The Spirit of JICO Styli

Posted by LP Tunes on

Have you ever wondered how JICO creates their styli? This video shows you how intricate it is to make each and every stylus.  Each stylus is handmade. There are different employees to assemble the tip, cantilever, rubber damper, and knob. A lot of styli may have a simple design on the outside, but they have complex internal structures. Each stylus goes through a complete inspection of all components before it's shipped out. They test each individual stylus to make sure sound signals are faithfully reproduced using an oscilloscope and with their ears. JICO takes pride in having the skills to produce an exceptional product!

Sounds great.

Pleased I didn't go with the Ortofon Red.

Surprisingly nice

From "online research" (done after I ordered it!) I thought that this stylus would not be completely compatible with my V15RS. Well, I still don't know about completely but it sounds very good. I notice that LPTunes recommends it for the Pro-S which (I understand from research) is the same as the V15RS. Anyway I agree. I would recommend it too as the lowest cost way to get the wonderful sound from a V15RS.

Great stylus. Great service

Well packaged. Arrived undamaged. Sounds great. Very pleased with LPtunes and Jico

A+ Quality

A+ Quality replacement for n447.

Excellent Seller

Once again, a smooth and quick transaction. Stylus arrived quickly and as described.
