Needles, styli, cartridges, pick-ups... it has a variety of names, but every turntable has something that sits in the groove and ‘reads’ the undulations in the groove wall of the record. The Turntable Cartridge then send the signal down the wires to the amplifier and into the speaker.
The cartridge has a tricky job because it has to turn a mechanical movement into an electrical signal, which is why a high-quality cartridge is never overlooked by a true audiophile. It makes sense to spend as much as you can afford on the Turntable Cartridge, which is an inherent part of the turntable set-up.
Vinyl enthusiasts would agree that replacing the Turntable Cartridge with a higher quality one is one of the easiest ways to drastically improve the sound quality of your turntable in one upgrade.
When it comes to playback quality, the choice of the Turntable Cartridge is just as critical to the set up as the amp, loudspeakers and the deck itself.
