Customer Q&A

6 questions already asked

hi, will this work on a Technics SL 1800 old turntable, about 45 years old and works.?
[ Steve  Feb 18, 2023 ]
1 answer
Greetings Steve, and thank you for your question. The AT-VM95E/H used a standard 1/2 inch mount and 4 wire pin connection, just like your Technics SL1800 uses.
[ THOMAS  Feb 19, 2023 ]  Staff
Can I use the Audio-Technica AT-VM95E on my Panasonic turntable?
[ Philip  Jan 20, 2023 ]
1 answer
You will have to check your tonearm style and headshell mount on your Panasonic turntable specifically, Philip. If you have a screw-on style headshell like on the Audio-Technica LP-120XUSB in the link below for reference, you can use the AT-VM95E and pre-mounted headshell combo. If you have an integrated headshell on your Panasonic (built-in to the tonearm) you can potentially use the cartridge replacement in the link below that would have to be mounted on to your tonearm/headshell. This means you can use the wonderful AT-VM95E on most any turntable deck!

will the AT- VM95E/H replace a AT11EPQ?
[ Jim  Jan 14, 2023 ]
1 answer
The AT11EPQ appears to be only a cartridge. The AT-VM95E/H includes both a cartridge and headshell. If the AT11EPQ is attached to a similar headshell, then it should be possible to use the AT-VM95E/H to replace the entire headshell and cartridge on your turntable.
[ ZACHARY  Jan 15, 2023 ]  Staff
Will this fit on a technics sl-d202 turntable ?
[ mark  Dec 19, 2022 ]
1 answer
Greetings Mark, and thank you for your question. The Audio Technica AT-VM95E/H is a universal headshell/cartridge. It will mount to your tone arm, and connect with the same 4 wires.
[ THOMAS  Dec 19, 2022 ]  Staff
will this fit on a Technics SL-1200MK2 turntable?
[ EDWARD  Dec 16, 2022 ]
1 answer
Greetings Edward, and thank you for your question. The Audio-Technica AT-VM95E/H uses a universal headshell, and will attach to your Technics turntable just like the original headshell.
[ THOMAS  Dec 16, 2022 ]  Staff
Can you replace a worn stylus on this model?
[ GERARD  Mar 13, 2021 ]
