving magnet. The photos of the cartridge appears to have an odd pin configuration. I suggest checking with LPgear.com. I'm quite certain they have a replacement stylus for your cartridge.

          • Q:

            I have an older turntable with a P-mount tonearm. It originally came with a VectorScan VS225EP vector-aligned cartridge. I would like to replace the cartridge with one of your universal/P-mount products. Are any of those products "vector-aligned" or is that characteristic just for the 1/2" audiophile models?

            Also, would there be a replacement styli that would fit my old cartridge?

            Thank you, Patrick

              A:

              The Technics SL-BD20D accepts a P-Mount cartridge. Therefore, the AT92ECD P-Mount cartridge will work with your Technics SL-BD20D.

          • Q:

            I recently acquired a Technics SL-V5 turntable and want to upgrade to the AT92ECD cartridge, but before I purchase I want to ensure that this cartridge is compatible. Specifically, is there a small hole in the base of the cartridge to accomodate the threaded screw and holds the cartridge in place? The hole is just above the 4-pin connector. I can't find a view of the cartridge that shows me if it's there.....

              A:

              Yes it does have the hole through the side to secure the cartridge in the tonearm. Our "Universal" mount model cartridges are really just p-mount cartridges with an adapter provided for mounting the cartridge to a half-inch headshell. You will not use the adapter.

          • Q:

            Will this replace an AT91E?

            • CUSTOMER CARE

              A:

              If you already have the AT91E, then the replacement stylus is the ATN3472BE. However, the ATN3472SE is a better stylus for just a few more dollars, and will work with your AT91E.

              Typically, only the stylus needs replacing, not typically the entire cartridge. However, you are looking for a replacement cartridge altogether, then the AT92ECD Universal Cartridge should work fine.

            • CUSTOMER CARE

              A:

              It will have to accommodate a standard half-inch mount type cartridge. Also make certain that you adhere to the recommended cartridge weight range for your tonearm. The AT92ECD weighs 7.5 grams when using the provided half-inch mount adapter. An arm height adjustment may be needed to insure the proper tracking angle is achieved. The angle is correct when the tonearm is parallel to the record. Please contact our Audio Solutions Department at audio-solutions@atus.com for written installation instructions for the cartridge.

              A:

              Yes it is, and it is slightly better then the TM3. The AT92ECD uses a finer tip. The TM3 used an 0.4 x 0.7 mil tip.
