We have a Technics SL-BD22D turntable, originally manufactured in 1998 and still with its original Technics P34 needle and cartridge (T4P standard).
I'd like to replace the needle and/or cartridge. The deck is factory adjusted for tracking force and anti-skating of 1.25

Which new needle and/or cartridge would be most suitable?

Thanks
jamie.

Why not just get a replacement stylus assembly:

No worries then about tracking force, anti-skate, etc.

Alternatively, a full selection of P-mount cartridges over here:

Including a series of Audio-Technica units that look to be "plug & play" replacements for your P34 (which was probably sourced from A-T in the first place).
