JICO replacement Empire S2000E/III stylus
Michael Watsonw (Wilson, US)
New life for a classic cartridge

I really enjoy listening to albums with my Empire S2000E/III and this new JICO stylus. It gives me another experience from my normal Ortofon 2m blue cartridge. I get a better upper range definition and slightly less bass with the Empire/JICO setup, and a perfect alternative cartridge for my budget stereo!

Good job

A different brand of stylus cartridge was on my record player, which I discovered when I bought the record player brand of replacement needle, and it didn't fit. I sent photos, and they were able to identify the correct stylus. It works!

9.1 Belt

Replacement for Sears 91827 stylus
Brent Shoemaker (Arlington, US)
Exactly what I needed for my 70’s record player

Perfect fit - thanks

Excellent product

Have tried the replacements from the uk and all were sub standard. This one however coming in from America is a different matter. Sound quality is fantastic what a difference from British products. One drawback was delivery charges.
