Hyperelliptical stylus for Shure Me97HE cartridge

Worked perfect

Thanks for your fast service and the product is great, too.

I don't know what you receive my previous email. But the needle was broke off the stylus. Beside the point it didn't fit anyway. So is what I need is a stylus and a cartridge that is compatible with my turntable. Thank you look forward to hearing back from you

Stylus for Pioneer M-6500 turntable

Three Cheers

I now have better than twenty hours of listening with my new Jico V-15 Type Three HE from LP Tunes. I say “ three cheers”, for Jico’s V-15 Type Three. It sounded excellent from the start, and has continuously improved with play. Used first with a Dual 1229, then a Technics SL-5350, it provides strong bass, pleasing midrange and detailed treble. Better than my original Shure from 1974? Yes. In my opinion, it is definitely a worthy upgrade. If you’re fence sitting, I recommend you take the plunge.
