REPLACEMENT FOR STANTON D-5127 D5127 STYLUS (78 RPM STYLUS)
The LP Gear replacement for the Stanton D-5127 D5127
stylus is used with all Stanton 500 series cartridges and RS500DJ cartridges. The 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. The stylus is made in Japan by a world-class manufacturer
with a reputation for crafting musically excellent and high-quality replacement styli.
To remove the V-Guard simply grasp the plastic housing between the tips of the thumb and forefinger and pull gently. Although the stylus assembly is sturdily constructed, it is as vulnerable to phsical damge as any other precision instrument. Please handle it carefully when removing and replacing it.
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.
You recently sent me a replacement 78 RPM stylus for
Stanton 500. I am just writing to say that, after
testing, I am very pleased with it, and I have just
followed your advice and ordered a spare. With thanks,
