    Thumb Up Stanton 500 V3 Stylus Discontinued

    Cant find em anywhere, apart from cheap imitations. Obs not the best needle cart/stylus ever, but hard waring and great for leaving set up in the club for the monkeys to play with. Will they return? Should i get new new cartridges? Or is there an (official) stanton stylus that isn't discontinued that will do the job just as well. Got 500 mk II's on there atm and they seem to be doing the trick, but aint gna be able to get them forever.

    Cheers

    Just get some decent needles. They aren't that much better than the cheap imitations anyway. Get some Shure M44's if your worried about people breaking or stealing concords.

    personally i hate concords

    anyway. might be worth checking with stanton. just send them an email. there is probably a stylus avaliable that will work with the original cartridge


    while we are on the subject. i have m447 which has a spherical tip but want a elliptical stylus for ripping old vinyl.. is there a shure one that fits in the same cart?

    Stanton 500's are fucking atrocious needles. Teddy what's wrong with Concordes? I fell in love with them the moment I saw them...

    I disagree, aesthetically nothing looks better than concordes on 1210's. Makes the tonearm look more natural instead of hanging a great honkin hunk of 18th century phonograph needle on it.


    My first cart had stanton 500 needles. They were relatively new styli etc and the sound quality was just gash.
