TD 146

Post by Hogie1canobie » 12 Jul 2019 03:19

Hi,
Have just been lucky enough to have been given a TD146, it has a tp11mkiii and 63 head. the cartridge is a Empire ltd500 with no stylus. should I get a replacement stylus or opt for a new cartridge. I guess what I am asking, is the Empire worth keeping.
Thanks

I see LP Gear has a Japanese replacement stylus for $35 USD. The Empire is probably worth spending that.
I have little experience with Empire.

Cheers,
Alec

It is also missing the finger lift off the tp63 head (i am assuming they had one) does anyone know what one would fit or do i need to make one. any pictures would be great.

Several good headshells use a fingerlift that is nothing more than a strip of metal with 2 holes in it. Some go across the top of the headshell, and some are bent to go between the cartridge and headshell. Both are held by the mounting screws.

Cheers,
Alec
