JICO SAS/S REPLACEMENT FOR SHURE VN5MR VN-5MR VN 5MR STYLUS

The SAS/S (Sapphire) replacement for the Shure VN5MR stylus elevates the cartridge to its pinnacle performance and sound quality. The SAS tips are produced using a natural octahedral single-crystal diamond with the most advanced electronic engineering technology. The neoSAS/S replaces the previous SAS boron cantilever with a crystalline sapphire cantilever.  Rare earth metals with excellent electromagnetic conductivity compose the magnet for the stylus.

SAS Stylus Line Contact Stylus Elliptical Stylus Conical Stylus
  1. Compatible with wider and deeper grooves (Micro Groove).
  2. The diamond tip consists of a meticulously selected natural single-crystal octahedron. Precision work on the crystal allows for a wide range of grooves. The Super Analogue Stylus can safely be used on recent records which tend to have deeper grooves and with 30-280 micron grooves opposed to the simple conventional 30-80 micron.
  3. Ultra precision thinness and configuration results in supreme sound reproduction.
  4. The stylus tip is of optimum height and a uniformly ultra-precision finish. The Super Analogue Stylus has a curvature with a smaller radius that was impossible with the Micro Ridge Stylus. As thin as a razor blade and machined with ultra precision, the stylus tip ensures unsurpassed fidelity.
  5. Reduced distortion caused by needle abrasion.
  6. The Super Analogue Stylus tip eliminates lateral and frontal abrasion. Since the curvature radius does not change, the stylus accurately traces without missing any delicate signals. This makes it perfect for reproducing high frequencies and wide dynamic range which require a highly precise radius for tracking the inner record grooves!
  7. Polished finish that virtually preserves your record's grooves.
  8. World-class polishing technique is used on each stylus. This is designed to preserve the details of the record groove structure for a very long time virtually for the life of the vinyl.
  9. Extreme quality testing with emphasis on performance.
  10. Stringent quality inspections and tests using unique and high level technology are performed on all materials and at every level from the manufacture of parts that transmit vibrations to the cartridge (the cantilever, magnet and wire) to the final assembly by skilled artisans.

Outstanding service - great product line

I'm thrilled my Shure V15 Type V cartridge lives on with the JICO neoSAS/S replacement stylus. This cartridge/stylus combo can be astoundingly beautiful or relentlessly truthful...This is the best mix of cartridge and stylus for a low mass tonearm (or as I like to say, a no mass tonearm, like mine) The fit and finish of the stylus is top notch. My old stylus is too worn to compare back to back with the JICO, but I gotta say, it's the best combo for reproducing the human voice regardless of the style of music. It's just natural sounding. If you've got an old Shure V15 kicking around, get yourself the JICO replacement stylus.

Outstanding service from LP Tunes. Ordered the stylus on Friday and the package was delivered on Monday...clear across the country. All Good

Great Stylus and Great Service

The new JICO stylus for an Empire LTD200 sounds great! The LP Tunes Team worked with me to identify and promptly send the perfectly fit. I plan to keep LP Tunes at the top of my list for all turntable needs.

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

Old Sanyo needle

Ordered it got the correct needle within a week listened to my records the next day. Great service here just wish I could have afforded to order a couple needles but I'm listening to my music again so until the next needle save up money. Thank you for great service!

The stylus I received works well and the service was great!

Just what I needed

I bought not one but 2 Shure styluses (styli?) out of fear they won’t be available next time I need a replacement. Hassle free and no complaints.

Fantastic Replacement

Bought for a pickering XV-15/625e cartridge that had a broken stylus. Easy to install, fits perfectly! Played a few different albums to get a feel for it, performs in the same range as my Ortofon 2M silver. Brush works great (there are reviews on other replacements that say take the brushes off/use the original but this works fine). Tracking set at 1.5 g.
