RCA had an 800 parts order number in the phone directory until the mid 1990's. 
Shortly before it went inactive they starting referring older parts inquiries 
to Fox International, indicating that Fox had purchased the RCA new old stock. 
Fox still has a lot of parts unavailable elsewhere, but it's necessary to call 
them at 800-321-6993 as their web site is very incomplete at present. MCM seems 
to be the best place for price on the stuff they have available. Vance Baldwin 
has the best web site, as entering a model number will bring up a list of all 
the parts available, without the need to search for part numbers one at a time. 
One problem with this is that their system allows you to order some parts that 
turn out to be unavailable when they attempt to fulfill the order.

Has anyone found an inexpensive source for Hitachi stylus cartridges? I got one 
of these for $37 a few years ago, but the company that sold it no longer exists.
Vance Baldwin presently lists the CTG-100 cartridge at $145.45 and the CTG-200 
at $156.27.
