- So you'll know when its time... to replace your stylus.
Would you want a car without an odometer?
Then you won’t want a turntable without a StylusTimer
Created by syndicated Sound Advice columnist Don Lindich, StylusTimer (US and international patents pending) is a special chronograph designed, programmed and manufactured for use with turntables. With StylusTimer, users can easily and precisely track stylus hours. Once you have a StylusTimer, you won’t know how you ever lived without it. The importance of tracking stylus use: Most turntable owners know the stylus (needle) of a phono cartridge takes a certain amount of time to break-in and has a total lifespan of a thousand hours or so, depending on the cartridge model and how it has been used. But few if any turntable owners know precisely how many hours are on their stylus because there was never an easy and convenient way to track it.
Now there is - with StylusTimer.
⚬ Protect your records
A worn stylus not only reduces sound quality, it can permanently damage your record collection. With Stylus Timer you will know when it's time to replace your stylus, preserving your valuable records.
