Stylus for Realistic 1000 EDT cartridge?

FAQ #2422 Updated October 22, 2008

Question:

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?

Answer:

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.
