    Hi,

    I am no expert but found this turntable in my loft that I bought years ago and forgot about! Can anyone advise a decent quality needle that fits this? I really have no clue so any help is much appreciated. I have managed to purchase a new belt.

    Looking forward to getting the old vinyl out. Realised that I have Stone Roses/Smiths/Nirvana that appear to be worth a few more bob then when I put them up there!

    Thanks,

    Is there a cartridge in there already? If not I like the AT95e. Cheap and sounds great!

    Yeah but not being used for so long don't mind investing in something better. Thanks for your advice.

    Do you know what's on there? Its easier replacing a stylus than the cartridge if its a reasonable one.

    Second vote for the AT95e. Huge bargain!

    Don't forget to change the turntable belt as well.
