Shure N55E Type Stylus for Shure M55 Cartridge

"DEM" = .2 X .7 Diamond Elliptical tip needle

The JICO brand name aftermarket option, made in JAPAN, is a highly polished bonded diamond.
Genuine JICO brand* 0.3 x 0.7 mil (mid-level)  elliptical diamond 1.0 - 2 grams tracking pressure.

OEM    Shure N55E  0.2 x 0.7 mil (high end)    elliptical diamond 0.75 - 2 grams tracking pressure.
From Shure M55 cartridge owner's manual:

"The lowest tracking force can only be realized if used in fine arms ....such as the Shure-SME Arm."

* JICO color may vary


Elliptical needles have more efficient contact with the surface of the record than a conical tip.
Original needle color is usually: YELLOW
16, 33 or 45rpm LP's, NOT for 78rpm
Replaces: N-55E  VN2E
Used In: Shure M55 cartridge
Can also fit: Shure M55 M80 M98A V15 type I
NOTE: Because this needle is designed for use specifically with SHURE cartridges, it can be found in numerous brands of turntables. In some cases the cartridges for this needle may be original equipment supplied with a new turntable, but was also likely to have been selected at time of sale to complete a turntable sold without a cartridge or later as an upgrade to the original cartridge supplied by the turntable manufacturer. This needle should be matched primarily to the SHURE cartridge type not necessarily the turntable.

BUYER BEWARE! We are noticing "cheap" versions of this needle around the internet from 2nd tier vendors who's regular practice is to copy (steal) our copyrighted descriptions and carefully acquired cross reference data and sometimes sell an inferior product as if it were the same as ours but cheaper. We believe this is one such case of many.   In our buying experience around the world, the universal mark manufacturers around the world have come to adopt to signify that a tip is indeed elliptical, is a black dot on the aluminum cantilever to differentiate it from the entry-level conical tip or high end cuts. This black dot supersedes the color of the plastic grip for the purpose of indicating the tip type.  Since as of this writing Dec. 2010 the dot does not exist in the images these vendors provide we must conclude they are providing an entry-level conical tip in an elliptical-colored plastic body.  (yellow in this case).  Or, that they are selling an entry level elliptical (0.4 x 0.7 mil, probably unpolished tip) from a manufacturer that does not adhere to the international "black dot" standard as we call it.  An unpolished diamond tip will have an orange peel appearance under 60x magnification. Eventually an unpolished tip does become polished......at your expense, as it is played on your irreplaceable vinyl.

Item was exactly what I wanted and it arrived very promptly here in France. If anyone wants anything to do with turntables, look no further.
