Audio-Technica AT95E + Headshell/Cartridge Plug~n~Spin Combo Kit - STRAIGHT Arm

The AT95E Straight Arm Plug-n-spin Kit is a well regarded and versatile solution for your empty straight type tonearm.  You will receive a complete solution that is ready to fit most turntables with what is commonly known as a 'Straight-Japanese' tonearm.  This type of tonearm is usually found in Japanese Imports like JVC, Sansui, & Kenwood. As pictured above this type of straight tonearm is not linear tracking but instead pivots from the gimble base at the right rear corner of the deck.  The tonearm socket must be .320 inches in diameter, (see pictures) have four pins in the socket, and a single TOP mounted set screw that secures the head shell in the tonearm socket.  The cartridge is made by Audio Technica & the headshell is a custom made for BLISS Needles. The cartridge and headshell come to you Pre-assembled, tested and aligned in USA. The needle depends on what you choose above. 


After receiving your new Plug~n~Spin kit, in most cases all you have to do is plug it into the tonearm, tighten down the headshell thumbscrew and adjust the tracking.

How do I adjust tracking pressure and anti skate?
If you are lucky enough to have these two adjustments, move tracking force counter weight until the needle hovers perfectly balanced above the record. Now rotate the dial with numbers (not the weight itself) to zero. (this is zero grams pressure on record) then rotate weight AND numbers together to the recommended tracking pressure for your needle.  Then rotate anti skate to have a setting of equal value. Basically you want the least amount of needle pressure pushing down on the record as possible without it skipping or sounding bad. That will give you the longest life from your needle and records.

NOTE: Anti skate is adjusting side to side pressure WITHIN GROOVE of record. Tracking pressure is how hard the needle is pushing down inside the groove.


If your tonearm has a height-adjustable base, make sure the arm is parallel with the record surface.

Q: This kit is just the headshell and cartridge, but already attached together, right? If I wanted to replace the cartridge later, would I be able to do that normally?
Asked by:  - 2/4/2015
A: The cartridge comes installed on the headshell, but could be removed in the future if you wanted to place another cartridge on the headshell.
