The cartridge on your turntable matters! It can impact the sound quality and sound characteristics greatly. Each cartridge has its own unique sound and specification. Installing a new cartridge can bring life back to your turntable!
An old cartridge, in addition to sounding inaccurate, can ruin your records!

Turntable setup requires expertise. Our experienced staff, using the proper tools and meters, will adjust the pitch, VTA (SRA), and tracking force to ensure optimized performance. This is all complimentary with purchase of turntables or cartridges.
Regular maintenance of your turntable is vital for proper playback. Bring in your turntable for belt, cartridge or stylus replacement, and we will have you up and running in no time!
Wondering if your current turntable could sound better? Bring it in! A new cartridge, possible rewire or upgrade to a more technical turntable can have you discovering your music all over again.
