Name *


The stylus is arguably the most important component. It's typically a diamond. On cheap entry level turntables, it is usually not a diamond and is terrible for your vinyl (except our LP60 which sports the AT91 diamond :)

In moving magnet cartridges (the most common) magnetic conductors inside the cartridge surround a magnet and as it moves its magnetic field is distributed between the conductors. This energy flows through copper coil to produce an electrical signal which is sent to the amplifier to be reproduced through the speakers.

We can find almost any replacement needle. Click on the image for way more info.


We stock world-renowned Audio-Technica turntables / record players (as well as headphones). The company has been around for over 50 years and are so good at what they do they make the mics for the Grammy's and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Their decks are no exception to this level of quality. By far our biggest sellers are the LP60, LP120 and LP3. Most people have a lot of questions and we endeavour to provide answers here, but by all means come in or call to get the low-down.

By way of brand-quality evidence; A-T make a $7000 moving coil cartridge, so they are not going to tarnish their name with low quality home-HiFi
