Wanted: T4P cartridge

Post by who2018 » 17 Jan 2019 15:07

Hi all,

I own 2 Technics turntables (a SL-J1 and a SL-J2)
They both are looking for a new cartridge, I believe the mounted ones are now a Shure M92E.
Any other reasonable priced T4P cartridge is also fine.
I live in The Netherlands but shipping cost for such small items are not very high (I hope ;-)

Any suggestions?

Best regards,
Willem.

This has been described as great deal. I am tempted, but just can not justify another cartridge. It is on well known auction site.

Try Thakker.eu ...it's in Germany, shipping is cheap, and they should have what you are looking for.

You could try

Think they are currently selling the conical AT300 , but they also have the Original AT elliptical ATN3472SE stylus available

Hi all,

I have ordered an Audio Technica ATU 4040 EP T4P from Thakker (thanks for the tip Pauw !) which I intend to use in the J2.
I also have ordered an Audio Technica AT 85 EP T4P which I intend to use in the J1 (just to be able to compare and to hear if the difference of €100,= is noticeable for my 62 years old ears).
I will keep you informed.
Regards.

Receiver the package today and immediately mounted and tried the Audio Technica ATU 4040 EP T4P on my J2.
What a difference!
Warmer and nice, like a new tt.
I wil try the other one on my J1 in the weekend.
