JICO appoints LP TUNES as exclusive distributor for the Americas

JICO, the world-class manufacturer of high quality stylus replacements, has chosen LP TUNES as the exclusive distributor for the Americas. LP TUNES with its parent Starbrands Networks, LLC have had a long business relationship with JICO. The exclusive distribution agreement was formally signed on October 26, 2017 and is aimed at expanding the availability of JICO styli in the Americas.

JICO, an acronym of Nippon Precision Jewel Industry Co. Ltd., is unique in their vertical integration which enables them to achieve supreme quality. They are able to engineer and manufacture styli from beginning to end including: stylus body molding, cantilever fabrication, diamond tip bonding, suspensions, & coil winding to quality control testing and listening to each stylus. JICO styli have the deserved reputation for peerless production and sound quality. 

JICO brand styli and cartridges will be available in the US, Canada, Mexico and the rest of the Americas. Recently there have been sellers claiming to sell JICO styli. JICO styli are sold only in JICO packaged casing. Beware of fakes, old, and used styli being sold as new JICO styli.

We are currently looking for dealers for Canada and South America. Please contact us at info@lptunes.com if you are interested in becoming a dealer.

New Life for Shure V15V

The Shure V15 has always been an even handed, great tracking cart. Perhaps verging on the boring, for some tastes. The JICO SAS styli retain the lush midrange, even handed presentation of the cart, but with a shot of adrenaline and perhaps a tad more revealing than the original styli. Super product!


Works a treat on my JVC quadraphonic system and despite the dreaded custom charges, it was still cheaper than modern equivalents and NOS stylus available elsewhere.

Nothing Like the Real Thing

When Shure was no longer a stylus option, and I saw JICO here n there (ahem ahem) I was suspicious, but thankfully checked the sole supplier I saw website directly, LPTunes, and got a Straight Answer ASAP to my question whether their stylus were refurbished or factory NEW, which they proved to be. Not only do my LP's play CLEARER than they did with the SHURE styluses; they actually play LOUDER! Could be Just My Imagination. Who knows?
