REPLACEMENT FOR PFANSTIEHL 820-D3 820D3 NEEDLE STYLUS

The replacement for the Pfanstiehl 820-D3 820D3 needle stylus features a 3.0 mil polished diamond 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 a world-class manufacturer with a reputation for crafting musically excellent and high-quality replacement styli.

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.

Finding a rare Quad Stylus for Stanton 780-4DQ cartridge

Having a Complete vintage Marantz Quad sound system from the late 70’s . I was needing a stylus for my old Stanton 780 cartridge , it was great to find this rare Stylus on LP tunes store .

Didn't know these existed

Been using my record brush for years. This is much nicer and really helps keep the needle clean.

40 year old stereo

Finding a phono cartridge for my 40 year old stereo was more than I had hoped. But it fits and works just fine. Thinking about getting a more expensive version now that I know it works.

Pioneer PL-203AZ stylus

The replacement stylus fit my turntable just fine.
