      Comments about Shure M78S - 78RPM Turntable Cartridge (Stereo):

      I bought this so I could play my grandfather's 78s. It was very easy to setup and it sounds good (well as good as an old scratched up 78 can sound).

            This is a great, inexpensive way to properly listen to 78 records on a modern turntable. An LP stylus will just jump around in the groove and won't sound nearly as good. Recommended for anyone getting into listening to 78s.

              I am using this cartridge to spin my 78 rpm vynal records. The ease of mounting this cart. to the arm was surprising, and it's play and tracking are well worth the cost. Two thumbs up!

                I am using this cartridge to transcribe old "78's" to mp3's. Cartridge is just what was needed. Watch the installation instructions for wiring since they are incorrect.
