You can get replacement cartridges --> HERE and also HERE

Stylus are available as well, but since it's that old, and for around $30, may as well just replace the cartridge and stylus.

The usual disclaimers apply... YMMV, JMHO, etc.. smile.gif

I can't understand why anybody would like listening to the crackles and pops. That said, if the record is in good condition, vinyl does sound very nice.

It really isn't a matter of 'liking' them, that's how it was then. I guess it's a matter of how old one is. :)

 

Even the cleanest, most pristine vinyl will have some. But the analog sound is unmistakeable.

I've basically only had 2 TT in my life: a Technics 1200 (bought in the 1970's) which was replaced by a Bang & Olufsen TX2 (in the 1980's). The real epiphany came when I upgraded the Technics cartridge to a Grado G1+!! I'm on my second MMC-3 cartridge (B&O), but I figure I'll need to replace the belt eventually.

Yamaha DSP-A1 Integrated Amp
(4) Polk Monitor 10B's w/SoniCaps and Mills resistors (R/L F/R)
(2) Polk Monitor 4's w/peerless tweets (dual centers)

Nakamichi Cassette Deck 1
Pioneer CLD-99 Elite LD
Samsung BD-P2550 Blu-Ray/DVD
Princeton AF3.0HD Monitor

My first table was an AR EB-101 that I purchased from George Merrill when he owned a small shop, Underground Sound, in Memphis. It is my only table, and i still play it weekly. It has a new motor and has new belts. I am still using the Audio Technics AT30 moving coil cartridge that my Dad, also in the business, gave me. RIP Dad.
