78 RPM STYLUS FOR ION iCT04 PHONO CARTRIDGE

The 78 RPM stylus for the Ion iCT04 phono cartridge 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.

Great service

Quick efficient service

Perfect match for Shure

Back in business and it sounds so good 😎

Excellent All-Round

A great company to deal with. Very prompt with communication, and an excellent product that is not easy to find!

Well made high quality stylus.

Stylus packaging is attractive, sturdy and functional and included a detailed spec/instruction sheet.

The stylus fit the cartridge perfectly and displayed excellent craftsmanship.

Little or no break in time was required and sounded excellent right out of the box. It’s response sounds accurate and flat with strong natural lows and crisp non-sibilant highs. Detail and separation is excellent. It tracks well at recommended force of 1.25 grams.

I am very pleased with this stylus and recommended it for V15 Type IV MR users.
