REPLACEMENT FOR AKAI RS-85 RS 85 RS85 STYLUS

The original manufacturer replacement for the Akai RS-85 RS85 stylus is used with the Akai PC-85 PC85 phono cartridge. The stylus features a highly polished conical diamond for long playing life and good rendition of voice and music. The stylus is precision manufactured in Japan.

The color of the stylus varies. Please compare with your stylus and use this as a guide only since the cartridge and stylus may have been changed through the years.

Do not order the above stylus if it looks different from what you have or your stylus is missing. Instead, look at the info and marking on the existing cartridge and stylus and provide these to us. We need the brand and model number. Photos will also be helpful.

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.

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.
