    I have a AT-LP120 Turntable with an ATP-2 Cart. How often should the stylus be replaced (I understand it depends on several factors - condition of records, pressure) but on average how many hours should it last or how do I know it needs to be replaced before it ruins a record. I'm not having issues just wanted to know what to look for.


    The stylus should be changed roughly between 400-1000 hours. It is recommended to change the stylus when you hear a degradation of the higher frequencies.

    The ATP-2XN (cartridge for the ATP-N2) has a recommended tracking force of 3-5 grams. The anti-skate and heights all depend on your turntable and tone arm.
