Braun PS 500 Headshell

#1 Beitrag von aat » 21.10.2017, 10:30

Hello everybody!

My name is Angel and lately I managed to get a much admired Braun PS 500 Turntable. Production year 1973. I adore the design of this turntable. Unfortunately I cannot listen to it because it came without a headshell.
And my question is:
Can I replace the original headshell with another one since I cannot find an original?
And if yes, please advise what Headshell and cartridge can I use. Budget - round 100 euro.

Thanks in advance!

Hello Angel,
the headshell has a standard SME-type connector and quite a lot of headshells can be used on the PS 500.

But of course the original headshell looks best on the PS 500. An original one can be difficult to find. Once in a while they are offered on Ebay - you should calculate at least 40€ for a headshell without pickup.

Best Regards
Gerhard

Dear Gerhard,
Thanks for the prompt reply!

I agree that the original headshell is part of the design and looks great. I will try to buy it but in the meantime i will enjoy the turntable with another headshell.

Regards,
Angel
