Podcast: The Best Phono Cartridges Under $350

We take a look at the best phono cartridges under $350 on this week’s episode of the eCoustics podcast.

Vinyl finds itself at an unexpected crossroads in 2022; a new generation of listeners has turned the format into a billion dollar industry again and there are not enough phono cartridges in stock to satisfy global demand. If you are in the market for an affordable audiophile turntable, or replacement cartridge, it’s easy to get lost looking through the hundreds of affordable phono cartridges that are available.

Deciding if you want a moving coil or moving magnet (or moving iron if select one from Grado Labs) cartridge is just one part of the decision making process. Editor-in-Chief, Ian White and eCoustics Founder, Brian Mitchell take a look at eight of the best phono cartridges under $350 available now.
