SUPER ANALOGUE STYLUS REPLACEMENT FOR SHURE VN5XMR VN-5XMR VN 5XMR STYLUS

The JICO SAS high grade replacement for the Shure VN5xMR 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.

Good stylus but the same as the non HG designated Jico sas

I purchased this stylus after having purchased the non HG designated Jico sas stylus previously. For some reason I expected the HG stylus to provide something different and better regarding sound presentation. There is no diffenerce in sound between the HG sas stylus and the non HG sas stylus at all. It is a good stylus but I was just expecting too much in experiencing a possible sound improvement because of the difference in the designations of the two Jico sas styli.

Signet Cart gets a new lease on life

My early 1980's Signet cartridge was matched with an ATN-100E stylus. All of my questions were answered quickly and accurately. The LP Tunes folks made the upgrade much easier than I anticipated. Great place to do business.

Stylus needle worked and fit great

Was happy to find this vendor for my old Sanyo turntable. Needed a new stylus needle and their website showed me with pictures and explanation that this was the right needle for my turntable. Very happy with the purchase and was shipped quickly.
