Sumiko Pearl for TEAC TN-300 Turntable
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I purchased a TEAC TN-300 Turntable early 2015, not to replace my Dual CS-500 but to have USB output when wanted. While the Audio Technica cartridge included is not bad at all, I thought a cartridge with greater frequency response might enhance the sound. While it does not disappoint as I can hear a slight difference on selected recordings, if it were priced in the over $300.00 range, it probably would not be worth the investment. However, since it is not a bad ideal to replace an older stylus after a few years of use, this would be a great choice in the price range where it falls.
Pros: Extremely easy to replace the AT95E cartridge on the TEAC TN-300. Very good performance and frequency response.
