Stylus 402-M208-165 78RPM only Version



Important note:
This is a diamond needle is for 78rpm only.
We have had this custom ordered with a diamond (400hrs) tip to offer a quality alternative to the sapphire (100hrs) tips you will find elsewhere. See 'related products' below for 33/45 rpm needles.


MODERN/DJ SECTION:
• VESTAX HANDY TRAX VR1SS

NOSTALGIC SECTION:
Basically we have observed that 'all' new nostalgic or retro turntables now on the market use this needle. Please note that even though many of them are 3 speed, they only come with a needle for 33/45's (LP) you must use this needle, the 793-D3 for 78rpm only in order to not damage your 78rpm records with a modern nostalgic turntable.

CHINESE FACTORY DEFECTS ALERT:

Some nostalgic players shipped from China with a poorly made version of the cartridge for this needle that does not meet industry standards. While it does accept the originally supplied "402-M208-165" type needle from the same Chinese factory, it does not accept industry standard "793" series needles that have been around for decades. This issue is that correctly made 793 needles from us won't click into place well and tend to fall off. When you get a 793 series needle from us it will conform to industry standards and NOT fit these poorly designed versions of this cartridge. In this case the only course of action is to replace the entire cartridge with our new >>>P-188 cartridge<<< that we have carefully sourced to meet industry standards and be able to accept 793 type needles for decades to come.

LEETAC TAP-512 and many more.



ALL OTHERS:

If you have a visual match to the above but seek additional affirmation or other parts for your model, please view our extensive model number database **Find My Player** for the most up to date model listing.

For a partial listing of many other record players, that use the 402-M208-165 type needle but are generally not considered "nostalgic", see the more complete listing at 793-D7M

402-M208-165 78 RPM review
I bought this needle as a replacement for the stock item provided in a Crosley Cruiser all-in-one player. It is hands down better for sound reproduction on all fronts. 78s play with more clarity and tonal range and the difference is immediately notable. I had to tape the needle to the cartridge as my turntable was one of the non 'industry standard' players and it would not click into place. Still sounded much better than stock.

It fits, it works, now I can confidently digitize my mom's old 78 phono records to cd.

402-M208-165 78RPM Stylus is excellent value!
I am enjoying using my 78RPM stylus I purchased from you. You mailed the stylus very quickly and $15.95 is a fair price. It sounds excellent on my Numark PT01USB Portable turntable.

If you have a "nostalgia" turntable and 78 rpm records, this is a must have. Excellent quality part.
