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!!
