  • Q & A

    My turntable shows has an Audio - Technica MG-44J cartridge. It appears to be a P mount. Will the AT85EP cartridge work? The turntable is made by Sanyo


    If your current turntable is using a P Mount cartridge, then yes, the AT85EP will work for your tone arm.


    Is this a replacement for an AT201P cartridge?


    No, the body style is different. Please contact our Audio Solutions Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5000 or at for assistance with a where to find a discontinued ATN201P stylus.


    I have an older turntable that used an Audio Tech 3003 p-mount. Will this be a good replacement since the 3003 is no longer available?


    Yes, this will work with P Mounted tone arms.

    I have a Technics SL B200 turntable with an Ortofon TM Pro S needle, which Ortofon doesn't make anymore. Would this work as a replacement?

    Hello...I have an Audio Technica TR451U cartridge mounted in a Technics SL-DD22 turntable and I'm looking for a replacement. Would the Audio Technica AT85EP cartridge be the replacement and does it includes the stylus? Thanks
