Hi Srinivasan,
My experience with Jico has been fantastic.
I bought their premium SAS stylus to upgrade my cartridge.
It was a quick and fast job.
The quality of the stylus upgrade was fantastic.
After change of Jico SAS stylus my cartridge was totally in a different league.
Could compete with cartridges selling over $1000.
Of course SAS stylus are expensive.
Can contact me on WhatsApp call 9971654401 as I am in Bangkok now.
Thanks
SANTOSH

Hi,

I bought three styli from JICO Japan, for Shure V 15 type III, M97Xe and M 44-7 carts. Excellent performance and reliable and smooth delivery I'd say.

Thanks,
Sourav

Unfortunately, it's said that the company JICO Japan has announced that the business and all the production have been stopped. Because of the deficit of staff technician, cost of material and the current world situation. Very sad news to the analog enthusiasts.

Jico declare only the actual invoice value in the shipping documents, they won't show the reduced value for shipping. Is there available any other shipping choice other than Fedex? shipping cost includes in the total value so that the dutiable amount will be high.

better buy from them and ask them to ship via ems thats the cheapest and safest method to avoid high custom duties
