SUPER ANALOGUE STYLUS REPLACEMENT FOR SHURE N97XE NEEDLE STYLUS

The JICO SAS replacement for the Shure N97xE needle stylus is used with the Shure M97xE phono cartridge. The stylus elevates the above phono 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 cantilever is made of special aluminum alloy tube and boron for extremely efficient transmission of vibrations. Rare earth metals with excellent electromagnetic conductivity compose the magnet for the stylus.

  1. Compatible with wider and deeper grooves (Micro Groove).
    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.
  2. Ultra precision thinness and configuration results in supreme sound reproduction.
    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.
  3. Reduced distortion caused by needle abrasion.
    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!
  4. Polished finish that virtually preserves your record's grooves.
    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.
  5. Extreme quality testing with emphasis on performance.
    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.

Makes LP's sound great again

I have about 20 different MM cartridges. Each sound different. The Shure 97xE was easy to listen to but lacking in upper frenquencys. This Stylus raised the voltage output level, frequency response and sound quality. No inner grove distortion that I can detect. I'ts mounted to a vintage Technics SL1700. I'm using with the brush down at 1.7 grams.Never thought the 97xE could sound so good.

Simply Amazing

I set my M97xE and had never cared for the sound. Ordered this at suggestion of a overwhelming number of forum members. I took my TT, a fully restored Sony PS-X55, to a local vintage audio tech and he set it all up. The sound? See the title Simply Amazing.

Love the sound

Excellent upgrade to my Shure Cartridge. My system has never sounded better. I notice the improvement in both the high end and the low end. Warm and punchy across the spectrum. Love it!

Great upgrade for the sure M97xe

The sas is an aswsome upgrade to the sure cartridge. Normally the 97xe lacks just a little bit of detail in the high end and can get a little sloppy in the low-end. The SAS fixes this completely. Better imaging , as well as nicely detailed highs, and absolutly perfect tracackablity. Very impressed. Fyi yoy have to keep the stylus and records very clean, the tip of this stylus is much more prone to damage and abrasions from dirt and dust in the grooves.

Excellent Stylus

A bit brighter and cleaner than the original Shure stylus. Much less veiling than before. Tracks much better and did wonders to virtually eliminate inner groove distortion. Excellent purchase.
