Electronics Repair Questions? Ask an Electronics Technician
Hi there and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I am one of the HiFi experts here. I am in Maryland and have been helping customers like you on this site since 2005.
Ok then - I've had Pioneer turntables for about 45 years now but am not familiar with the P-09. Is that the complete model number?
Can you double check for me and I'll take another look.Thanks
Ok, I got your reply but it appears that you started a new thread. Let's try and keep it right here so that all the info is in one place.
Yes, it appears that I had a senior moment there. It's a Yamaha P09. I am familiar with that one.
Please give me a few minutes to pull some links together for you.
I'll be right back.
Ok, the P09 uses a "P-Mount" cartridge rather than the traditional 1/2" cartridge. The choices are fewer but you could look at the audio Technica AT81CP which is $29 HERE. I have one of those on an older Technics that I purchased for my daughter and it works and sounds great.
The next step up is to about the $75 price point for a Grado Black. CLICK HERE.
That's about as much as I would spend on a cartridge for a P09.
Please let me know if I can help you further.Regards.
Yes. I agree. One more for you - the Audio Technica AT85EP is about $39 (CLICK HERE) and has an elliptical stylus. The one on the 81CP is conical. The audio may be slightly improved with the elliptical.
