Product Info

- Better sound quality (SQ) from new Version 3.0 standard stylus — NSS

The conical stylus has been long looked down on and disparaged as the ghetto stylus. We, like Art Dudley of Stereophile, like the sound quality of conical tip styli: It offers a raw and simple sound quality. "It emphasizes musical content over air, allowing instruments and voices to sound more substantial, and music to sound, overall, less fussy than with other tip types."

The LP GEAR® NSS stylus is the Version 3.0 standard replacement for the Audio-Technica ATN-3472C ATN3472C stylus. The ATN3472C stylus is used in many phono cartridges and features a bonded conical diamond tip for low-cost and basic sound.

Version 1.0/2.0 vs Version 3.0 For over half a century, the standard way (Version 1.0 and 2.0) 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. The Nude Schwarz stylus (NSS) raises the performance of conicals and all stylus tip types even further! With the NSS edition (Version 3.0), 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.
