I was looking for a replacement stylus for a Signet TK1EA. The places where the vintage vinyl/turntable geeks hang out suggested an Audio Technica ATN 130E. I sent LP Tunes an email asking if this would be an acceptable replacement. Still waiting for that reply. Even though the website had/has (?) multiple 130E listings, this stylus was discontinued. What I finally ended up with was an ATN 120Eb (no 120E's, either), and yes it serves quite well. I don't know what five stars would be; not likely achievable with this cartridge, anyway.

Good replacement

Easy to install, works beautifully

Sound is fantastic

Works perfectly in my vintage Shure M105E cartridge. Sound is warm and balanced. Would recommend this needle and purchases from LP Tunes

Nice but pricey

It works just fine and sounds good, but I have never paid so much for a replacement stylus. Supply and demand I suppose.

Basis 1400 belt

Belt arrived pretty quickly and in good condition. I also appreciate the tone arm alignment card that came in the package.
