    Stanton 500, the original gold coloured ones. Not sure what the styluses are though.

    Another idea if this is suitable for dj-ing? Or would i have to buy new carts?

    Maybe the Shure M44-7s or stanton 680 v3s? Going for DVS

    Yes they are perfectly suitable for DJing, they were the "go-to" in house cartridge for the majority of nightclubs in the 1990's > 2000's.

    Not too sure about the Stylus on these either, I seem to recollect a black/Blue vesion of the 500 at one point so they may be original stanton as well.

    Replacement styluses are easy to find if those are bad.

    They were the carts I got on my first decks in 2002ish, they stopped making the blue stylus which is on them ones around the same time as I had to replace mine with the newer white one when they needed replacing.

    The styli are 500al2's. About the same performance wise, though they are not quite as loud. The 520v3 fits on, that would be the best upgrade for holding.

    Thanks for the replies guys! So is the catridge body the original stanton 500s? or stanton 500 AL II?are they the same thing or different?

    I found this conversion chart on stanton's website,

    http://www.stantondj.com/cartridges.html

    Im guessing I should replace it with a N 500 stylus if needed?
