The prestige gold might be a little bit of overkill for this turntable meaning the turntable is middle of the road and the cartridge is hi-end.

To get a closer match for your TT try a yahoo search for "AT3482P-DE" (with the quotes) and the result will be the closest match to what this turntable is designed for. also you can find your TT's owner manual here but you will have to register to download the free manual. in that manual you will find the shape of the drawings for the cartridge is the same. both made by audio technica

I've been given a Technics sl-bd22d turntable, an Arcam amplifier and a Cambridge 551P pre amplifier. How do I connect them all together?

Depends what type of sockets these have. If the Pre-Amp has a RCA phono sockets you just need some RCA leads. I don't know if the Arcam Amp works with any pre-amp. But if it does, it's likely to have the same type sockets as the others. So you just buy another two RCA leads and connect it up.

I need to to hook up my turntable to my bose system

As long as the Bose has a spare audio socket you can do it. You however will need a device called a "Magnetic Cartridge Preamp". Otherwise all you will hear is the sound at a very low level.

Is a Vestax VR-3S cartridge compatible with a Technics 1200 turntable?

I understand the Vestax VR-3S cartridge is moving magnet (magnetic). Provided it is wired correctly there should be no problems. Any magnetic cartridge will be compatible.
