Customer Q&A

5 questions already asked

Will this work with the Music Hall Classic turntable?
[ Randall  Oct 24, 2021 ]
1 answer
My initial answer is ''I don't know''. The AT-HS3 is a 1/2"-mount headshell that's angled to fit any turntable with a straight 4-pin tonearm. It is considered to be a ''universal mount'. The Music Hall Classic turntable, in the Crutchfield website, says -- ''Music Hall Classic - Removable head shell''. It looks like it might work, but hopefully someone else will be able to give you a more definitive answer. Also, determine whether an angled headshell will work for you. Good luck. Greg J.

Will it work with a Yamaha - PF-800?
[ Bill  Sep 17, 2021 ]
1 answer
I don't know if it will work for sure, but it will probably work if your Yamaha has a universal headshell connection. This is an Audio-Technica brand headshell which looks like an identical replacement to the angled headshell that came on my Denon turntable. It works great on my Denon. I hope this helps. Greg J

will this work with a denon dp 52f?
[ Tim  Jun 30, 2021 ]
1 answer
We do not have information on that Denon turntable to confirm if it can work, but we do know this will work on any turntable with a straight 4-pin tonearm. Also, we have advisors that can be reached by calling 1-800-324-9695 who can discuss the design of your turntable and its tonearm to check compatibility
