  • Q & A

    I have an ATLP240 and I want to change the cartridge and I was wondering if this one would be compatible. Thanks


    Yes it is.


    I have one one of those cheap Numark TTUSB, will this work with it?


    Thank you for your inquiry. It appears that it would.


    Is it compatible with the Pioneer PLX 500?


    Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, it is.


    Hello, I have an AT-PL120 direct drive professional turntable. (I don't see anything about it being "USB" which is fine for our use) . Can you tell me: will the "AT95E/HSB Headshell/Cartridge Combo kit be able to fit into the tonearm in a nice, standard way (by that I mean gently inserting and turning a sort of screw to secure and tighten in place). I do need something "rugged" and easy -- it's sitting in a music library... :) Any other cost-effective suggestion would help, too. many thanks! -- Holly Mockovak


    Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, this will work with this turntable.


    I have a Denon DP30L turntable - 4 pin. Will this cartridge (AT95E) and/or headshell (AT95EHSB work for me ?? Thanks !!


    Thank you for your inquiry. The AT95E should work with this, although not the headshell because I believe your tonearm is straight.


    Does the cartridge come already mounted to the headshell?


    This product is the AT95E mounted to the AT-HS10BK headshell.


    I have an at-lp120 USB. What cartridge do I need?


    The AT95E Cartridge is provided with the turntable. Any of our half-inch mount Moving Magnet (MM) type cartridges is compatible with the turntable.


    I have a Yamaha P-550 turntable. It has a half inch mount ans is 4 pin. Will this Combo unit work?
