Stylus Review

Very pleased with this replacement stylus. It’s great to listen to the old LP collection that hasn’t been played in years. Thanks, LP TUNE’s !!!

Alan Wisthoff (Chicago, US)

I'm very happy with the JICO stylus. It sounds so much better than the original Shure stylus, there's no comparison. As far as LP Tunes, don't expect an answer to any emails you may send them.

Great Memories

I refurbished an old Sony PS-X6 turntable and this stylus was the icing on the cake. My record collection had been in storage for 20+ years and I am enjoying listening once again to some oldies but goodies, in particular a few direct to disc recordings. The combination of an upgraded amp, speakers and now this stylus has produced spectacular sound for all ranges and put me back in the audiophile camp. I will give my I-pod, I-pad, Mac, I-tunes, Spotify etc. a rest for a while.

JICO from LP Tunes is the best. I wish there was more info on the diamond I bought but it works out fine. I chose a non SAS to help minimize track noise and it seems to work fine. V15 IV customer

Have not received my item!

I have not to date received my stylus, despite repeated communication of the same to you...thought this was a response to my latest communication but still another request to do this review of your service...so the service, with the exception of you having the item I wanted and you receiving my funds for the same item, has been terrible so send me the stylus and we can upgrade you to poor considering I am still able to my beloved music with my original stylus.

It took over 24 day to get the correct stylus but we are happy with the correct stylus.

Great sound

Trebles, bass, mids all excellent. Had a hard time setting it up because the tracking angle needed to be just about spot on for excellent reproduction. Once that was figured out, voila!

Outstanding replacement stylus. I've had the Shure V15xMR cartridge for years. Have tried other cartridges but always returned the Shure back in to my system.

Good Customer Service

Haven't needed to use the brush, yet, but the stylus needle LP Tunes helped me pick out for my vintage stereo works great!

Great service

Fantastic belt and great service, got it quickly and is exactly what I was looking for!
