I am waiting for an expert to install both needle & belt. After he does that I will be glad to write a review.

Not yet received. Be patient. It has to travel a long way.

Winston Orcutt (New Fairfield, US)
LP Gear AR-XA Replacement Belt

This is a good quality belt but it is noticeably tighter and stronger than the two original belts I have, even allowing for their age. I read that Villchur took particular pains with the belt, so I think it is reasonable to be concerned about the differences.

I have ordered replacement belts for this turntable from other reputable sources with the same result -- and possibly the same belt. I suspect it is a metric belt that is considered a close match, not a replication of the original, inch-dimensioned belt.

I have no way to test whether the replacement belt holds the same performance specs as the original. The music sounds good, with perhaps a bit better bass and attack definition than my original belts, which are now some 50 years old. I am going to use this new belt for a while and hope that it does not stress the motor bearings.

Patrick Smith (Washington, US)
Reinvigorated my turntable

Just what I needed to improve the sound.

Fast delivery and good communication

The order arrived in a timely manner, and LP provided good communication throughout the process. It feels good to have a needle that I know is unblemished and I can play my vinyl worry free.

Hard to match what I needed

Bottom Line up front: quick response but some cost for the return and refund.
In spite of having the model number from the Technics manual, the item shipped did not fit. LP Tunes was quick to respond with a return authorization, BUT as warned, I had to pay postage to return the misfit as well as a 15% restocking fee.
I bought the replacement from an obvious and popular source which paid shipping and offered free returns if needed.

Replacement for Sony ND-5G ND5G stylus
Customer (Philadelphia, US)
Sony ND-5G ND5G stylus worked out great

I am restoring a 1983 Sony PS-LX22 turntable and was looking for a reliable and knowledgeable source for a replacement stylus. This Sony model has a head shell that's really hard to find so getting a good cartridge to fit on the one i had was very important. I looked no further than LP Tunes as they really know what they're doing when it comes to matching the right stylus / cartridge to an older head shell. Always happy with them.
