SUPERB!

My AKG-P8ES was a legendary cartridge, but it was almost impossible to get a new stylus as good as the original. LPTunes solved that problem! The cartridge sings again — detail, nuance, soundstage, it has it all. Fit and finish are impeccable, the stylus fits the body as firmly as the fixed-stylus of a Moving Coil cartridge... and it tracks effortlessly at the original recommended 1g . I couldn't be happier — and I'm ordering styluses for two other cartridges: Stanton 881S and Technics 205CMk4. LPTunes is now my "go to" supplier.

P8ES Needle review

Just received the replacement needle 2 days ago. Sounds great. Original pressure by AKG mentioned between 0.75 to 1.25 gr. The cartridge is installed on a Denon DP-31L turntable with original straight tonearm. When playing form 0.75 to 1.25 gr on brand new Bill Evans trio disk, there was some distortion occurring on loud passages. To get rid of it, I had to increase pressure to 1.75 gr with same amount on anti-skating. Then the piano came crystal clear and bass man huge bass coming out of the cartridge. Extremely pleasant listening with no sign of distress. My only worry is that I hope that going from the maximum stated weight of 1.25 gr to 1.75 gr will not damage the cantilever suspension. Future will tell but this legendary cartridge even after 40 years is still a revelation in sound and space coming out of the vinyl disks.

The service was great it was exactly what I wanted great job

Replacement stylus for pickering dse-1

This is a good replacement for an obsolete stylus i bought years ago for my now obsolete BIC turn table. I'm now able to play some long forgotten LP's from long ago.

Makes a difference

Good wires improve the sound. Worthwhile.

New Record Sleeves

With a number of old and used records, many of the original paper sleeves were deteriorated or missing. I tried the 12" square polyethylene LP Gear sleeves as replacements. They fit very well on the records, easily slipped into the cardboard record jackets, and covered the records closely but were not too clingy. The new sleeves should help my records stay cleaner.

Hi Fidelity!

When I bought this cart I had some Polk Audio RTi A1s it didn't do much for me and thought about selling it, fast forward to present I now have a pair of Dali Sensor 1 and this cart is amazing so for those who don't like the cart maybe it's your speakers I'm glad I hung on to it because I see LP Gear is out of stock.
