The Audio-Technica AT-125LC is one of the most desirable cartridges. The VM type AT-125LC dual magnet vibration and generation systems has been highly regarded all over the world. We chanced upon a batch of new old stock AT-125LC phono cartridges and are thus able to offer this in a very limited quantity to collectors and very discriminating listeners.

LC-OFC Wire for High-Efficiency, High Linearity Signal Transfer

The Audio-Technica AT-125LC cartridge is fitted with LC-OFC lead wires. LC-OFC (Linear-Crystal Oxygen-Free Copper) is a highly refined copper material free of oxidizing agents and other impurities. A special process is used to elongate the lattice structure of the of the material to minimize the number of crystals in a given length of wire. For example, in standard copper there are more than 150,000 crystal boundaries for every meter length of wire. The LC-OFC reduces this number to 20 (less than 1/7500). The result is a startling drop in transmission losses and distortion across these boundaries. Signal transfer efficiency is improved and linearity is maintained even for extremely low signal levels. The use of LC-OFC wires assures that the fidelity of the signal reproduced by the Audio-Technica AT-125LC cartridge is transferred to the amplifier stage without modification.

Item came kinda slow but otherwise its all good. Price is reasonable

Great selection, fast shipping, quality products.

Recently ordered a Jico neoSAS/S stylus for my Shure V15-III from LP Tunes. Great selection and easy website to navigate.

best upgrade for AT3600L cartidge

Upgraded from the original to this and the sound is incredible even in the Retrolife turntable I got it for.

Exceptional value for money and excellent service!

Having spent years accumulating mostly Onkyo vintage kit and designg/building my own speakers, I thought it was time to change the stylus on the excellent AT 132EP cartridge which came with a wonderful Technics SL QL1 Linear Tracking turntable I recently bought in excellent condition. After some research, came across various reviews on alternatives, then found the LP Tunes site and decided I would spend the extra for their 152 replacement stylus with the Shibata diamond. Oh man am I glad I did! The lack of surface noise and improved musical reproduction is mind blowing. If you have a suitable cartridge, I cannot recomend this stylus enough and also the excellent service and fast delivery from LP Tunes.
But I have to add that now I have two problems...
a) deciding whether to listen to MUSIC on the Technics turntable or through the also extraordinary value Topping D70s DAC with the splendid Onkyo DX 6750 CD player (especially as I got both 2nd hand in mint condition for half pice) or high quality streaming...
and b) still trying to wrap my head around how the heck that little needle skipping over the grooves can re-create that wonderful sound.
I can live with those dilemmas because as Plato said... "Music is a moral law. It gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, and life to everything. It is the essence of order, and leads to all that is good, just and beautiful!"

Needle replacement

The replacement was received quick. I was so appreciative how they staff was assisting me in helping me

This stylus is a perfect fit

I ordered the replacement stylus and received it very quickly. The fit is perfect, but I haven't had the time to anylize the sound quality as I replaced a Compass Gold stylus. Right off the bat it sounds pretty good. I have three other cartridges and this cartridge was a pretty close performer to my Ortofon 2M Blue, with the Compass Gold stylus.
