Date Updated: August 16, 2017
Question:
When were the M78S phono cartridge and N78S stylus discontinued?
Answer:


Due to low demand and poor sales, both products were discontinued in Spring 2017.  The final U.S. retail prices: M78S - $120.00; N78S - $45.00.



The M78S had a tracking force range of 1.5 to 3 grams.   The spherical stylus tip of the N78S had a radius of 2.5 mils.
