I lost out on the bid to by the Micro Seiki headshell, so I purchased a generic headshell for $14.00 @ (http://www.garage-a-records.com/prod....php?prod=HS1B
). I then purchased an Audio Technica cartridge & styli. They work great, all for much less than the authentic Micro Seiki was being bid at! Thanks for all of your help and concerns! Good luck!
