NSS UPGRADE REPLACEMENT FOR PFANSTIEHL 213-D6 213D6 NEEDLE STYLUS
The LP Gear NSS stylus is the Version 2.0 replacement for the Pfanstiehl 213-D6 213D6 needle stylus (an Audio-Technica ATN-3472C
ATN3472C stylus) at practically no additional cost. It is used in many phono cartridges under private label and installed in many
turntables. The ATN-3472C ATN3472C stylus features a highly polished conical diamond for long playing life and good rendition of voice and music.
Version 1.0 vs Version 2.0
For over half a century, the standard way (Version 1.0) to craft a stylus is to bond the stylus tip to a crown (metal shank) that in turn is bonded to the cantilver.
The additional mass, and a different material element in between the diamond tip and cantilever, cause some loss of nuance in transmitting groove modulation from the tip to the cantilever.
With the Schwarz edition (Version 2), a nude diamond stylus (a whole diamond) is inserted, fastened and/or glued directly to the
cantilever - banishing the need for the crown (metal shank).
Thus, you can hear higher fidelity and exhilirating sound quality in every NSS stylus that you install in your cartridge! The unencumbered
polycrystallin diamond tip (for toughness and longer-playing life) directly traces the grooves for optimal retrieval of record groove modulation.
