Will this Stylus work with my MCS 6700 Direct Drive Turntable?
[ David  Feb 06, 2022 ]
3 answers
this CARTRIDGE will work on that turntable. Just have to mount it on the head shell.
[ MICHAEL  Feb 08, 2022 ]
Probably. Fits 1/2 inch tonearms. Good basic cartridge.
[ MM  Feb 06, 2022 ]
The MCS 6700 is actually a Technics SL-1900 turntable. This Audio Technica AT-VM95C will work well with it. Frank Mufich, Mufich Audio Mckinney TX
[ FRANK  Feb 06, 2022 ]
Wiil it Work on my technics SL2000?
[ Patrick  May 20, 2021 ]
2 answers
sure will. Just mount it on the head shell.
[ MICHAEL  Feb 08, 2022 ]
It worked on my SL-D2 turntable. It is a matter of the 4 pins and the screws on each side of the cartridge. My guess is it will work, but if it doesn't you can return it. Crutchfield is Fantastic!!
[ TODD  Jul 24, 2021 ]
Will this fit a technics bd-10 ?
[ Bill  Apr 25, 2021 ]
2 answers
It should if BD-10 has a standard cartridge mount . I'd call Crutchfield.
[ MICHAEL  May 10, 2021 ]
I specifically don't know, but look at the relative size, attachment method and the length. If it is close to what you have give it a try. It worked well on my SL20. I knew it would work because it fit the size, attachment method and wire hookup set up. You have adjustments on drag and weight so that is not the issue. Crutchfield is great at giving you input. Just use it. If it doesn't fit then return it. Mine worked great!!
[ TODD  Apr 25, 2021 ]
Will this work on a jvc ql-a2 turntable?

We have not received any answers from other customers on your question. I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They should be able to help answer your question.
[ Calvin  Apr 28, 2021 ]  Staff
Will this work with a Technics sl-qd33 turntable? Thank you.
[ Ernie  Apr 09, 2021 ]
1 answer
Should be ok if you have an adjustable 1/2" mount headshell and 4 wire push on connectors
[ PAUL  Apr 09, 2021 ]
Will this fit a Technics SL-B2 turntable? Thanks
[ william  Mar 12, 2021 ]
2 answers
I don't see a reason why it wouldn't , you may have to do weight adjustments depending upon how you use your turntable.
[ RONNELL  Mar 25, 2021 ]
I have an SL-D2 and it is working so far...
[ TODD  Mar 24, 2021 ]
Will this fit a DUAL 1019 turntable?
[ Todd  Mar 05, 2021 ]
4 answers
I bought this to listen to some 78 rpm records that I have. I chose this because the stylus is large enough to not bottom out in the grooves. I'm going to install it on an Audio-Technica turntable, which is back ordered right now. It looks like a standard phono mount so I expect it would also fit a DUAL 1019 turntable. Sorry I can't give you a definite answer.
[ TOSHI  Mar 05, 2021 ]
It looks like the same replacement that was sent for my Dual turntable. Except my turntable apparently had a defect and other issues and had to be returned. Hope this helps.
[ KAREN  Mar 05, 2021 ]
This should work well on a Dual 1019. Not only that, it should sound great cause these ATs really match well with Duals and Thorens. The blind mounting nuts help with installation. This is an inexpensive cartridge, but its soundstage is anything but cheap and will shame many in the $100 -$200 range.
[ THOMAS  Mar 05, 2021 ]
Yes it has standard 1/2 " spacing and even comes with screws.
[ Furman  Mar 05, 2021 ]
Will this cartridge work with a Kenwood KD-41R turntable?
[ Stu  Jan 11, 2021 ]
1 answer
We do not have information about the mounting provided on that turntable for a cartridge. We do have advisors that you can reach by calling 1-800-324-9695 who can discuss the mount on your turntable to check.
[ Paul  Jan 30, 2021 ]  Staff
will the audio-technica At-VM95C work on an old Harmon/Kardon T25 turntable?
[ jay  Jan 09, 2021 ]
2 answers
It fit into turntables with a half-inch mount or onto turntables designed to work with head-shells. We have advisors that you can reach by calling 1-800-324-9695 to discuss your Harmon/Kardon T25 turntable and check compatibility
[ Paul  Jan 25, 2021 ]  Staff
If it mounts to the head-shell with two small machine bolts it should work out, good price for a dual moving magnet cartridge, works great for my Dual 1241 turntable!
[ PAUL  Jan 22, 2021 ]
Can this stylus be used for 78 rpm?
[ 8646409929  Dec 16, 2020 ]
2 answers
You will need a different stylus but it is available.
[ Furman  Mar 05, 2021 ]
It will play but you should use the stylus that is for 78 rpm for best results. The stylus for 78 rpm is considerably larger.
[ Furman  Dec 16, 2020 ]
