Perfect replacement

I needed a replacement stylus for two of my cartridges. This is a perfect fit for my AT96E cartridge..

Excellent sound and excellent price partnered with my old AT4030LC.

My Pioneer PL-7 and Audio-Technica AT4030LC from the early 80's needed a new stylus. I initially replaced the entire cartridge but didn't enjoy the sound as much as the original with the now very expensive ATN12S stylus. After referring to various reference materials I decided to replace the original stylus with the LP Gear ATN12XE. LP Gear shipped almost immediately and I received the stylus in a few days. It took all of 30 seconds to replace the stylus, and maybe another minute to check the tracking force and anti-skate. Results: a wonderful stylus! There is a slight loss of the very top of the high end (the original shibata stylus is rated up to 45 Khz) but the new stylus is punchy with clear highs. Tracking at 1.25g the cart tracks quietly and fully. Looks like the old cart will stay in business for at least another year or so. Why replace the entire moving magnet cartridge when you only need a new stylus?

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.
