THE VESSEL R3SV CARTRIDGE 
- So much more than just music.

The R defines itself and its users as those who transcend the vulnerability of success, advance their intellect and sentience, extend their humanity and exceed their personal best. For the user, the R3SV is a synergistic choice.

With its hardness and soundspeed, Ruby has far higher sensitivity to stimuli from groove modulations. The refined cylindrical Ruby cantilever in the R3SV discovers and transmits more material from groove modulations, more energy sheltered within record grooves thus conveying more inspired sentience and realism.

The stylus I received works well and the service was great!

Just what I needed

I bought not one but 2 Shure styluses (styli?) out of fear they won’t be available next time I need a replacement. Hassle free and no complaints.

Fantastic Replacement

Bought for a pickering XV-15/625e cartridge that had a broken stylus. Easy to install, fits perfectly! Played a few different albums to get a feel for it, performs in the same range as my Ortofon 2M silver. Brush works great (there are reviews on other replacements that say take the brushes off/use the original but this works fine). Tracking set at 1.5 g.

Turns out the green lead was broke on the cartridge. I removed the cartridge from the head shell to make repairs. Now it does not sound as good. It’s possible I don’t have the tracking adjusted properly.

Great Service

Sorry, but it isn't the correct one for my turntable. There's no way for it to fit. ;-(. That wasn't your fault. We went by the number on the machine since I didn't have the original. But you offer a great service and the shipping was fast. I may try again later. Thanks.
