Series Belt

Which is the right replacement needle (stylus) or cartridge for my MCS turntable?

I have a MCS Series Belt Drive Fully Automatic Turntable and it has a Audio Technica AT3482P cartridge on it. Unfortunately when i bought it at the store it came without a needle. What can i use to replace it? Do i have to go with specifically an Audio Technica AT3482P needle?
Can i replace it with a different cartridge i could pick up at skips music?

The Audio Technica ATN3472 conical stylus seems to be the correct replacement. An ATN3472e elliptical stylus would also fit the cartridge body. It would probably track a little cleaner and give you a little more extension at the frequency extremes. You can Google and find plenty of places to purchase either stylus online.

I'm guessing this table takes a P-mount cartridge that plugs straight into the tonearm and has a single screw on the side to secure it? If so, it could be replaced with any other P-mount cartridge you choose. A whole cartridge often costs about as much a replacement stylus these days, so replacing the whole thing wouldn't be a bad move if a new cart is easier for you to find than the stylus. Stepping up a notch to something that comes with an elliptical stylus would probably be a worthwhile upgrade.

There's also a chance the Audio Technica cart is in a universal adapter that converts their P-mount cartridges for use in a standard 1/2" mount headshell. In this case, the cart would be plugged into the adapter, the adapter would be mounted to the headshell with 2 screws and the adapter would be connected with tonearm wires and connectors to the pins on the adapter. If this is the case, you could replace your cartridge with any standard 1/2" mount cartridge.

Good luck getting the old MCS going! If you email me the model # of the turntable, there's a slight chance I could send you a new belt for free if you're interested. I recently tried to get an old belt drive going and just couldn't get it to run at the right speed. The table went in the trash and I have a couple different sizes of brand new drive belts I can't use.

Also... you may do best shopping online... Most music stores seem to carry only DJ cartridges. They are all standard mount, so if you need a P-mount cartridge, you're out of luck. Also, the DJ carts generally track heavier and have a more "closed in" sound. A lighter tracking cartridge designed for hi-fi listening would be a better choice for sound quality and less record wear.
