Standard Mount Digital Transfer Cartridge w/Elliptical Diamond

Note: This BC3600DE is the best selling cartridge style on the planet. Now, we have exclusively improved the final product to you by installing a high quality .3x.7 elliptical diamond needle made in Japan. This makes the final product extremely close to the long since discontinued SIGNET MODEL 100 by Audio Technica. The significant jump in the quality of this 211-DE-guard .3x.7 elliptical needle vs. the entry-level 211-D6 conical tip is that it rewards you with a greater groove wall contact area. This will lift greater fidelity from the grooves, into your computer or digital device (or ears) so that a much greater amount of musical info is available for further digital processing.

This will provide you with a mid level setup at a great price. Although we are offering this product as being well suited for vinyl to digital transfer, this cartridge is also a fine all-around choice for just directly enjoying records. Additionally, you can upgrade the needle later down the line with a 211-DHE Hyperelliptical or the flagship top of the "211" line, the 211-DSH, see below. Presuming all you need is a cartridge, for the vast majority of average turntables, this is the recommended setup for transferring your LPs to digital without breaking the bank.

Being well suited for transferring vinyl to digital. The same cartridge has been sold with and as original equipment across dozens of brands for decades now. Rest assured if a search has brought you here this is the entry level solution for 1/2" mount turntables regardless of the brand. The corresponding needle that it comes with is our stock # 211-DE

Because this cartridge can be mounted on a headshell with two vertically mounted screws, side by side, 1/2" apart, it is known as a 1/2" mount cartridge. Other mounting characteristics are that it has 4 exposed wires in the back and is almost never found on a linear tracking turntable.

The headshell is the hardware attached to the end of the tonearm that is usually distinguished by the 'handle' that sticks out to the right for lifting the tonearm over to the record from the rest position. If your turntable is linear tracking it means the whole tonearm slides several inches from side to side as opposed to the standard type usually designated 'straight' or 'S shaped' which pivots on a stationary 'hub' assembly at the right rear corner of the turntable. A linear tracking turntable will generally have buttons you must operate to move the tonearm and will almost always be found with a (T4P) Pmount cartridge. (Go back up one category and click on Pmount).

Often people think they must have a brand of cartridge that matches their turntable brand. This is totally unnecessary and often impossible to achieve these days. In fact, the vast majority of turntable manufacturers, had a third party cartridge manufacturer make the cartridge on their behalf. Also, cartridge wiring connections usually go straight to your amplifier, receiver or computer thus allowing the turntable to make no direct electrical changes to the cartridge output signal.

Nice product, espcially for the price!
Configuration is with the .3x.7 elliptical tip. I am very pleased with this item. I can't imagine a better cartridge and stylus for the money. Anything equal would be cost a lot more money.

Vinyl to Digital Transfer Phono Cartridge
The service department is a national treasure. After ordering the wrong needle, Kyle in service listened to what I had discovered and shipped what I needed. A pre-amplifier to work with a home theater amplifier that had replaced my tube amplifier and a vinyl to digital transfer phono-cartridge. It didn't dawn on me that I needed more than just a needle to make my old pioneer turntable sing. When I made the amplifier change I kind of wondered why the volume was weaker. Now, with the right components, I have a quality sound and some real volume. Kyle, in service, stuck with me thru a couple of mailings and returns before I discovered my error. I can assure anyone who reads this that turntableneedles.com is totally committed to our listening pleasure and satisfaction.

good needle for the price
I ordered this needle to replace a audio technica needle that was bent slightly. It does not sound as warm as the audio technica, but at less than half the price I'm ok with that for now. I was also worried that the bent needle could be damaging my records. Install was easy with good instuctions. Turntable needles shipped fast and I'm reccomending them to others.
