LP GEAR CFNT4PSE STYLUS
- Music that makes you want to listen.

Listen to the new voice of music. Carbon fiber composites offer 10 times the strength of steel at half the weight. Codeveloped and designed with LP GEAR by Audio-Technica's best engineers, the new Carbon Fidelity T4P Spectra Elliptical (CFNT4PSE) stylus benefits from the latest quality parts and materials technology that includes a carbon fiber cantilever that seriously upgrade performance. The updated design, tight specifications, Twin-Flux magnets, high-quality moving system fulcrum and radial damping ring allied with a Spectra elliptical diamond tip produce music that makes you want to listen.

Existing CFT4PSE cartridge owners will continue to enjoy their elevated sound quality with this stylus. Owners of the AT3472 cartridge and its many models can also elevate sound quality by simply swapping their existing stylus with the CFNT4PSE stylus.

Mastered to illuminate against lofty cartridges the majority of listeners wouldn't encounter, the CFT4PSE touches and endears the more you listen. You won't want to go back to your underperforming or pricey cartridge. You'll hear, feel and sense the music exquisitely rendered harmonically full-bodied, refractive and refreshingly crystal clean with luminous detail spatially radiating with realness. You'll experience remarkable note clarity, projection and nuanced tonal complexity previously unheard and unappreciated. 1

Technics SL-D202

Sounds really good without breaking the bank! Fit my old Audio Technica TM-3 cartridge!

Crisp clean sound

Purchased this after customer support confirmed this stylus would work with my old audio technica cartridge. Also confirmed that this stylus may sound better than the recommended audio technica stylus.
Both needles work well but this stylus does sound a bit better. Crisp, clean sound all around.

A step up from the original stylus

As budget styli go, this is a decent performer. The sound is smooth though not as full as my more expensive cartridge/stylus that I also use. Probably not the fault of the stylus entirely, it is an old budget cartridge.

Nice Upgrade

Replaced the stylus on a 1985 Technics linear tracking turntable. Very noticeable improvement in the sound quality. Very happy with the product. Had forgotten how good vinyl can sound.

Reinvigorated my turntable

Just what I needed to improve the sound.

Fast delivery and good communication

The order arrived in a timely manner, and LP provided good communication throughout the process. It feels good to have a needle that I know is unblemished and I can play my vinyl worry free.

Hard to match what I needed

Bottom Line up front: quick response but some cost for the return and refund.
In spite of having the model number from the Technics manual, the item shipped did not fit. LP Tunes was quick to respond with a return authorization, BUT as warned, I had to pay postage to return the misfit as well as a 15% restocking fee.
I bought the replacement from an obvious and popular source which paid shipping and offered free returns if needed.

Replacement for Sony ND-5G ND5G stylus
Customer (Philadelphia, US)
Sony ND-5G ND5G stylus worked out great

I am restoring a 1983 Sony PS-LX22 turntable and was looking for a reliable and knowledgeable source for a replacement stylus. This Sony model has a head shell that's really hard to find so getting a good cartridge to fit on the one i had was very important. I looked no further than LP Tunes as they really know what they're doing when it comes to matching the right stylus / cartridge to an older head shell. Always happy with them.
