    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

    Bob

    It appears your listed turntable allows for P Mounted cartridges and the AT85EP would be a comparable replacement.

    Brent

    bought a at85ep that replaces the original st-66d, but cannot adjust speed down to where it sounds normal (always to fast). What am I doing wrong or does that replace the old st-66dl

    Gary

    A speed issue would be with the turntable and not within the cartridge. I recommend contacting the turntable manufacturer.

    Brent

    Is the AT85EP the best replacement fore the AT311EP cartridge?

    i have a audio-technica VS215EP pmount cartridge that needs replacement. it goes to a Technics SL-BD2 turntable.. what cartridge would you rec.? thanks

    scott

    Thank you for your inquiry. If your turntable uses a p-mount cartridge, then any of our p-mount models will be compatible with your turntable. Since your previous cartridge/stylus was elliptical, the closest current model would be the AT85EP.
