SUPER ANALOGUE STYLUS REPLACEMENT FOR SHURE VN35HE NEEDLE STYLUS
The JICO SAS replacement for the Shure VN35HE needle stylus is used with the Shure V15 Type III 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.

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.
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.
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!
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.
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.

First I was reluctant to order a Shure VN35HE JICO SAS as I read some cons reviews on other sites. I decided to try one and got it in few days… The sound was so good I did not want to make any changes in my tonearm setup. After a few days I finally did and the sound was outstanding; deep, clear, well balanced; perfect highs, good mids and very smooth and detailed bass. I understand hifi performance is a matter of personal taste and that the lower your performance is a small investment will give you high improvements, on the other hand for a high performance setup a big investment will only give you a small improvement.
In this case a good improvement that worth every penny!
This tracks amazing, you do not have to worry about sibilance and distortion, or that you are missing out on anything, great detail but not bright or harsh. Sounds so much smoother and warmer than other brand's great tracking micro line styli I have heard samples of online. I have tried the Jico non-SAS HE, it is very good (maybe even a little more smoother but perhaps sacrificing detail) and also tracks very good, but the SAS is even better. With the HE i was playing around a lot with the HIFi news test lp, with the SAS everything was "passing" immediately. I wish I had had just bought the SAS to begin with, it would have saved me a lot of tinkering thinking I could improve the setup.
Incredible stylus replacement. I'm hearing sounds I've not heard before and with better dynamics. Better than original.
This is just what you need to get a new life out of a Shure V15, highly recommended!
Great replacement stylus... would purchase again
