Perfect for my collection of 78s

I came into over 100 78 rpm records but had no way to play them. I was able to convert my Technics SL-1900 to run at 78 but still needed a proper cartridge and stylus.

Found this offering at LP Tunes and it was just perfect. A highly regarded Audio Technica cartridge with the 3 mil stylus already included. And at a very attractive price.

I received my order very quickly and mounted the cartridge with excitement to hear those old records (some as early as 1905)

The cartridge tracks perfectly even through some rough spots and small cracks. It sounds great on the later (48-58) recordings and you can even hear the oldest ones clearly.

A perfect solution for listening to the old recordings. Thanks LP Tunes.

Pickering PDE Stylus

This stylus worked perfectly with the Pickering cartridge mounted on a Lafayette T-2000 turntable. Thank you for your service on this difficult to find part.

PERFECTION for Shure V15V-P!!!

After 25 years, I decided to resurrect my old Technics SL-D30 turntable from the attic. It has a Shure V15V-P (P-mount) that I bought in 1984. It still sounds good, but it just seems as if something is missing. Granted, my ears are not what they used to be, but I felt it was time to replace the 40-year-old stylus anyway. Since Shure is no longer made, I was leery if any other brand would work or sound good in the old cartridge. Thankfully, I came across JICO. After contemplating if I should get the boron cantilever (SAS/B) or the Sapphire (SAS/S), I decided to spend the extra money for the sapphire. It arrived in 3 days and fit perfectly into the Shure cartridge. When I played the first song, I gasped! Wow, just WOW!!!!! I am lost for words to describe the sound. The treble, mids, and bass are equal and exceptional. The realism, clarity, and sound stage are utter perfection! I am hearing so many sounds that I never heard before. The unbelievable quality actually brought me to tears on certain nostalgic songs. This stylus is far better than the original one that was supplied with the V15V-P. I am so glad I decided to keep my old Shure cartridge. THANK YOU, JICO for making an outstanding upgrade!!
