ADC RZL stylus

Good needle. But Jico's same needle is better.

I remember that tone

Have 2 vintage ADC mark 2's that needed a stylus, the rzl replacement made me go "oh yeah that the ticket" back in use and sounding better than ever. The RZL was a good choice and arrived fast. Gotta go flip a record, LP tune a great solution

Robert C (West Bloomfield, US)
ADC RZL Vivid Line

This stylus brought my ADC XLm II to full life. It always sounded great, but this gave it noticeably more detail and better bottom end vs the fine sounding ADC214I I have been using. Highly recommended. Great match with my ADC 1700 turntable.

Bestbuy for ADC QLM

Runs with an NOS ADC Qlm 30 Mk 3 cartridge with an Rega Arm RB 300 on a Rega Planar 3 deck. Not as dynamic as Qlm 30 original needle, but much more resolution (Opera texts in Italian understandable), more highs ( these never going sharp), controlled bass, 3d like spacious room, very low surface noise from the records, no IGDs. This combination is a very fine audiophile alternative to high priced cartridges.

Replacement for ADC RZL stylus

Good, but could be better. Cantilever on an angle out of the box. Straightens out some once mounted. Make sure to align the cantilever not the grip with your protractor. Why not have a nude diamond instead of bonded. Doesn't have the refined fit or appearance of an original xlm stylus. Make them the same in every way as an original, then it's 5 stars. At least makes these adc xlm cartridges useable again. The sound is very good, highly detailed, a bit lacking in base. I would recommend and buy again. Received a week ago, not 28 days ago as they said in their email.

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!!
