NONE of this is a problem for me...! I was looking for (and found) a
"record player" with a ceramic cartiidge which would accomodate an
Astatic N8-3d needle; problem is that I no longer have the "fine
motor dexterity" to solder the connections to provide the plug which
I can place in my computer's "Line In" jack...! I have always found
that "light-weight" playing of 78's does NOT provide the full amount
of sound which they contain...!
