78 RPM Stylus Information
Stanton has had requests in the past for information regarding the correct styli to use for playback of older records. In an effort to answer these types of questions, we have developed the following recommendations:
All Stanton cartridge and styli products can be used for playback of these records by using the standard 0.7 mil spherical, 0.4 x 0.7 mil or 0.3 x 0.7 mil elliptical styli supplied with the cartridge product.
All Stanton cartridges can be adapted to playback these records by the use of a 78-RPM replacement stylus. The replacement styli listed below are made for each family series of Stanton product and can be used in that specific family series, no matter the age of the cartridge.
These replacement 78-RPM styli may be obtained from your local Stanton dealer and will easily replace the current stylus in your cartridge body. You may have to increase your tracking pressure in order to keep the 78-RPM stylus in the record groove at the higher 78-RPM speed. This is because the older 78-RPM records vary in their groove width and pressing characteristics.
