    Nice and Easy


    Good sound easy set up for Pioneer PL670

    Great sound quality for the price!


    I've owned a couple of these cartridges over the years and they are great! Very good sound quality for a decent price! Good deep bass on drums and bass and clear tone on vocals,keyboards,piano etc.. very easy to install. I own a Teac player semi auto and a fully auto Pioneer pl-670 and it sounds great on both turntables..Should work with most p mount tables as I believe the cartridges are universal. for $20-$30(depending on where you purchase it) You can't go wrong with this cartridge!



    Tremendous Value


    After getting back into vinyl, and having received an AT120LP USB for Christmas, I decided to dig out my college Technics belt driven turntable. It took the standard P-Mount (T4P) mount. As the stylus was gone, and rather than trying to locate a replacement one, I went with this "all in one" low cost solution. It sounds amazing. From what I have read, the cantilever on the included stylus is carbon fiber construction. And this supposedly helps to minimize pops and ticks. It really does seem to work well, as the "older" vinyl I have played has very little audible noise. It is so nice to have this table up and running again, and I would recommend this cartridge to anyone with a P Mount table.

  • Q & A

    Will this work with my sansui P-L45 turntable which has a SN-P313 p mount cartridge?


    Thank you for your inquiry. This site is designed to answer questions for the Americas. Please see the below link to find the Audio-Technica office responsible for your part of the globe. They will be happy to help.


    How can I purchase one? Do you deliver?


    You may purchase from an Authorized Audio-Technica Dealer.


    hi, I own a Technics SL-QD33, would this be a good fit for it, what's the difference with the AT85EP?


    Thank you for your inquiry. Yes this cartridge is compatible with your turntable. The AT85EP has an elliptical stylus tip and the AT3482P has a conical tip. You can read more about the differences between styli shapes here:


    Well this work on an Onkyo CP-1036A?


    Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately we were unable to find sufficient information about your turntable, but if it uses p-mount or plug-in type cartridges then yes this would work.


    Will this work on a Technics SL-D30 turntable?


    Thank you for your inquiry. Yes this cartridge would work on your turntable.


    Will this replace the AT3003 on my Sansui P-D30 turntable?


    The AT3003 was a Universal mount cartridge. The AT3482H/U would be a suitable replacement.


    Will this work with my Marantz TT-151 turntable? If not what would you recommend?


    Thank you for your inquiry. No, I believe your turntable takes a 1/2 mount. Something like an AT95E may work.


    What cartridge would you recommend me for sl-j2 technics turntable?


    Thank you for your inquiry. The AT3482P or the AT85EP should be fine.


    is this a MM or MC cartridge?


    The AT3482P is a moving magnet cartridge. (MM)


    I have a P-Mount Audio-Technica that is blue with the number 1001. This was for a Sanyo turntable. Do you have a product for this? the turntable is about 35 years old. Can you help? Thanks
