3) Stylus / Needle
If you already have 1 and 2, and you need to replace #3, then we would need to know what model #2 is?
You'll need what's called a STANDARD Mount cartridge, (aka Half-inch). In addition, that cartridge will need to be mounted to a Standard Mount Headshell.
Here is a collection of Standard Mount Cartridges that will fit this model.
Try to stay away from those all-in-one configurations that look like the Concorde airplane. Over time they will damage your tonearm due to a poor design flaw. Stick with a set up similar to the image posted. You can't go wrong, and you'll have more options.
