Stereoneedles.com Inc. was founded in 1970 to serve the audio consumer with a single product category in mind — that of phonograph cartridges and genuine original styli, or needles. (We have, since our inception, sold nothing but original styli; we highly recommend against the purchase of “generic,” or “imitation” replacement product. The resultant degradation of sound quality and potential for loss of vinyl are not recoverable.)
Allow us to reminisce. Who at “that time” didn’t own a turntable? Yet as one of thousands of retailers serving vinyl collections nationwide with similar product, we not only survived but thrived . . . by offering the finest product available at better-than-reasonable prices. Not uncommon were the days when more than 400 shipments would be made — yes, all in a single day.
True to form still today, that is our only — if not lonely — intent here at stereoneedles.com. We maintain sizable inventories of mostly all of what we list, including many items no longer otherwise available anywhere . . . on Earth; any product stated to be in stock is on our premises ready to ship — never in a “supplier’s” warehouse needing transfer to us if and when ever again to be available.
We are available Monday through Thursday between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. EST to answer your queries and to serve your need for advice. Call us toll-free at (866) NEEDLES. Until all are listed individually on this site, phonograph cartridges available to you, in stock, are many from AKG, Audio-Technica, Bang & Olufsen, Ortofon, Osawa and Shure. And not only those manufactured today, — in some cases so inferior to product of the past — but many a classic that will warm your heart and excite your senses.
Our address has not changed since 1980; feel free to make your purchase via secure credit card payment through PayPal on our site. Otherwise, orders, payments and non-working product (for model-number verification) may be mailed or shipped to us as follows:
