SUPER ANALOGUE STYLUS REPLACEMENT FOR Shure VN5MR VN-5MR VN 5MR STYLUS

The JICO SAS 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 cantilever is made of special aluminum alloy tube and boron for extremely efficient transmission of vibrations. A single strand of ultra-fine piano wire is attached to the cantilever to stabilize the movement of the magnet and reduce distortion from resonance. Rare earth metals with excellent electromagnetic conductivity compose the magnet for the 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.

Great Product

My Shure VST-V was was getting a little clouded and surface noise was up on old records - all signs the stylus was not what it once was - time for a new one - the life is back in the music!

New life for a classic cartridge

I purchased this stylus to replace a nearly 15 year old JICO SAS Vn5mr and a newer LP Gear Vivid Line (which met an untimely demise) for my Shure V15vmr cartridge that I run on my vintage Pioneer Pl 518 that I bought new in 1977. The old JICO sounded good, the Vivid Line not quite as good, but this new JICO SAS Boron/Aluminum Vn5mr (HG) sounds fantastic. Full bass, crisp, clear mids and highs and great separation for a wide soundstage. A very refined and detailed sound. Sounded great right out of the box, can’t wait for it to “break-in” a bit. Gives me an excuse to listen to more and more records! Thank you LP Tunes for prompt service, shipping and delivery.

Amazing jico vn5mr sas

Could not imaging that I was missing this much of everything with my old stylus. Now more bass, presence, detail, everything!

New Life for Shure V15V

The Shure V15 has always been an even handed, great tracking cart. Perhaps verging on the boring, for some tastes. The JICO SAS styli retain the lush midrange, even handed presentation of the cart, but with a shot of adrenaline and perhaps a tad more revealing than the original styli. Super product!

Very pleased

This is a perfect fit for my Aiwa old school shelf system. My new record sounds great. I was afraid to play it with the old original stylus so I ordered this one. It came supper fast and I am very pleased with my purchase. I would recommend LP Tunes.

Replacement belt on a 30+ year old turntable was easy to find but expensive when adding in shipping and handling.
