S.A.S Super Analogue Stylus Capturing the charm of analog sound.
Challenging the limitations of tracing.
This is the ideal stylus realized with the best technologies.
  1. Compatible with wider and deeper grooves (Micro Groove).
    Carefully chosen natural octahedron single-crystals are used for the diamond tip. Can also be used on records with 30-280 micron grooves opposed to the simple conventional 30-80 micron.
  2. The secret to accurate regeneration is its thinness and configuration.
    Its main attribute is not only the consistency found in the few microns of width and height, but the unique finishing touches that preserve the high precision. We have realized a curvature with a smaller radius that was impossible with the Micro Ridge Stylus.
  3. Reduce strain and noise caused by needle abrasion.
    Outstanding abrasion resistance that does not taper or thicken. Since the curvature radius does not change, the stylus accurately traces without missing any delicate signals. In particular, the accuracy demanded of the curvature radius in the reproduction of the upper register range of the record’s inner circumference, demonstrates its capabilities such as its extensive dynamic noise range.
  4. Polishing technique that does not damage the record.
    We practice an advanced polishing technique used by well known domestic and international cartridge makers. This will preserve the record groove for longer periods.

  1. Natural single crystal octahedron diamond tip used for stylus tip.
  2. Boron is used for its large oscillation transmission effect.
  3. Rare Earth Magnet is a scarce metal optimal for electromagnetic induction.
  4. Adopted the One Point System. Pursuit precise technologies that reproduce all micro vibrations from the stylus tip and prevent distortion.
  5. Carefully assembled piano wire 0.06mm in diameter one by one under a microscope. Prevent vibration deviation due to misuse.

Review of Super Analogue Stylus
VN35HE Torben Jahnke VN35HE
Great stuff, the SAS stylus for the V15 III simply rules. I had the V15 V XMR at home for a while, but I prefer the combination of the III with this SAS stylus in my Thorens TD160 with SME arm. Worth every penny. Recommended - give it a try.

  1. Always use the S.A.S needle at the recommended tracking force settings (1.25±0.25g). If the stylus pressure is above the recommended range it may ruin or damage the stylus and record and cause poor sound reproduction.
  2. It is important to clean your records and stylus to protect them from abrasion damage caused by dust and debris that have accumulated on records or that have adhered to the stylus tip.
  3. Take precautious not to allow anything to come into contact with the stylus that will cause damage.
  4. To determine when to replace your stylus you should take the various playing conditions into consideration. On average the stylus lasts two or three times longer (about 500 hours) than the average diamond tip stylus.
