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?

The distortion I was talking about isn't because of being mastered in the digital domain, it's because no one can master an album nicely anymore, for digital, much less a medium that has physical limits to consider. And musical "artists" are mostly idiots anymore who can't even sing, so they get close to the mic so they don't have to sing loud.

The only thing to adjust on a p-mount is tracking force. There is nothing else needs to be adjusted because the geometry is set up already. One would just need a scale.
