IMPROVED STYLUS FOR TEAC GF-550 GF 550 GF550 TURNTABLE

The Teac GF-550 GF 550 GF550 turntable was fitted with a Teac needle stylus. A photo of the stylus replacement is supplied above. The stylus features a highly polished conical diamond for long playing life and good rendition of voice and music. The color of the stylus varies. Please verify and use this as a guide only since the cartridge and stylus may have been changed through the years.

If the stylus above differs from what you have, then it means you no longer have the fitted cartridge. For us to assist you further, we need the cartridge brand and model number. This info is usually inscribed on the cartridge and stylus.

I am becoming an audiophile snob.

After having purchased a Pickering xsv3000 cartridge from The Auction Site, I finally decided to purchase a stylus for it. My musical listening tastes have changed over the years I have now realized. This stylus and cartridge combo presents more of a house party sound ....loud, deep bass, and extreme highs. I now desire a more mellow non fatiguing sound. I want to hear all the details and space and separation on my records. My ears have matured and I want to hear the performance in the sound not just over emphasized bass and treble. I have removed this combo from my turntable. This is not a knock against the stylus more so just an evolution in my expectations of what I expect out of my music presentation.

My personal take

This stylus is too bright in my opinion. It does not replicate the shure sound. Details are lost with this stylus also. I have aligned this cartridge three times after installing this stylus to no avail. Honestly, I am not a fan. I have reinstalled my Shure stylus. I heard so many good things about the SAS stylus but it does not do it for my ears.

Quite satisfying

I purchased this stylus on sale as a replacement for an MF1 cartridge I previously purchased on an auction site. From the off it played with warmth, detail, clarity, and dynamics that I was not expecting. It is getting even better as it breaks in. I can't imagine how the highly-touted 8MZ must sound.

Top Notch Headshell!

I mounted my Stanton 681EEE with a VividLine stylus (which is also amazing! See my review) to this headshell, and they seem like the combination was made for each other. The adjustable azimuth on this headshell made setting up the VividLine stylus much easier and with the precision needed. The lead wires that comes with this headshell are of the utmost quality litz wires, and make a noticeable difference in the playback of your beloved vinyl records. Small things like the finger lift on it make it a joy to use and cue up. The overall quality of this headshell is absolutely top notch and highly recommended for those looking to get the most out of their analog music experience through vinyl!
