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!

Need a new stylus for my turntable SONY PS-LX250H and cannot seemed to find a new one. where can I get a new one at.


Assuming it is the original ATN-3600 cartridge, a simple web search for "sony ps-lx250h replacement stylus" or "atn3600 stylus" locates some.

If the cartridge is something different you should search for that model's stylus, not one for the TT itself.

I've just bought a used Ion Audio TTUSB05 turnatable, I ve plugged it into my amp and it sounds terrible. There is a lot of noise before the needle hits the vinyl, presumably it needs earthing, when...


It will need earthing if you are getting hum. As it is used I would replace the entire cartridge and stylus with the best you can afford. Make certain you wire it up right. A good test is with the cartridge removed and your amp on, is to touch each wire (one at a time) with your finger. You should hear a buzz on two wires (one left one right) and nothing on the other two wires (earths). This will help you get the new one connected right.
