Not sure which stylus fits my sl-2500 cartridge

I keep hearing you need a proper stylus for a specific turntable or cartridge. I am new at this and learning and was wondering if anyone can help with finding the proper stylus/needle for my record player.

The proper stylus is the best you can afford. However the cartridge itself will only take certain types. To find which simply enter the cartridge make and model number into Google and see what comes up.
Actually most hi-fi buffs say it's the cartridge and stylus combined that gives the best sound, since many cartridges fit only one stylus it's often the cartridge that is the real choice. Most turntables will take a wide range of cartridges, so you pay your money and take your pick.

You need to dismount the cartridge, and find the make and model number printed on that. The manufacture may have used several different cartridges to control the manufacturing cost "what I mean is to purchase cheaper cartridges". You do need to know the correct make and model number from the cartridge, not the turntable.

Your amp must have a dedicated phono socket, otherwise you will need a magnetic cartridge pre-amp to hear it playing, via an aux socket on your amp.

The cartridge will have a make and number on it, put that into Google and it will find the stylus. If your cartridge is old or faulty. You can replace it with any other make you want. Most will fit the deck. With cartridges the more expensive it is the better the sound, generally unless it's just a well known brand or something just to be flashy!

Very low volume from my technics sl6 even when tuner is turn up to max. volume.


Hiya, first and foremost, is it plugged into the amps correct sockets? Turnatables have to in the PHONO (turntable) Any others , CD, AUX, MIC etc will not work. (sorry if that seems obvious, wasnt sure on the info provided)

If that is OK then check the stylus, probably requires a new stylus or/and cartridge.

Best of luck

New cartridge for Technics SL -BD22D


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
http://www.vinylengine.com/library/technics/sl-bd22d.shtml 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
