Turntables Without A Cartridge

A long time ago when the earth was flat, turntables ruled the world but, just like the dinosaurs, a catastrophic event, the invention of the compact disc, saw records and turntables heading for extinction. Nobody really knows how they survived but around 2005 vinyl sales started mounting a comeback and naturally turntable sales increased along with them. Today vinyl sales are back where they were two decades ago and continue to rise.  Most of us here at Audio Trends were, ahem, around when dinosaurs, whoops, turntables were king and naturally we are thrilled they got their groove back, so to speak.

Most turntables come with a ‘tonearm’ fitted, that’s the long curved or straight thing on the right. However turntable manufacturers often give you a choice of whether the pointy bit, the ‘cartridge’, comes pre-installed or not, just in case you already have a cartridge that you would like to use. If you happen to have your own cartridge, then this is the place to look.

Welcome to ‘Turntables Without A Cartridge’ where all the turntables need a cartridge to feel complete. If you have a cartridge but you’re not sure if it will work well with your turntable choice please get in touch and one of our experts can advise. We can also install your cartridge on any turntable you buy from us at a nominal fee or install it free of charge when you purchase both turntable and cartridge from Audio Trends.
