CT 20 Turntable

Many thanks for this page; I own a CT 20 turntable, which seems the same, with an ortofon lma 12 cartridge.
Very good but automatic only, that's frustrating. I'm lookinf a replacement stylus.
Of course, an english manual should be welcome (I think a French one is avaliable...),
as for the other items of that pretty good
Cassette drive CC 20 (very good!)
Preamplifier CP 20
Power Amplifier CM 20 (very powerful)
Tuner CT 20 (actually failed)

If it make noise, it's already on! (Good Morning Vietnam!)
