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

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.
