Hi again Darius and welcome back to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, please confirm if the spare cartridge/stylus of the Beogram 8000 is an MMC2.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
My spare is a MMC 220 EN It includes a small plastic plug like thing that I guess is needed in some applications to connect to tone arm. I think this stylus is near the top of the line intended for the 8000 series. Question is if it will work. But I realize if it did work I may be using a much more valuable one then intended for the 1800. I have the spare due to the upgrade to the next higher with saphire counterliever which this one did not have. Just noticed its a Biogram 1700 not 1800. I attached pics. Auction ends in 2 hours. no bids , under $20. I may get it to use to sell it along with other vintage gear so I am selling a complete system. If pics do not come trhough, can try search by model and ending soonest. Thanks

Appreciate the pictures and confirms my initial suspicions.

Based on the Service Manual, the 1700 indeed uses MMC20S and the EN version is a full upgrade thus should work (even better).
