Stylus for Realistic 1000 EDT cartridge?

FAQ #2422 Updated October 22, 2008


I have a Kenwood turntable that has a Realistic 1000 EDT cartridge with an old Shure 8 X stylus in it that tracks at about 1 gram. The cartridge is still good, but I need to replace the stylus. Is there a replacement Shure stylus available that will work with this cartridge?


The 8X stylus is no longer available from Shure. Have you checked with Radio Shack? They may have "old" stock.

To replace your R1000EDT cartridge, we suggest the following cartridges:
M97xE or the M92E.
