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.

    I bought this replacement stylus for my Shure V15 Type 4 cartridge in September 2020. I am very satisfied with the sound quality. My records sound fresh, detailed, yet warm and musical. It is a pleasure to play records again. I am using the cartridge on a Technics SL-1200MK5 turntable. The amplifier I am using is a Rotel RA-1570 and the speakers are by Elipson, type 1303 FT from 1990. I ordered the needle from the JICO website online from the Netherlands, but unfortunately had to pay € 51 extra customs costs. Still, I will order this replacement stylus again next time, despite the extra cost. This replacement stylus makes my Shure V15 Type 4 cartridge sound like new again. Highly recommended if you own a Shure V15 Type 4 cartridge.

    I have been using an SAS stylus with boron cantilever for over a year now. It is everything I hoped it would be and more. It will track anything I own flawlessly, It sounds magnificent, I also have an SAS in my M97xe With a sapphire cantilever. It is great also, but I prefer the boron because it is much more rugged.

    After reading about the SAS product on several audio forums, I decided to give the VN45HE SAS a try. I am truly amazed at the realism of the sound produced by the Shure V15 Type IV with this stylus. The real potential of the cartridge is realized with this stylus. Amazing and absolutely worth the investment. Thank you JICO! I will be ordering more of these in the future for my other cartridges.
