This tracks amazing, you do not have to worry about sibilance and distortion, or that you are missing out on anything, great detail but not bright or harsh. Sounds so much smoother and warmer than other brand's great tracking micro line styli I have heard samples of online. I have tried the Jico non-SAS HE, it is very good (maybe even a little more smoother but perhaps sacrificing detail) and also tracks very good, but the SAS is even better. With the HE i was playing around a lot with the HIFi news test lp, with the SAS everything was "passing" immediately. I wish I had had just bought the SAS to begin with, it would have saved me a lot of tinkering thinking I could improve the setup.
