Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great stylus A replacement stylus for my Pro-Ject Debut II. The 5E works well with old vinyl of varying quality and really comes alive with a good pressing, whether it be old or a new, heavyweight disc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should have done this years ago! I bought my audio equipment, including a Pioneer turntable, about 15 years ago from Richer Sounds. Having a renewed interest in buying and playing vinyl, I decided that I ought to replace the original stylus, even though I was perfectly happy with the quality of the sound I was getting. I’m so glad I did. The improvement in audio quality from the new Ortofon 5e is really remarkable, and I now play my vinyl more frequently than CDs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone service!! I needed to spend a gift voucher which was going to expire within a few weeks, due to the ongoing nightmare of Covid restrictions. The chap I spoke to couldn't have been more helpful and even put a note on the remaining money on my gift voucher, so it would be honoured at a later date. Top notch service, oh and the stylus is awesome as well, but this I expected as I've been shopping with Richer Sounds for over 30 years, so know I can trust both their advice and their products. Keep up the good work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect replacement stylus Exact replacement stylus for my project turntable. Has made all the difference as you don't realise how bad the existing stylus had got

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A new stylus a new sound It’s rare to change the stylus but when you do, the sound is greatly improved. I had been putting it off as they are not cheap. Richer Sounds were the best value and the whole purchase was prompt and hassle free. They are a company that appear to love what they do and they do it very well

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thoroughly recommend I bought this as a replacement for my pro-ject turntable. I’m embarrassed to say it’s the first time I’ve replaced it since I bought the turntable about 15 years ago but I think it probably lasted a good 10 years before any noticeable reduction in quality. Of course it does depend on usage, and this presumably just fits the specific ortofon cart but changing was easy, came very safely packaged and was cheaper from RS than any other dealer

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Starter Stylus, sounds good I broke my stylus during set up of turntable, got this as the like for like replacement, delivery was quick - the sound is good - but this is an entry level piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Swift delivery, great product! I ordered a replacement stylus (Ortofon 5E) from Richer Sounds recently, and am very pleased with both the timely delivery and the product itself. Reasonably priced and perfectly acceptable for any compatible player, it should prove more than satisfactory to most sets of ears.
