I'm brand new to turntables, and recently acquired an old Technics SL-Q2 along with a pretty good record collection. I'm excited to start listening, but the stylus is busted! The TT has an Empire 5000 L.A.C. and the current broken stylus is opaque blue in color. There's very little information online about this cartridge, but I think it will take a 440D, which is a bit pricey ($80). Does anybody know of other more inexpensive styli that will work with this cartridge? Also, other than Ebay and lpGear, where else do you buy your styli and TT parts? Thanks for the help!
