Is there a new star shining in the audio sky?
Ortofon Stylus 5e/10/20/30/40 | analogis BLACK DIAMOND. That’s the official name of a reproduction stylus from anaogis. analogis is already known to some for replacement stylis that often exceed the sound of the original needle. And this is exactly where a new product comes from, a replica for the Ortofon needles 5e/10/20/30/40 (also compatible with the 1, 2, 3, 7, 10, 12, 14 and 15, if anyone knows them).
It is a naked black diamond with elliptical cut. Compared to the original needle it plays maybe a bit quieter, according to the distributor, but with the appropriate phono module you should “open your ear”. He continued: in comparison she plays all needle types up to the 20’s “under the table”. My personal opinion.
Well – he may be a bit biased, but so am I, of course. But how does it look with you? Do you feel like testing the needle extensively? Here is an idea:
Test the black
Update 15. 12. : This action is unfortunately now finished, the resonance was impressive.
Many thanks to the numerous testers for the sound samples, photos and technical test reports.
You are great!
Update: analogis will continue to expand the BLACK DIAMOND series and plans to produce the following replacement stylus:
