(all model references contingent upon the presence of an original SONY XL30, XL200 or XL250 series cartridge)this needle is often confused with our part number 7832 but they are NOT interchangeable. In fact, although we are confident we have correct needle and cartridge cross references listed above, we suspect that some models listed above may instead actually use the "7832" shown below. It is ALWAYS best to focus on the cartridge number currently installed rather than the player model number. If you find a mismatch please let us know right away. The "7832" type has a shorter shaft than the "7853" meaning that the 7832 brass shaft that goes into the cartridge does not extend beyond the ribbed plastic wings.
