Super Analog Stylus (SAS) Profile Tip
The tip of the is carefully chosen from single-crystal natural diamonds. The laser-cut diamond closely resembles that of the cutting stylus used on a cutting lathe to produce the acetate master disks used in vinyl production. This allows the SAS tip to reach into the deepest recesses of the record groove in order to retrieve details which were previously inaccessible to other stylus profiles. Due to its wide contact area with the groove wall, the SAS can reproduce a more expansive bandwidth of information with higher fidelity.
is one of the most suitable materials for cantilevers. its density is low, Young’s modulus is large, and the speed of sound propagation is approximately 2.6 times faster than that of aluminum. Due to the characteristics above, boron cantilever can more precisely trace the information contained in the record grooves than aluminum cantilever.

    Diesen Nadeleinschub im Juli 2014 erhalten. Läuft auf einem Rega 3 mit RB300 Tonarm. Den Höhenausgleich zum Original Rega Tonabnehmer habe ich durch eine Reduktion der Mattenstärke erreicht.
    Nach einer längeren Zeit, um die Euphorie hintanzuhalten, schreibe ich dieses Review. Was alle anderen Vorrezensenten schreiben, ist absolut unglaublich, aber genau so richtig. Es ist sogar die Ausgangsspannung höher, d.h. er ist deutlich lauter als mit der Originalnadel.
    Nachdem ich 40 Jahre lang alle möglichen Tonabnehmer getestet habe quer durch alle Preisklassen, erlaube ich mir folgendes Zusammenfassung: Dieser Shure “Billig”Tonabnehmer in Kombination mit dieser Nadel gehört zu den 20 besten MM Tonabnehmern, die man zur Zeit kaufen kann, unabhängig vom Preis. Er spielt sogar in der Liga der MCs bis etwa 400.- € mit.
    Danke an JICO. Eine sehr gute technische Lösung!

    I realize that spending more on a stylus than originally spent on a cartridge might make you question if the sonic upgrade will be worth it, but the SAS stylus for the Shure M97xE is definitely worth it in my opinion. This stylus really will make your cartridge perform at it’s best. While I enjoyed the original elliptical stylus that came with the cartridge, there seemed to be something missing. The highs seemed to be somewhat veiled. I didn’t even realize what I was missing until I put the SAS stylus on. Wow.. what a difference! The sound is so clear and detailed now. I’m picking up things in recordings that I’ve never noticed before. I had read a lot of reviews before purchasing this stylus, but I really wasn’t prepared for the difference it makes. If you use the Shure M97xE and have considered the SAS stylus I would definitely recommend it. To me it’s well worth the price for such a great upgrade. I’m very happy with it. Thank you Jico.
