    M78S - 78RPM Turntable Cartridge (Stereo) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does The Job (for 78rpm records) First things first ... B&H is awesome in regards to their: website layout, checkout process, shipping times, prices and when you need them, their customer service is top notch. Now, about the SHURE M78S: PROS: - Fits perfectly (on my Audio Technica LP-120) - Quality sound CONS: - None SUMMARY: - If you need a stylus/cartridge for 78rpm records, this does the job very well; at least for my needs. B&H sold it a good price too. Highly Recommend It!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't shortchange your 78 records! 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Play your 78's With Care 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!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good price, good product and delivery! 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to setup and sounds good 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).
