LP GEAR 78 RPM REPLACEMENT FOR ION iCT06RS
The LP Gear 78 RPM replacement for the Ion iCT06RS stylus features
a 3.0 mil polished diamond designed specifically for the correct
tracing of the wide grooves of 78 RPM records. It results in minimal
groove wear and accurate rendition of voice and music.
A very common misconception is that you can use an LP stylus for
playing 78 RPM records. This is one quick and sure way to damage
the 78 RPM record grooves. To maintain the playback fidelity of
your 78 record, you really need to use a stylus designed for 78
RPM records, otherwise with just a single playing, you could ruin
the fidelity of the record grooves. Moreover, the LP stylus is
much narrower than the 78 RPM record groove hence the tip will
slide to the bottom of the groove where debris has collected for
many decades. This results in extraordinarily high-surface noise.
Do not order this stylus if it looks
different from what you have. It will not fit if the original cartridge
is missing or has been changed. Please contact us if you need assistance
or prefer a new cartridge. If possible, provide us with the markings
on the existing cartridge and stylus (look for the brand and model
number). Photos will be helpful.
