Took a while to get my shure n447 stylus wish it would be a little more faster on shipping

Great stylus if you use M447

This is a great replacement stylus for the Shure M447. It's just as good as the original Shure and even includes a guard for the needle. The Shure M447 is a great cartridge and this stylus will serve you very well in your vinyl playing or Djing. Peace and always follow the light. Shun the darkness.

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.
