  • Q & A

    Is the AT90 an MM or MC cartridge?


    The AT90CD is a moving magnet cartridge.


    I have a Technics SL-D35 turntable with an Audio Technica TC 150 EP cartridge. Is this a P mount set up? If yes, is the AT90CD cartridge a direct replacement?


    Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, this is a P mount and the AT90CD would work.


    I have an AT-PL50 turntable and need a replacement stylus. Is there one available for this discontinued product? If so, need product #.


    Use only the ATN3600L Replacement Stylus


    Thank you for your inquiry. The model number of the replacement stylus for your PL50 is the ATN3600L stylus:


    what is the tracking weight recommended for the AT-90 cartridge


    The recommended tracking force is 1.0-1.5 grams.


    Does Audio-Technica AT90CD come with the tiny screw you need to install it to a P-mount tonearm?


    Yes, it does.


    will this work on a Technics SL-QD35 turntable?


    Thank you for your inquiry. Yes the AT90CD is compatible with your turntable.


    Would the AT90CD be compatible with a Gemini XL-120?


    Thanks for your inquiry. The AT90CD is compatible with the Gemini XL-120.

    I have a Pioneer PL-15DII turntable and it has a Audio-technica cartridge that needs replaced. The one on there now says Audio-technica 1001...what would replace that?


    Thanks for your inquiry. I would recommend the VM510CB as the replacement of the AT1001. Also, the VM520EB is consider an upgrade of the VM510CB, it has a elliptical stylus.

    Is this cartridge compatible with a Marantz 6150 turntable?


    Thanks for your inquiry. The AT90CD will mount on the Marantz's tonearm with the universal mount. However, we could not find sufficient information about the turntable to verify the compatibility of the turntable and the cartridge.

    Hi. I have on my technics sl-d202 a cartridge that looks exactly like this one or at92ecd or at300p or ar311ep... How do i know wich one? Can't find anything on it... Thanks in advance.


    Thank you for your inquiry. You will have to unmout the cartridge from the headshell and the model should be on top of the cartridge.
