The replacement styli for the former two are not clear and I have replaced them with two commonly available cartridges and they work fine.For the Technics Player the Replacement Stylus is EPS-24CSFor the Akai Player the Replacement Stylus is AKAI RS-90Can you please tell me whether I can replace them with some matching SHURE Magnetic Styli so that I can go on for a long time without changing the Stylus?Usually with a SHURE Stylus how long can you go on without a change provided you take care of them as specified? ( In years or sides of Records)What will be the Cost of matching SHURE Stylus?
