View Full Version : Turntable help.....
01-03-2003, 10:57 AM
Several years I let my dad use my old turntable to listen to some of his old Dixieland Jazz LPs. I started replacing my entire LP collection in the 80s with CDs (I will never totally go back to vinyl...I really prefer digital especially with SACD - but that is another topic). I bought it in 1972 and and it still operates very well. I need to get him a new cartridge. Does anyone know where the best place to look for one is? It is a Miracord 50HII with an Elac cartridge and tonearm. Thanks for any help.

There are still a few places that sell cartridges. I think Crutchfield has a few; J and R Music has some; do a general search with Google.
I've looked at cartridges quite a bit over the past year.. if J and R has one you can use, they seem to have the best prices. There are also specialy shops that you'll find with an internet search, but the prices are high.

there's a place called the needle doctor in minneapolis that advertises in Sound & Vision, etc. they have a website, don't know address, but should be found by googling.

Needle doctor is online...has about 50 or so manufacturers of needles, you should be able to find what you need there. I even found my Bang and Olfsen there.

I think acousticsounds.com and amusicdirect.com have some.

Thanks for the info guys. I've already called the Needle Doctor and it may be a tough job to locate a replacement. I've got to send them a picture as it is an unusual piece. It's a start. I may have to figure how to rig a "universal" cartridge.

Try Lyle Cartridge on New York's, Long Island as well.
