A new cartridge can turn a good turntable into a great one. Every turntable has something that sits in the groove and ‘reads’ the undulations in the groove wall. Often referred to as needles, styli, cartridges or pick ups the cartridge has a difficult and tricky job because it has to turn a mechanical movement into an electrical signal so that you can hear the music! A great phono cartridge concentrates not only on providing the best sound, but more importantly the faithful and correct representation of the recorded sound. At Life Style Store we carry a range of cartridges from leading brands including Ortofon, Rega, van den Hul and Mobile Fidelity.
