The turntable cartridge is the housing that holds the stylus, also known as the needle. It is responsible for converting the grooves on your vinyl records into electrical signals that can be amplified and played through your audio system. The phono cartridge plays a crucial role in capturing the delicate nuances and details of your beloved records, ensuring faithful reproduction of the music.
Over time, the stylus of a cartridge gradually wears down due to its constant contact with the record's grooves. However, the lifespan of a cartridge and stylus depends on various factors, such as the quality of the materials, the amount of use and the care taken during handling. On average, a stylus can last anywhere from 500 to 1000 hours of playback, while a cartridge may last for several thousand hours.
