I'm an international broadcaster and remember meeting Glenn Libgott, a
Canadian guy who now lives in Holland and has been running Tonar
www.tonar.nl from an office in Amersfoort (though I see the website is
currently being revised) for ages and still exhibits at trade shows. He
certainly knows his stuff and I have found him to be very helpful as well as
knowledgeable. [log in to unmask] will reach him.

Interesting. I just checked Broadcast Supply's web site and they list four
Stanton cartridges available, the 500V3, 520V3, 505V3, and 680V3MP4. Also
78 styli for their 500, 600 and 800-series cartridges. Also several Stanton
turntables. Nothing in their closeout area.
