I ordered this as a replacement for my R5x Shure/Realistic R47edt stylus. It certainly sounds at least as good as the R8x that I’d been using. A great combination giving a flatter response than the traditional Shure sound, much more subtle on a good performing system. I’ll buy it again, when it’s time is up!
