Super Analog Stylus (SAS) Profile Tip
The tip of the Super Analog Stylus 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.
There is NO interchangeability between VN5MR and VN5xMR. Please confirm your cartridge / stylus number and select suitable stylus.

    I have to agree with all the other reviews here. This plays beautifully out of the box, and I only expect it to get better. As with other users, I think this is a better performer than the original. Another pleasant surprise is that the bass has improved punch and extension, which is always welcome. Plays beautifully on my LP12 with a Jelco 750D arm.

    Some appropriate words: brilliant, superb, outstanding, stunning … you get the idea. Better than the Shure original, which was itself very, very good. Installed in an SME 3009/2 improved (fixed headshell) on a Technics SL-120 and feeding a Yamaha A-S3000 into NS-1000Ms = pure magic. If you have the parent cartridge, buy it.

    Installed stylus this evening after work. Excellent! JICO has obtained a customer for life. Made my V body SHURE sound better than it did new.I would recommend JICO to anyone who is serious about the way their vinyl sounds. You are providing a much needed service that is greatly appreciated by me and many others. Keep up the good work.
