78 RPM REPLACEMENT FOR ION iCT04RS STYLUS

The 78 RPM replacement for the Ion iCT05RS stylus is used with the Ion iCT05 phono cartridge. The stylus features a 3.0 mil polished diamond designed specifically for the correct tracing of the wide grooves of 78 RPM records. It results in minimal groove wear and accurate rendition of voice and music.

A very common misconception is that you can use an LP stylus for playing 78 RPM records. This is one quick and sure way to damage the 78 RPM record grooves. To maintain the playback fidelity of your 78 record, you really need to use a stylus designed for 78 RPM records, otherwise with just a single playing, you could ruin the fidelity of the record grooves. Moreover, the LP stylus is much narrower than the 78 RPM record groove hence the tip will slide to the bottom of the groove where debris has collected for many decades. This results in extraordinarily high-surface noise.

Oooga Booga

I went to the well and purchased a second stylus. Man, this one sounds better than the first. Even though they are the identical stylus, this second one has some kind of magic going on. I am getting even more detail and transient response. Background vocals are even more defined. This second stylus is 95 percent of the original Shure stylus sound. Must be some kind of oooga booga magic going on. Seriously though, this v15rs stylus is sounding superb. If I give it too much of a glowing review, there will be a run on this stylus. Shhhh, let's keep this among ourselves.
