Not exactly high end stuff, but very happy to be playing my old albums again !
Considering ordering a 2nd backup stylus, even though with shipping, taxes & exchange rate ... yikes! ... kinda pricey.
The 2016 Akai tt was 'new in box' ... but cost me a case of beer - long story. : )

I didn't open the box it came in

I didn't open the box it it was sent in. I found it cheaper on Amazon and just put the box aside. I thought about returning it but seem to be more trouble than it's worth. The countless emails i've received asking me to review it is a reminder of the mistake i've made.


Stay in the loop with LP Tunes sales, promotions & deals!

This stylus is a perfect fit

The JICO replacement stylus fits fine and sounds nice, as well. I have to imagine it will sound even better after break-in. LP Tunes' excellent service and fast shipping was also very much appreciated.


Prompt delivery to Australia. Easy to fit. Definitely improved my sound.

Haven’t received it

Still waiting for the kneedle haven’t received it . Can you please let me know when it’s coming . Thank you

Solved my Needle woes

I did the local rounds no actual stocks these anymore,after searching online I found LP tunes and I order and my Sony needle came much quicker then I thought it would,since I did not get a tracker..was just loke the orginal and installed in a flash ..now listening to my album collection just like I have over the last 50 yrs...Glad I found a dependable supplier of my stereo products,I look forward to more purchases..

Great Service

Item came kinda slow but otherwise its all good. Price is reasonable

Great selection, fast shipping, quality products.

Recently ordered a Jico neoSAS/S stylus for my Shure V15-III from LP Tunes. Great selection and easy website to navigate.

Upgraded from the original to this and the sound is incredible even in the Retrolife turntable I got it for.
