• NOTE: Because this needle is designed for use specifically with STANTON cartridges, it can be found in numerous brands of turntables. In some cases the cartridges for this needle may be original equipment supplied with a new turntable, but was also likely to have been selected at time of sale to complete a turntable sold without a cartridge or later as an upgrade to the original cartridge supplied by the turntable manufacturer. This needle should be matched primarily to the STANTON cartridge type not necessarily the turntable.(from Stanton Literature) - "Stereohedron Stylus Tip is a patented feature assuring greater bearing radius and more contact area with the groove and gives exceptional frequency response . . . SUPERior protection of high frequency signals in the groove . . . longer record life . . . longer stylus life . . . better tracing ability."
