Sony ps t33

I recently purchased a Sony PS T33 and want to tune it up. Mostly I am interested in putting the highest quality cartridge and stylus on it that I can it but, of course, am on a budget. I have a Marantz 2245 receiver to go along with it and am interested in suggestions as I am too retarded to find but one option for a cartridge replacement on my own. Thanks,

You should have a look at a Shure M97xE. It is their audiophile cartridge and it retails at my local music store for $80 CDN.

cartridge and stylus for your PST-33


If you are looking for a budget cartridge and stylus, you may try the Audio Technica AT-95E. I had it with my PST-33 last year, with good results.

It looks that there are not stylus replacement, but you will find it with cartridge at US $ 50.00 in the U. S. A.
