The Crosley CR-6016A CR 6016A CR6016A Spinnerette Portable USB turntable was fitted with cartridge that has an optional 78RPM stylus.

Please verify and use this as a guide only since the cartridge and stylus may have been changed through the years.
To maintain the playback fidelity of your 78 records you really need to use a stylus designed for 78 RPM records. A very common misconception is that you can use a LP stylus for playing 78 records. This is one quick and sure way to damage the 78 record grooves. Moreover, the LP stylus is much narrower than the 78 record groove hence the tip will slide to the bottom of the groove where debris has collected for many decades. This results in extraordinarily high surface noise and inferior reproduction.
