.:JICO Brand HyperElliptial Stylus for Shure VN5xMR:.

JICO HyperElliptical "VN5xHE" diamond needle for the Shure VN5xMR for the Shure V15 type V15xMR cartridge. 
Ordering this part will net you a JICO HyperElliptical VN5x. It is a true Hyper Elliptical tip not originally offered by Shure at the time. JICO has been in continuous operation making needles for over 50 years.  So, you can be confident, as we are, that this will do your prized Shure V15VxMR cartridge justice.



ONLY compatible with Shure V15 cartridges & needles that have an x in the part number.

Each "VN5xHE" we receive in bulk Jico packaging is carefully re-inspected and securely individually packed in t-tn's tough snap boxes under the direct supervision and training of our senior technician.


Replaces or is found in:

Original needle color is: MAROON guard/BLACK body
top secret crosses: Can also fit the V15-Pro-S, VST-III, and the Radio Shack V15-RS
See the M78S needle below to play 78rpm in your V15VxMR

1.25 - 2.0 grams tracking pressure (OPTIMUM = 1.75) with stabilizer DOWN.
Shure M97XE specs here

This hyperelliptical tipped needle made by Jico will transform any compatible cartridge with a lesser-equipped stylus into a high end playback solution capable of exceptionally faithful, clear and true sound reproduction.


This stylus is designed for the V15VxMR and can also be an upgrade for the M97xE cartridge. Note however that the M97xE body is not quite the same (internally/electrically) as the V15VxMR body so this will not upgrade the M97xE to the exact same level as the V15VxMR cartridge mounted with the VN5xMR stylus was.  It will, however be a very significant improvement.



Rating Improved Performance on M97xE
 
I purchased the 77x3-DHE as a replacement for the stock Shure stylus on the M97xE. It upgraded the performance of the cartridge significantly and essentially eliminated inner groove distortion. Turntableneedles.com handled the order quickly and professionally and promptly answered all my questions.

This is the real deal. Brought new life to my old beloved V15 RS (V15 type V), one of the best, most underrated cartridges of all time. Sounds great at much less than directly from JICO. Using on a Linn BasiK Plus. What a match!

I installed this stylus in an acquired Shure VST-III P cartridge. I'm pleased with the overall sound and it's ability to extract detail from a record. It makes me happy I bought the cartridge it resides in, and it shows me why the cartridge deserves it's reputation.

The m97xe is already a very good cartridge, I've used 2 genuine stylus before But with this stylus its a marvell The stage is larger and deeper and all the frequencies are perfect There is a lot of precision Its seems to need no breakin Its sad to listen a CD after that,even with a topend player My next purchase will be the shibata or a SAS,if the price is lower!!

Best stylus I have ever used in a long experience with hifi. Better than previous stylus that cost more. Rediscovering my old vinyl collection as a result. I highly recommend this stylus.

Q: The "hyperelliptical" JICO stylus for the V15xMR, does it use the same boron cantilever and modern body as the JICO Type 5 replacement stylus, just not an SAS? I am thinking it will be equivalent to the VNSE3HE, so it will fit the V15RS and V15XMR with the larger shank. Providing excellent performance for not so perfect vinyl. Please advise.
Asked by:  - 6/22/2014
A: This version has an alloy cantilever.

Q: My Kenwood KD-5070 is rocking the Shure M97xE cartridge, do I need to align using my alignment protractor if I upgrade the stylus to the 77z3-DHE?
