LP GEAR 78 RPM STYLUS FOR ION MAX LP CONVERSION TURNTABLE WITH STEREO SPEAKERS
The Ion Max LP Conversion Turntable with Stereo Speakers
was fitted with a CZ-800-10 phono cartridge and stylus. A photo of the
78 RPM stylus is supplied above. The stylus features a 3.0 mil
diamond for correctly playing 78 RPM records. The color of the stylus
varies. 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 record 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 RPM 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.
