Audiophile cartridges: easy to use and assemble
Choosing a cartridge is not all that easy. You not only need to consider the design, the mounting style is also important. Nowadays, the most widespread is the 1/2 inch standard mount. The cartridge is either screwed onto a headshell or secured directly to the tonearm. The colour-coded tonearm wires are easy to connect, even for the less technical-minded audiophiles out there! T4P P-mount cartridges were common in the old days, and are currently used with linear tracking arms or with entry level turntables. These cartridges are very easy to use, as they just plug directly into the tonearm. If you're not sure which model you need for your turntable, feel free to send us an e-mail.
