Great value, espcially for older LP's
Most LP's from the 60's - 80's were not of the best quality pressings or mastering. This cart will preserve your grooves and pull out all that is there.

If you have direct to disk or other LP's I would then recommend only for fidelity sake, a higher end cart. For my Pioneer PL L30 close and play this is more than adequate.

I have other turntables and have a variety of cartridges for audio restoration. For normal listening - this is A OK!

Great P-mount cartridge
P-mount cartridges are fairly rare nowadays. I was refurbishing an old Technics turntable, and at this price, there’s no reason to get anything less than this cartridge. (It cost only a couple of dollars more than the replacement stylus for the old cartridge.) Sound quality from the elliptical stylus is excellent, comparable to much more expensive cartridges I have on better turntables. This does NOT come with the 1/2” mount adapter, which I didn’t need anyway. Highly recommended if this is what you need, and WW Stereo has the best price around.

Will this cartridge fit a Dual 1218 Turntable?
A shopper on Sep 2, 2019
  It will not fit that table.
Does this cartridge work on a Technics 1710 turntable?
A shopper on Apr 25, 2019
  The Technics 1710 is an older unit that uses traditional cartridges which connect to the removable head shell with small nuts and bolts.The AT85EP is a P mount cartridge not compatible with tonearm and head shell.
Is this identical to the at92e?
A shopper on Dec 21, 2018
  The AT85 is a slightly better cartridge than the 92, with better frequency response
