It's been up in the 170's since I heard about it, but if the improvement is there over the original shure stylus I might just spend the money. Your input helps.
I just looked up how much the Jico needle was when I bought it. Here are the details. I placed the order on 2/17/2011:
Jico S.A.S replacement for Shure N97xE needle stylus 1 $129.95
Shipping: US Postal Service / UPS Ground within US: $7.98
Sales Tax: $0.00
I'd be curious what ogg is going to do with the crossover too. That's one of the areas Andrew Jones focused heavily on because he mentioned most entry level speakers always have bad crossovers, I'd assume that that is one thing Andrew spent a great deal of time on to make them sound much better than most speakers in their class.
