If your Moving Magnet cartridge model is not listed then unfortunately we have not successfully matched a suitable alternative from our current range.  Our best recommendation in this instance would be to replace the full cartridge with a newer model.  Our new range of VM cartridges have been designed with longevity in mind, to try to ensure that cartridge generator bodies are not made redundant in the circumstance that your exact replacement stylus model is eventually discontinued and no longer available on the market.  As demonstrated by the list above, a wide-range of new styli are compatible with your original generators, and this is a priority for Audio-Technica.


If you have a Moving Coil cartridge, your stylus is not field-replaceable (except for the original AT-30E and AT-35E cartridges, of course).  In this case, please see our article on Moving Coil Cartridge Repairs
