Vintage Audio Technica Cartridge, VS240LC

I came across this cartridge on a 1982 vintage Pioneer TT.

The cartridge is a VS240LC, a moving magnet type with a linear contact stylus. AT claimed 5-45khz w/31 db separation @ 1k, 21 db @ 10k, and channel balance within 1 db.

Is this a keeper?

Calls for a vsn240lc stylus, which seems unobtainable. Will other styli work? Is it possible this one is OK ?


Dear Ken: I never had the opportunity to hear/heard this AT cartridge so I can't say about its quality performance.
You have it so when you hear it you can decide about.

Here you can buy a stylus replacement:

Regards and enjoy the music,
