SUPER ANALOGUE STYLUS REPLACEMENT FOR SHURE VN5MR NEEDLE STYLUS

The Super Analogue Stylus replacement for the Shure VN5MR stylus is used with the Shure V15 Type V, Shure V15V, Shure V15VMR, Shure V15 V-P, Shure VST-V VST V, and Shure ULTRA 500 phono cartridges. The stylus elevates these phono cartridges to their pinnacle of performance and sound quality. The SAS stylus 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. Ultraprecision 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 ultraprecision, the stylus tip ensures unsupassed 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.

Please note: The Shure VN5MR stylus is not designed to be used with the Shure V15 VxMR phono cartridge. For the Shure V15 VxMR phono cartridge, you need the Shure VN5xMR stylus.

Problem solved

Have had issue with speed (45rpm) when starting to play a 33rpm. The belt is the culprit. Thought it was switch. Compared new belt to old and can certainly tell it was stretched. Shipping was sent right away. Glad they had it, Thanks guys.

Terrific customer service

I had terrific customer service, I was trying to switch out a part on a turntable, switching out a DJ straight tonearm for an s-shaped tonearm. Wasn't sure it was going to work they offered to let me send it back if it didn't. It worked great. They returned several phone calls and made every attempt to answer my questions. Thank you!

I also purchased a new cartridge a CF 95 SE and was not sure about the carbon fiber cantilever. They answered all my questions the cartridges is absolutely outstanding I love it!

LP Tunes is definitely recommended. Thank you!
