QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
I need a loupe to check my stylus condition on my turntable:what's your suggestion?
Usually a really good quality 10X magnification is best; if you want stronger then maybe 20X... 30X would be for very specialist applications.
I'm not familiar with stylus conditions. To see what various magnifcations look like through loupes, see Loupes compared | Quicktest.
