Stanton has reintroduced the Pickering NP/AC cartridge under a different moiniker — Stanton 400.V3 cartridge.
When you order the NP/AC cartridge, you will instead receive the Stanton 400.V3 cartridge.
The NP/AC cartridge is Pickering's "mouse that roared" with a whopping 10mV output level. It's durable, cost-effective, and the loudest cartridge on earth! It can be used in varied applications such as high fidelity home listening, recording to CD, and for jukebox. In addition, when used with the optional D1527 stylus, the NP/AC metamorphoses into a superior 78 RPM phono cartridge.
