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?

There is a weight on the back of the tonearm that is for tracking force adjustment. This is the only thing that can be adjusted. It's just factory set for the factory cartridge to 1.25 grams. I have an SL-BD20D and it has the exact same tonearm. The weight on the back has a philps-head screw to adjust the weight balance.
