  • Q & A

    Will this fit my technics quartz SL-QD33 ? Thanks!


    It appears your listed turntable is a P Mount tone arm and if that is the case, you may use the AT81CP.


    will the DR 300E be replaced by this AT81CP or what will


    Thank you for your inquiry. The DR300E had an elliptical stylus the AT81CP has a conical tip. Both are P mount cartridges.
