REPLACEMENT FOR PFANSTIEHL 213-D3 213D3 78 RPM NEEDLE STYLUS (78 RPM STYLUS)

The replacement for the Pfanstiehl 213-D3 213D3 needle stylus features a 3.0 mil polished diamond mounted on an aluminum cantilever. It is designed specifically for the correct tracing of the wide grooves of 78 RPM records. It results in minimal groove wear and accurate rendition of voice and music. The stylus is made in Japan by one of the most reputable and highest quality replacement stylus manufacturers in the world.

A very common misconception is that you can use an LP stylus for playing 78 RPM records. This is one quick and sure way to damage the 78 RPM record grooves. To maintain the playback fidelity of your 78 record, you really need to use a stylus designed for 78 RPM records, otherwise with just a single playing, you could ruin the fidelity of the record grooves. Moreover, the LP stylus is much narrower than the 78 RPM record groove hence the tip will slide to the bottom of the groove where debris has collected for many decades. This results in extraordinarily high surface noise.

Replacement for Pickering D-8E D8E stylus

Amazing product

Nothing much to add, I don't think an LP60X and an Edifier 1280T setup is probably not good enough to hear the sound quality difference, but the stylus upgrade seems less likely to skip on more beaten up records and that's good enough for me.
