Sanyo MG-50 upgrade?

Postby BARON ROJO » 20 Mar 2018 16:49

Hello, I want to buy a needle for a Sanyo MG-50 cartridge. Does anyone know of any option to improve the result? Any needle that is elliptical ?. Thank you.
Any opinion is welcome I do not know this cartridge. Greetings.

Buenos días.

I've had seen, that JICO has listed a SAS replacement needle (the first version with boron cantilever) on their Japanese website.

Sanyo ST-50D SAS

This would be the best available stylus for this cartridge (and maybe the only one with a more advanced stylus shape?).

If you are not familiar with the SAS ("Super Analog Stylus"- identic to the audio-technica Microline® stylus) here are some informations: JICO SAS stylus

Best regards.

Vielen Dank, mein Freund.

But I have other more interesting capsules where to spend the money of a Jico SAS :D. I was thinking about something cheaper, an elliptical Jico would have been fantastic, I have researched and that option does not seem to exist. I'll buy a conic. Cheers and thank you again. :D
