Needle is broken. Where in Canada to find replacement? Radio Shack still?

    My turntable needle is bent. I bent it back and it still plays but I think I need a new one. The P-mount cartridge is a Realistic RX8500 with the orange needle cart thingy. I just need the needle. Where can I look besides Radio Shack. I'll call there tonight, but I wonder what other options there are [​IMG]

    I think Radio Shack sells em but they look expensive. I guess since turntables ain't popular anymore I have to pay more for a simple little stylus?

    If you don't mind using a mailorder company, http://www.needledoctor.com has just about everything you could need/want for your turntable. They're not the absolute cheapest, but certainly not the most expensive, and they have a great reputation. Just a thought.

    I've had good luck with www.needleexpress.com also. You should see what your local Radio Shack / Best Buy / whatever charges for a low end new P-Mount cartrige. It may be less than a needle costs.
